In its Friday edition the Detroit News reported, as they allegedly plotted to storm and attack the Michigan Capitol, at least four of the 13 individuals identified by authorities attended rallies at the building earlier this year according to law enforcement.
Carrying firearms, 38 year old Michael Null of Plainwell and his 38 year old brother William Null of Shelbyville were among a group of militia members who stood on the Capitol steps during an April 30th demonstration against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's covid-19 restrictions.
The Nulls who are also members of Barry County's Michigan Liberty militia are each charged with providing material support for terrorist acts, which can bring up to 20 years in prison.
The Nulls are two of the 13 individuals who the FBI and Michigan State Police arrested Wednesday night.
