Bundy: Bunkerville Standoff: Judge Navarro Blinks!

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

I do wonder how the defendants will react to another delay, as they have already been detained for 21 months without a trial.

Redoubt News.com

October 6, 2017

By Shari Dovale

Today brought a full day of court hearings in the Bunkerville Standoff trial.

The Tier 1 defendants, considered the leaders of the Bunkerville Protest, were scheduled to begin jury selection on October 10th. Several motion hearings were scheduled for this week.

Then the Las Vegas shooting took place on October 1st.

The day began with Pete Santilli changing his plea to guilty for Felony Conspiracy for his role in the protest. He was released on his own recognizance with several stipulations to be followed before his scheduled sentencing on Jan 11, 2018. It is expected for Santilli to receive time-served plus probation. It was noted on the record that Santilli will not be testifying at the upcoming trial.

Ryan and Ammon Bundy have not been in the courtroom for their hearings. They have protested the mandatory strip searches performed by the Pahrump Detention Center. It was not much different today.

Judge Gloria Navarro finally seemed concerned this week that a resolution could not be found for this issue. Both defendants have made it clear that they want to attend the proceedings but were being singled out by guards at the prison for retaliatory action in the form of these strip searches.

Evidence was put forth that indicated the Pahrump Detention Center may be going too far with these particular defendants. Judge Navarro finally agreed that a change was appropriate and ordered the men to be moved to the Henderson Jail. The order included that the men were not to be stripped before leaving Pahrump. This order covered Ryan and Ammon Bundy, as well as Ryan Payne.

During the hearings today, Ryan Bundy was denied his right to represent himself. The judge felt that he was not making sense to the court, and could be getting some very bad advice from someone on his legal team.

Bundy’s assigned stand-by counsel, Angela Dows, requested, and was granted, a withdrawl from the case. A new attorney was assigned to represent Bundy, until it was determined that the scheduling conflicted would not allow him to accept the case. A new attorney will be found for Ryan next week.

For a short time, there was discussion on Ryan being moved to the third trial, so as to give a new attorney time to prepare for the case. AUSA Myhre objected to that and stated that Ryan knew the case and could get his attorney up to speed. This might have been possible if the attorney could have been secured.

It is also to be determined as to whether or not the attorney will be fully handling the case or whether it will be a stand-by attorney with Ryan defending himself. Despite the problems in the courtroom earlier, Judge Navarro made indications that she is open to reinstating Ryan if she felt he was competent.

Quite a lot of discussion ensued on whether to delay the trial, or even change the venue, due to the shooting event on October 1st.

A request was made to move the trial to Reno. This was denied by Judge Navarro.

Several delays, from 30-90 days, were requested and considered. Navarro agreed to a short delay and scheduled a status hearing on October 24th, with a new tentative trial date set on October 30th.

Todd Leventhal, attorney for Scott Drexler, stated in court that he had based his schedule on the original trial date and could not change his plans. He may not be available for a trial during the holidays. Watch for motions on this issue in the near future.

I do wonder how the defendants will react to another delay, as they have already been detained for 21 months without a trial.

It is understandable that Judge Navarro had no control over the issues requiring the delay, but neither did these defendants. They deserve more than the benefit of the doubt, at this point.

Pete Santilli Accepts Felony Plea Deal

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, Constitution, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL

Redoubt News.com

Defense teams are scrambling to preserve Santilli’s motions and subpoenas

by Shari Dovale

Pete Santilli’s attorney dropped a bombshell in a Las Vegas courtroom today when he stated that his client has reached a plea agreement with the government.

Chris Rasmussen, Santilli’s attorney, also withdrew every motion their team has filed based on the plea deal.

The agreement includes Santilli agreeing to a Felony count of obstruction of justice, based on his blocking a BLM truck prior to the Bunkerville standoff.

Santilli will receive ‘time served’ and is expected to be released within the next few days. No other details have been released for this deal.

Defense teams are scrambling to preserve Santilli’s motions and subpoenas related to the upcoming trial, as it is scheduled for jury selection to begin next week.

In related events, Ryan Payne has withdrawn his request to represent himself at the upcoming trial. Payne originally filed a late night motion to represent himself due to his disagreement with his court-appointed attorneys attempt to sever his case from that of Ryan Bundy.

Attorneys for Eric Parker and Scott Drexler had joined Payne’s attorneys in that motion.

Ryan Bundy and his brother Ammon were not at the hearing today. They did not participate in the ‘strip search’ before leaving the Pahrump facilities. Additionally, they did not take part in the hearing via telephone. We were told that they had the phones made available to them, yet they chose not to participate in this manner.

A Faretta hearing had been scheduled today for Ryan Bundy, in which it would be determined if he was competent to represent himself in this case. That hearing was rescheduled for Friday, Oct. 6th.

Judge Gloria Navarro made it clear today that if these two defendants were not in attendance, either in person or by telephone, she would take that as a waiving of their rights. Navarro would expect to rule that Ryan would not be allowed to represent himself as he will be showing that he cannot follow the rules of the court.

Fighting for the 1st Amendment in the Bunkerville Trial

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, Constitution, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

This motion should be shared with every Legislator and elected official in the US.

Fighting for the 1st Amendment in the Bunkerville Trial

by Shari Dovale

Freedom of the Press has been a driving issue in the Bunkerville Standoff trials happening in Las Vegas.

Journalist Arrested For Defense of First AmendmentFrom the ‘First Amendment Zone’ to the incarceration of a media reporter, the government has made every attempt to keep the truth from the public.

Pete Santilli has been an independent internet journalist for a number of years, reporting on government over reach and wasteful spending.

Santilli was the only full-time news media that attended the Bunkerville Standoff. There were other news reporters, but not before most of them watched Pete’s reports on his YouTube channel.

The government has repeatedly shown contempt for the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. They continue on this lawless path by incarcerating a journalist for over 18 months on charges related to the First Amendment.

Santilli has been incarcerated since January 26, 2016, without bail, and without a speedy trial.

The prosecution filed a motion to keep the jury from hearing the majority of the facts in this case. They have asked Judge Gloria Navarro to keep the defendants from any chance of a defense argument, not allow them to discuss any events leading up to the protest in April 2014, or allow anyone to show the heavily-armed SWAT teams in a ‘negative’ light, and more.

This is not the first time the prosecution made this request. Indeed, this is the third trial for some of the defendants. We have seen, in the prior trials, that Judge Navarro was quite willing to grant every request of the prosecution, and deny all motions from the defense.

However, each defendant is entitled to file, on the record, their response to the government’s request. Sometimes the responses are solely to put points for appeal on the record, for possible use in event of conviction.

The argument shown to you below is a very well presented argument for the First Amendment and Freedom of the Press. It is important, not just to defendant Pete Santilli, but to every citizen in this country. This motion should be shared with every Legislator and elected official in the US. And it certainly needs to be brought to the attention of AG Sessions and President Trump.

Bundy Trials: Bunkerville Standoff: Make This Case Go Away!

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, Constitution, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

Redoubt News.com

September 28, 2017

By Shari Dovale

The pressure from the elected officials and the public have made a dramatic difference in the Bunkerville Standoff case. Plea deals are being offered for multiple defendants this week.

Rumors abound that the prosecution is acting as if they have been told to “make this case go away”. There have been offers of plea agreements given to several defendants, including Ryan Payne, Pete Santilli, Eric Parker and Scott Drexler. There have been NO reports of any acceptance of offers, but negotiations continue.

Speculation is also running on possible plea agreements for other defendants scheduled for trial later, including Mel and Dave Bundy.

Now is the time to double-down on the letters and phone calls! Keep up the pressure! Let AG Sessions know what a miscarriage of justice this case has become. It is working!

Cliven Bundy

Cliven Bundy, patriarch of the Bundy Family, had recently fired his attorney, Bret Whipple. Whipple did not complain as he had not received any payment for sometime, therefore had not done any recent work towards preparing for the upcoming trial. He filed a motion for an expedited hearing to be released from the case.

A hearing on Whipple’s motion was held on Wednesday. Cliven argued quite well that he was prepared to defend himself. He admitted that he may not be completely up on every point, but he felt ready to proceed and was not asking for any delay in the trial.

Magistrate Leen heard the motion and proceeded to argue with Bundy for nearly 45 minutes, pointing out all the obvious problems with defending himself. Bundy stood firm in his decision, however, Leen decided to deny Bundy his right to self-representation.

Leen has ordered Whipple to continue as Bundy’s attorney. Whipple asked for a sealed hearing to discuss the financial aspect of this order. We are told that Whipple argued that a 3-month trial with no payment could bankrupt him. Leen decided then to make Whipple a court-appointed attorney to Bundy so he will be paid from the same funds as the other attorneys.

Basically, the Magistrate has enslaved Whipple to this trial, not giving him any options for release, and she has also enslaved Bundy to Whipple, though they both admit to a breakdown in their attorney-client relationship.

Other highlights from the hearing include Bundy objecting repeatedly to the prosecutors even being present for this hearing, as he felt that they should have no say in his choice of counsel. Leen made note of his (multiple) objections on this point, but did not address it further.

Prosecutors originally attempted to indict Bundy, and his sons Ammon and Ryan, under the RICO Act, calling them an organized crime family. This strategy did not work out quite so well for them. AUSA Myhre has turned this case into a personal vendetta. You would think that Cliven ran off with his Christmas stocking.

Hearings in preparation for the upcoming trial will continue next week. Jury selection is scheduled for October 10th.

Bundy 2014: The Bunkerville Prosecution Panic Attack

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, Constitution, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

Redoubt News.com

September 25, 2017

by Shari Dovale

Late night filings by the Bunkerville Prosecution team has shown there will be a repeat performance of an Unconstitutional trial taking place beginning October 10th in Las Vegas.

As in the previous two trials, of which the jury acquitted the defendants of the majority of charges, the prosecution has filed a last minute 26-page motion to exclude any type of defense these men might attempt.

The prosecution has motioned to force the defense, from the beginning of jury selection, into opening/closing arguments, and including all direct and cross examination of witnesses, to NOT bring up anything they deem to not have any foundation in the law, including Self defense.

The Bunkerville Prosecution Panic Attack

Judge Gloria Navarro has previously stated in court that there is no time when the average citizen is allowed to defend themselves against any Law Enforcement Officer (LEO). She has even stated that the legal carrying of a holstered sidearm in an open-carry state, such as Nevada, is considered assault on any LEO that happens to see it.

This is obviously a political ploy for this activist judge. No one has achieved the desired gun control, so Navarro has declared it in open court.

Additionally, they are demanding that no one mention the US Constitution, as they believe no citizen is qualified to understand it. This includes the jury members.

The Bunkerville Prosecution Panic Attack

If this were true, then how is it legal for the NFL to protest during their games, as they cannot possible understand the First Amendment? How is it legal for AntiFa or Black Lives Matter to protest a Donald Trump event, as they are not legally authorized to interpret the Constitution? Why do we have a legal holiday celebrating the work of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. if the citizens cannot possibly understand the legal doctrine?

Because this court is using the US Constitution as a weapon, and they are setting legal precedent to use it against the citizens in the future. Is the ultimate goal to destroy and rid this country of the documents that gave us Freedom? If allowed to continue, this court will succeed where no one has before.

If the prosecution thought that the BLM was correct in everything they did on April 12, 2014, then why are they so afraid to tell the jury the facts? If they can claim the BLM acted properly, why not explain that to the jury? Why do they believe the jury is not intelligent enough to sort through the hyperbole and come to their conclusions?

They know that the average citizen, of which the jury is comprised, is not going to believe that the BLM was correct in preparing for a war with these ranchers. They are not going to see several hundred fully militarized armed agents as anything but overkill.

They will not see the ‘First Amendment Zone’ as legal under the Constitution. They will not see the manhandling of citizens, such as Margaret Houston, as being appropriate. They will not see the placement of ‘snipers’, and their willingness to shoot civilians holding a protest, as anything but an over reach of their authority.

This entire misleading motion seems to be just another panic-attack by AUSA Myhre and Judge Navarro. They are so concerned about jury nullification, which they know is perfectly legal, that they continue to work themselves into a frenzy.

Maybe they should just take a Xanax and call it a day.

Bundy: Idaho’s Raul Labrador Weighs in on Bunkerville Standoff

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, Constitution, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs, State gov

Redoubt News.com

September 15, 2017

by Shari Dovale

Earlier this month, nearly a third of the current Idaho Legislature had signed on to a letter in support of the Idaho residents currently being persecuted in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Federal government is prosecuting these men for their part in a protest held Bunkerville, NV in 2014.

Spearheaded by Rep. Dorothy Moon, the letter was signed by 33 current state legislators and 5 former legislators. Since then, the number of sponsors to the letter has increased to a reported 53.

The letter was addressed to US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, with copies going to President Donald Trump, multiple US elected/appointed officials as well as all the principals in the court.

Though the letter reached the Court prior to the pre-trial hearing, it had already been decided to put Eric Parker and Scott Drexler in with the Tier One defendants. That trial is scheduled to begin on October 10th.

Just this week, Congressman Raul Labrador added his sponsorship with an additional letter to AG Sessions. He includes:

The failure to secure guilty verdicts in two different trials with two different juries should serve as evidence of the weakness of the government’s case and should be taken into account as a third trial is contemplated. There is a strong possibility that a miscarriage of justice is being committed.

This is the latest request of the current administration to look into this personal vendetta of the Federal Court system. Multiple online petitions have been signed with the most prominent being from political strategist Roger Stone, who says:

No more well-defined example of the injustices wrought by the hands of an out-of-control Federal Government can be found than the case of the Bundy Family from the State of Nevada, whose multiple family members rot in a Federal Prison on this very day.

Representative Labrador did ask for a timely response from the Attorney General, so we will wait patiently, albeit a bit anxiously.

Bundy: Are feds lying about Bunkerville LEO’s being ‘outgunned?’

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, Constitution, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

Redoubt News.com

Federal prosecutors are pulling out all stops in order to get the convictions they seek.

…there were no incidents of actual aggression on the parts of any of the protesters. There were over a hundred protesters who went to Bunkerville to defend Bundy’s cattle, but many on the scene were women, children, and curious onlookers. It’s true the feds were ‘outnumbered,’ but the implication that they were met with an armed force of aggressive protesters verges on the absurd.”

by Marjorie Haun

(Free Range Report) – As federal prosecutors gear up to try the ‘tier-1’ defendants in the Bundy Ranch trial, beginning in October, it might be helpful to revisit the points on which the feds, thus far, have failed to convict all but 2 of the defendants. One possible factor is the abundance on the Internet of personal footage, professional news video, and thousands of still photos of federal law enforcement officers (LEOs) from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and FBI, who swarmed Cliven Bundy’s ranch in a military-style raid in April of 2014. The prosecution’s narrative that ‘federal personnel were in fear for their lives’ rings hollow when the visual evidence is presented. But that visual evidence, to a large degree, has not been allowed into Judge Gloria Navarro’s Las Vegas courtroom. Nevertheless, most of it remains in the public domain.

Check out the photos on this link to the article:

Are feds lying about Bunkerville LEO’s being ‘outgunned?’

 

During the first phase of the trial last March, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, testified for the prosecution. The initial trial ended in a mistrial, and the retrial of the same defendants on the same counts, concluded in August of 2017 and ended with a number of acquittals, as well as a deadlocked jury on counts against 2 defendants. On March 9, Las Vegas Now reported about Sheriff Lombardo’s testimony:

The Bureau of Land Management put together a complex operation to round up the cattle, but on April 12th, Bundy supporters showed up and some of them were armed.

BLM agents and local law enforcement were outnumbered. Sheriff Lombardo helped negotiate the release of cattle so that the standoff would end peacefully.

Cameras aren’t allowed inside federal court, but this is what Lombardo told the I-Team in 2014. It was very similar to what he told reporter George Knapp.

“We were outgunned, outmanned, there would not have been a good result from it,” Lombardo said. “The bottom line is, bloodshed over cattle, unacceptable. Nobody wanted to go in that direction.”

Lombardo said, in court, he didn’t know what kind of training the armed protestors may have had. He was concerned there might be an accidental discharge or that someone would fire their gun because emotions were running so high.

There were a number of protesters present who possessed sidearms, and held them in an ‘open-carry’ fashion, which is constitutionally permissible, and, as ranchers, part of their working gear. One protester, Eric Parker, was photographed on an overpass using a rifle to scope law enforcement officers who had guns trained on protesters, onlookers and even members of the media who were watching events unfold from the overpass and nearby embankments.

Eric Parker, acquitted in the second trial of most counts, is awaiting a third-trial on charges of assault and threats against Bureau of Land Management agents. Although media have used photos of Parker peering through the scope of his rifle from between cement barriers atop the I-15 overpass, to symbolize the ‘aggression’ of the protesters, one can clearly see that curious tourists, many with cameras, are standing just feet away from Parker, apparently with no fear for their safety.

Leaked footage, apparently taken by an unidentified BLM officer, largely neutralizes the prosecution’s case that government LEO’s were, in the words of Sheriff Lombardo, ‘outgunned and outmanned.’ And although Sheriff Lombardo stated that there was ‘fear’ among the LEOs and ’emotions’ were running high, there were no incidents of actual aggression on the parts of any of the protesters.

There were over a hundred protesters who went to Bunkerville to defend Bundy’s cattle, but many on the scene were women, children, and curious onlookers. It’s true the feds were ‘outnumbered,’ but the implication that they were met with an armed force of aggressive protesters verges on the absurd. All the armed protesters stayed within the boundaries of their rights to ‘keep and bear arms’ under the 2nd Amendment, and exhibited civil behavior. The charge that Eric Parker ever posed an actual threat to federal agents has not yet been proven. In fact, as seen in the video below, it was leaders of the protest who approached the lead LEO of the operation, BLM Special Agent Dan Love, and told him that those under his command who had high power rifles aimed at protesters, were ‘escalating’ the tensions and needed to back off.

The final phase of the Bundy Ranch trial is set to begin next month. This will be the feds’ third attempt at convicting several of the defendants, including Eric Parker and Scott Drexler, both from Idaho. According to newly-released court documents, federal prosecutors are pulling out all stops in order to get the convictions they seek, including using social media posts and interactions to prove ‘conspiracy.’ But if convicted, the elderly Cliven Bundy, his sons Ammon and Ryan, and other defendants may face decades in federal prison.

It is likely Judge Navarro will continue to put impossible restrictions on the defense, and disallow any evidence casting a bad light on the federal government, but we encourage you to share this article, and help ensure that as many Americans as possible can view the leaked footage above, so they may be able to make a more balanced determination about who were the aggressors in Bunkerville, Nevada in April of 2014.

Bundy: Charges Dismissed Against Refuge Occupier Pete Santilli

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, Constitution, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs, Liberty

by OPB Staff OPB |

Sept. 6, 2016 4:30 p.m. | Updated: Sept. 14, 2016 10:47 a.m

UPDATE (5:38 p.m.) U.S. District Court Judge Anna Brown has approved federal prosecutors’ request to dismiss charges against Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupier Peter Santilli.

Federal prosecutors filed a motion seeking to dismiss the charges against Santilli Tuesday afternoon.

“The government has decided that the interests of justice do not support further pursuit of these charges against Santilli,” prosecutors wrote in the motion.

The trial of Santilli and seven other refuge occupiers was set to begin Wednesday with jury selection in downtown Portland. The case will move forward without Santilli.

Santilli is an internet radio host who broadcast live from the wildlife refuge during the occupation.

Santilli’s attorney, Thomas Coan, argued that his client’s presence as a journalist at the wildlife refuge was protected by the First Amendment. He said he’d been pushing for the government to dismiss the charges against Santilli.

“This is something that we’ve been pushing for, for a long time,” said Tom Coan, Pete Santilli’s defense attorney. “I have always believed that Pete never had any criminal intent in what he did out there … He came out here with the intent to report and to document and to lawfully protest.”

Deb Jordan, Santilli’s partner and fellow journalist, said, “Pete didn’t have to make a deal. He didn’t have to turn against the people he stood for. He didn’t have to do any of those things. He stood on principle. And on the principle of the type of journalism that he does. And he stayed steadfast that he was not guilty.”

Santilli still faces several charges in Nevada for a 2014 standoff with the Bureau of Land Management, where he’s accused of conspiring to assault federal officers and brandishing a firearm in relation to a crime of violence.

Bundy Trials: Prosecutors Exposed for Concealing Information AGAIN

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

Prosecutor Steven Myhre is refusing to hand over audio recordings between Special Agent In Charge Daniel P. Love, BLM sniper teams, other tactical personnel, and possible informants

Prosecutors Exposed!
Concealing Information AGAIN

It’s all about protecting Special Agent Daniel P. Love

by Deb Jordan

(GMN) – PROSECUTORS in Las Vegas got back to work on Monday, and in the case of USA vs Cliven Bundy et al — it was dirty “business as usual.”

It was revealed that Steven Myhre and the Department of Justice are refusing to hand over audio recordings they are suspected of  having in their possession containing radio transmissions the defense believes are recordings between Special Agent In Charge Daniel P. Love, BLM sniper teams, other tactical personnel, and possible informants who were on the ground surveilling Bundy Ranch as far back as March in 2014.

These recordings are vital to the defense in that the indictment against rancher Cliven Bundy and his co-defendants specifically states that Mr. Bundy and several others told lies and exaggerated the situation between Bundy and the BLM for the purpose of recruiting gunmen to come and help get the rancher’s cattle back.  Up and until the first trial which began last February, the BLM denied the use of snipers and other tactical personnel during “Operation Gold Butte” the BLM’s official name for the Bundy Ranch cattle impoundment.

In dash-cam video made public during the first two trials you can clearly hear cross-talk in the background asking agents to move communications to TAC-Le Channel (329) while communicating with ICP communications director Toni Suminski, [SAC] Daniel P. Love, snipers on the mesa, and other BLM tactical gunmen in the wash.  Toni Suminski testified in court under oath in the first Bundy trial,  that recordings of those transmissions were lost after the the hard drive running the recording software had mysteriously come un-plugged during the protest on April 12, 2014.  Defense teams are now asking for recordings captured before that date ..

Suminski also admitted under oath she had shredded garbage bags full of documents concerning Operation Gold Butte that were found in a dumpster at the ICP – saying it was “routine” for her to do that.

TAC LE  Channel (329) was never mentioned in documents provided to the defense or on any of the documentation outlining  “Operation Gold Butte” plans.  The information was brought to light after a researcher listening to background chatter on dash-cam video made public during the last trial – brought it to the attention of defense attorney’s.

Snipers positioned on the Mesa above the Toquop Wash – Bundy Ranch April 12th-201

United States Park Service sharp-shooter Alexandria Burke, who was on the mesa with other snipers during the protest and trying to get a clear shot to “eliminate” Eric Parker who had taken a prone position to defend himself, is of special interest to investigators for the defense.  If there is anything on these recordings of her communicating with other snipers while she was at Bundy Ranch on or before April 12th 2014, the defense feel they are entitled to hear it.

The Jury was under-whelmed by Burkes tearful testimony in the last trial saying her testimony was uncomfortable and that she embarrassed herself and Law Enforcement.  They did not believe her testimony to be truthful.

The Incident Commander for Operation Gold Butte, SAC Daniel P. Love, has recently been found guilty of  misconduct where before and during an investigation by the Office Of The Inspector General he demanded subordinates destroy damning information about him and others pending a  Congressional inquiry.  In that investigation witnesses stated two of Love’s lap tops disappeared along with deleted emails, documents, and shredded evidence.

Love is also accused of a series of crimes including the stealing of evidence from artifacts raids he and former FBI Greg Bretzing conducted in 2009 which resulted in the suicide of three of their victims – including that of Dr. James Redd of  Blanding, Utah.  Prosecutor Steven Myhre failed to alert defense attorneys that an investigation was being conducted against their star witness who is and was Bundy’s #1 accuser.  The information was not brought to light until right before the first trial began – where Judge Gloria Navarro had already agreed to a motion filed by the Prosecution to protect SAC Love from testifying during the trial.

Rand Stover, second in command to Dan Love during Operation Gold Butte, and a key prosecution witness, was also involved in a scheme to broaden the scope of hiring practices for Daniel P. Love’s department so that Love’s friend Mark Jucca could be hired over more qualified applicants for a job with the BLM. This information was also held back from the defense by Prosecutor Myhre.

Ironically, the U.S. Attorneys office in Utah has declined prosecuting Love for  these heinous crimes while the rancher Cliven Bundy and co-defendants sit in jail awaiting trial.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for Utah declined to file criminal charges related to evidence mishandling, said spokeswoman Melodie Rydalch, who declined comment about the decision. Megan Crandall, a land management bureau spokeswoman, said Thursday he remains an employee, but declined to elaborate.

A lawyer for Love, Lisa Kleine, did not immediately [respond to a] telephone message seeking comment, said Linsay Whitehurst of the Associated Press.

Defense attorney’s contemplate that TAC LE channel (329) was used throughout the operation from the beginning and could likely reveal much needed information that would contradict the Governments insistence that Cliven Bundy and others conspired to lie to the public to get them to come to Bundy Ranch and join in a “massive armed assault”  using a made up story about the aggressiveness of BLM special forces who were assaulting the Bundy family even before the impoundment began.  They are asking for the recordings of radio transmissions from TAC LE Channel (329) dating back to March of 2014, and so far the Government has refused those request.

Prosecutors’s and the Department of Justice have developed a pattern and history of withholding evidence from the defense for USA vs Cliven Bundy et al — say’s one researcher working on the case; During the retrial of Parker, Drexler, Stewart, and Lovelien – the names, addresses and telephone numbers of FBI personnel who were present at the protest and subsequent witnesses for the prosecution, have been removed from the witness list making it impossible for defense attorney’s to subpoena them.

Prosecutors literally refused to disclose witness information to keep the defense from being able to subpoena and question the FBI.

Bundy Trials: Did Navarro Cause the Jury to Nullify?

Judge Navarro made every attempt to shut down the jury as she had the defense.

by Shari Dovale

The recent case of the Bunkerville Retrial ended with 34 of 40 charges to be found ‘Not Guilty’ and the remaining charges to be 11-1 in favor of acquittal by the jury.

This trial had an unusual element involved, specifically allowing the jury to ask questions of the witnesses. This is not unheard of in lower level courts, but almost never used at the Federal level. It was not allowed in the first trial of these defendants.

Judge Navarro rarely censored any jury question for the prosecution witnesses. However it became very apparent that she would not allow the jury to ask their pressing questions when it came to the defense.

Defendant Eric Parker attempted to testify, yet was removed from the witness stand by Judge Navarro after a few minutes. The jury saw this, and was left in confusion when it was not explained.

We learned from the transcripts what was said during the sidebars:

Parker was removed from the stand for mentioning the men on the hill:

The jury was left a bit dazed, as was evidenced by the looks on their faces. Parker was also stunned by Navarro’s decision, as he seemed to be making every attempt to comply with the court’s orders. The jury was not allowed to ask him any questions.

Defendant Scott Drexler was allowed to testify, in a very limited scope. When his testimony was finished, the jury submitted several questions.

The following is a list of the questions, with pertinent sidebar discussion, and Judge Navarro’s decision for each. It is apparent the jury wanted to get the information they knew was being kept from them. It is, also, obvious that at least one juror is concerned for the defendant’s Constitutional rights:

Q: No. 131, “When and how did you learn that the Long Bow agency were FBI agents?”

THE COURT: Any objection?
MS. CREEGAN: I think it’s not relevant.
THE COURT: I guess it’s relevant depending on what the answer is. Did he know at the time or afterwards? You all know this answer better than I did. It seems like he didn’t know until after the arrest; right?

MR. MARCHESE: After.
THE COURT: Okay. So, I agree. It wouldn’t be relevant.

Q: No. 132, “In your testimony you said a person with a gun has more respect. What makes a gun give you respect?”

THE COURT: Is that argumentative?

MS. CREEGAN: It seems argumentative.
THE COURT: Yeah.
MS. CREEGAN: We object on the basis that it’s argumentative.
MR. LEVENTHAL: No objection. Well, it’s not argumentative, it’s his thoughts. It’s going directly to him. It his thoughts. What he thinks. It’s not argumentative. It’s not asking for an argument. He made the statement and it’s directly on point from that statement, so . . . it just — to me, it’s more clarification for what it is that he’s saying. There’s nothing argumentative about the question or the answer.
THE COURT: I think it is argumentative. I’m not going to ask 132

Q: 133 has several parts. The first one is, “What generated your interest in the Bundy topic in the first place?”

MS. CREEGAN: Government objects that it’s going to call for — he’s going to take that license to go into something he shouldn’t have, something like five times in his
testimony he went into something he shouldn’t have and I think it’s clear he’ll take into opportunity to do that.
THE COURT: The general — the information requested in this question I don’t think is necessarily going to be more than what the defense has already elicited and does appear that it would only encourage him to get into the improper areas. So I won’t ask that question.

Q: The second question in Jury Note 133 is, “Why were you interested in protesting at this spot?”

MS. CREEGAN: That’s almost the same question, just rephrased.
MR. LEVENTHAL: It was his testimony that he went down to go protest.

THE COURT: Yeah. I agree. So it doesn’t – it’s irrelevant what the . . .

Q: Number 3 on Jury Note 133 is, “Did you feel as though the Bundy protest was an attempt to protect constitutional rights?”

MS. CREEGAN: It seems like this will call for the first and second response which has already been prohibited by Court order.
THE COURT: Yeah.

THE COURT: I agree. It doesn’t look like —

Q: last question for Jury Note 133 is, “Did you fear for the safety of other protestors on the day in question? If so, why?”

THE COURT: It gets into the area that the Court order prohibits.

Q: Jury Note 134, “When did Mr. Drexler learn he had been interviewed by undercover FBI for the documentary?”

THE COURT: So this is the same as before.
THE COURT: So it sounds like they’re trying to elicit whether he knew about it when he gave the information? I’m not sure how that . . .
MS. CREEGAN: I think if the Court asks it that way, did you know at the time you were doing it that that would be sufficient to capture what they’re asking.
THE COURT: Yeah. All right. So I’ll change it to, “Did you know at the time you gave statements?” “Did you know at the time you were interviewed for the documentary that they were FBI undercover agents?”
