As an excerpt from the bulletin called Jane’s Revenge flashed across the screen, host Margaret Brennan asked Whitmer, “How concerned are you about violence? What do you see on the ground?’

But Whitmer’s answer made no mention of the group.

“I’m concerned about a lot of things that are happening in the United States right now,” she said.

“And frankly, the last few decisions that have come out of this Supreme Court of the United States are: make America a lot more dangerous, more guns, less rights, less health care, it’s scary.”

She suggested that institutions like the Supreme Court “are now being corrupted” by politics.

Brennan pressed Whitmer for her response to Jane’s Revenge.

“But this warning about threats against federal officials, including judges, worries you about active threats in Michigan?” the host asked.

Whitmer replied, ‘Of course I am. Margaret, I am the recipient of so much ugliness and hatred that has often been fomented by the former president.”

“This is a very scary moment. And with the spread of the ugly rhetoric, the terrifying spread of guns in America and less and less restrictions,” she said.

The group, Jane's Revenge, is accused of vandalizing the building that houses Republican Representative Tim Walberg's campaign office.

Though she didn’t address Jane’s Revenge once, the rising Democratic star said “this is a very scary moment” for the country and vowed to “fight for” abortion rights in her state, despite going up against a majority Republican lawmaker who wants to ban the medical procedure.

So far, nine states have banned abortion from Sunday following the Supreme Court ruling on Friday, and at least a dozen are expected to follow soon.

Even before the decision was made, Jane’s Revenge made its mission clear with targeted attacks on anti-choice centers in Michigan, Colorado and North Carolina, among others.

Last week, the group’s name was sprayed on a site where Republican Representative Tim Walberg’s campaign office in Michigan is located.
