REPORT: Fed Agency Committed ‘Militaristic’ Operation Against Nevada Rancher
An investigation into the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) handling of the 2014 Nevada standoff with rancher Cliven Bundy revealed “incredible bias,” widespread misconduct and likely illegal actions by the BLM.
Prosecutors shared the report with the Bundys’ defense attorneys, prompting a petition to Judge Gloria Navarro for a mistrial, or for the case to be dismissed altogether, The Oregonian reports. Navarro’s judgement is expected to come down Wednesday.
“It’s time for our men to go home and start making a living for their families,” Carol Bundy, Cliven Bundy’s wife, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We’re two years behind. We’ve got a lot of catching up to do.”
The investigation’s report, made by BLM Special Agent Larry Wooten and addressed to the Department of Justice, was publicized last week after Washington state Rep. Matt Shea posted it on his Facebook page, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Wooten’s 18-page report discussed some of what he witnessed during his three-year investigation, such as a BLM agent’s “kill list” featuring people who had committed suicide while under investigation by the agency, BLM agents and officials referring to the Bundys as “retards” and “douche bags,” agents bragging about “grinding” a Bundy family member’s face into gravel, and lead prosecutor and Nevada’s acting U.S. Attorney Steve Myhre’s “preferred ignorance” of investigation details that would benefit the Bundys’ defense case.
Former Special Agent Dan Love, who was in charge of impounding Cliven Bundy’s cattle in 2014, conducted “the most intrusive, oppressive, large scale and militaristic trespass cattle impound possible” against Bundy’s ranch against the direction of the U.S. attorney’s office, according to Wooten. The Bundys’ defense strategy accuses the BLM of using overly-aggressive and threatening tactics.
Navarro has ruled that Myhre’s prosecution team has committed numerous Brady Act violations failing to turn over exculpatory evidence, evidence that may exonerate the Bundys. In light of the violations and Wooten’s memo, Navarro sent the jury home last week as she considers ruling a mistrial or dismissing the case.
Wooten was removed from his position in the investigation in February by Myhre and his notes and case materials were taken. Assistant Special Agent Kent Klemen carried out Myhre’s order to gather Wooten’s data in what Wooten called a “raid” on his office.
Myhre declined TheDCNF’s request for comment.
I sure hope those involved in weaponizing our federal agencies against the people of this country will someday be held accountable.

Judge Declares Mistrial In Bundy Case, Says Government Willfully Withheld Evidence
More on the weaponization of our government against it's citizens. The corruption under the BO admin was astounding. I'm not sure how we get to where they can be trusted again. For me... Probably not in my lifetime. Corruption of the BLM and the FBI working in concert. Zero good people on the inside to blow the whistle.

Lawmakers Seek Investigation After Whistleblower Exposes Federal Thugs
I would really like to see these federal thugs taken down. The list of aggressions is long. This doesn't even mention the murder and cover up of the murder of Levoy Finicum by FBI agents. If ever there was obvious evidence of an out of control bureaucracy that has turned on the citizens, this is it IMO. Yes, big government simply turns evil.
