Three men were acquitted on all charges Friday in connection with claims that they were involved in a scheme to abduct Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in 2020.

Eric Molitor, William Null, and Michael Null were all acquitted of providing material support for a terrorist act and having a handgun while committing or trying to commit a criminal on one count each.

Prosecutors claimed the guys targeted the Democratic governor’s northern Michigan vacation cabin and spied on her.

Molitor and the Null brothers, obviously moved by the jury’s decision in a Michigan courtroom, are the final of 14 people charged in state and federal courts in connection with the scheme.

In 2020, eight men were accused at the state level, while six more were indicted on federal charges. In the end, nine people were convicted or pled guilty in the case, while five were acquitted.
