The Federal government injustice against Cliven Bundy and his family continues as prosecutors, who were severely slapped by Judge Navarro, who dismissed all charges against them with prejudice in their recent trial in Las Vegas. Not sufficiently shamed by Navarro’s public scolding as she ordered the defendants set free, these rogue agents asked the judge to reconsider the dismissal. As Tim Brown reports for Freedom Outpost:
As the trial moves forward in the case of FBI W. Joseph Astarita, a member of the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team (HRT), who is charged with lying about firing at LaVoy Finicum in Oregon during a protest with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s sons, the Department of Justice is apparently attempting to try Bundy a third time. This is coming even as the same prosecution violated the rights of the defendants and engaged in multiple Brady violations (something we are also seeing come to light in Oregon), which led to the last trial being dismissed with prejudice. Now, Cliven Bundy, by way of his attorney, has said that he will fight attempts by the DOJ to appeal the dismissal and retry him again.
Larry Klayman, the Bundy’s attorney, said of the 2014 standoff near the Bunkervill ranch owned by the Bundys, as reported by Chris White of the Daily Caller:
“My client and friend Cliven Bundy is confident that the Ninth Circuit will affirm Judge Navarro’s dismissal,” Larry Klayman, legal counsel for Bundy, said in a press statement Thursday. The government’s case was “based on prosecutorial misconduct,” he noted.
“That the prosecutors who committed and furthered this gross prosecutorial misconduct would now seek to file a notice of appeal underscores that my once proud alma mater, the U.S. Department of Justice, has become the Department of Injustice,” he added.
A federal judge rejected prosecutors’ request Tuesday to reconsider her dismissal of the case against Bundy. The prosecutors plan on appealing the case to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.
CSPOA is shocked, though not surprised, to see these corrupt actions by a once highly-regarded federal agency. We urge members and friends to contact Attorney General Sessions and demand he put an end to this prosecutorial crime spree and punish those who participated in it.
