2 charged in Michigan plots served in US Marines
DETROIT (AP) - The U.S. Marine Corps confirmed Saturday that two men indicted in conspiracies against Michigan's government had spent time in the military.
Officials are "aware" of the circumstances surrounding Daniel Harris and Joseph Morrison and will be assisting in some way with the investigation, the Marine Corps said in a statement it emailed.
Harris is one of six men charged with conspiring to kidnap Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer ahead of the November 3rd election. Morrison, 26, is one of seven men charged under the state's counter-terrorism law of allegedly attempting to storm the Michigan Capitol and start a "civil war." Authorities say he was a founding member of "anti-government, anti-law enforcement" Wolverine Watchmen.
Harris' military record reveals that he was a marksman and served from 2014 through last year. He reached the rank of NCO E-4 in 2019 and his last service assignment was at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
Morrison was a Lance Corporal and served in the Marine Corps Reserve from 2015 through Thursday, the day he was charged with state charges. The Marine Corps said his departure from the reserves "had nothing to do with his current situation."
Morrison's last assignment was with the 4th Marine Logistics Group in Battle Creek, Michigan.
