[Ed. – The three to whom the terrorism charge might have applied still face other felony charges. As it has always sounded like they should.   But we’ll see what sticks.]

A Michigan judge on Monday dismissed charges of threat of terrorism against three of the men accused of plotting to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, though they will still face trial on other felony charges, The Detroit News reports.

Judge Michael Klaeren of the12th District Court on Monday dismissed the charges of false report or threat of terrorism against Munith residents Joseph Morrison and Pete Musico while declining to add it to the charges faced by Milford resident Paul Bellar. …

The three men will go on to face trial on charges of gang membership, felony firearm and providing material support to terrorism. They are among seven with alleged ties to the militia group Wolverine Watchmen who are accused of plotting to kidnap Whitmer, who face a combined 19 felony charges.
