AG Sessions orders examination of Bundy case after mistrial over prosecution bungling

Government failed to turn over evidence.

 

– The Washington Times – Thursday, December 21, 2017


Attorney General Jeff Sessions stepped into the Bundy prosecution after Wednesday’s mistrial, ordering a third-party examination of the case in light of the latest government snafu.

“The attorney general takes this issue very seriously and has personally directed that an expert in the [Justice Department’s] discovery obligations be deployed to examine the case and advise as to the next steps,” said Ian D. Prior, the department’s principal deputy director of public affairs, in a late Wednesday statement.

The decision to intervene came after Chief U.S. District Court Judge Gloria Navarro declared a mistrial over the government’s “willful failure to disclose information” to the defense, saying it would have been “impossible” for the four co-defendants to receive a fair trial.

“Failure to turn over such evidence violates due process,” Judge Navarro said in the courtroom, the Arizona Republic reported. “A fair trial at this point is impossible.”

Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his sons Ammon and Ryan Bundy, and Ryan Payne of Montana have been charged with 15 felony counts stemming from the 2014 armed standoff with the Bureau of Land Management at the Bundy ranch near Bunkerville.

The examination represents the first direct public intervention by the attorney general in the Nevada case, which began last year under then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

  1. ” latest government snafu.”

    There’s no “snafu” about it. Had “We the Regular Folk” pulled this crud, they would have us brought up on “Conspiracy” charges. Period!

  2. Folks, if Sessions stepped in it’s because he wanted a guilty verdict too. Tells me he’s complicit with the uranium one deal since that’s what this trial is all about. This administration is no different than the rest.

  3. “I am from the government and I am here to help you”
    What part of Fraud on the Court do we not understand not one time but now three?
    Altering government documents, and withholding altered government documents.
    All grounds for disbarment.
    Tuxkabin has spoken

  4. Not a snafu it were almost a fubar. Obama, the BLM, and Holder, nearly started the 2nd American Civil war. When U look at what happened at Lexington Green and Concord and compare it to the Bundy stand off, it was similar in nature. Our founding fathers codified the 2nd AMENDMENT for just such an occasion.

  5. What human is so evil as to with cheer do what was executed on the Bundy family? Mirrors nazi Germany to the tee! The thug mercenaries that pulled the trigger on Bundy’s cattle are murderous; one step away from pulling the same trigger on “We the People.” Trial aside, this entire episode demonstrates why these ABC agencies should not be weaponized and have police powers. Just wait till it happens to you. Will you have the patience and civility that the Bundy’s have demonstrated? What free man tolerates this injustice? We’ll soon see the true color of Sessions. Friend or Foe?
