Bundy Appeal Update: Just a Handful of Documents?
Last week, I told you that February 6, 2019, Federal Prosecutors appealed U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro’s January 8, 2018 dismissal of the case against Cliven Bundy and three other defendants, citing the prosecutors’ “flagrant misconduct.”
As I reported in my book, Cliven Bundy: American Patriot, in her mistrial ruling the month before her dismissal of the case, Judge Navarro:
listed six types of evidence that she said prosecutors deliberately withheld before trial, including information about the presence of an FBI surveillance camera on a hill overlooking the Bundy ranch and information concerning issues outside the ranch, maps, an FBI log with entries about snipers, threat assessments that indicated the Bundys were not violent, and that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was trying to provoke a conflict by antagonizing the Bundys and their supporters.
