U.S. to call first witness in Bundy trial; BLM personnel records sought by defense

LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) — The first of three trials involving six "low-level" defendants in the 2014 Cliven Bundy ranch standoff case enters its second week Monday at the Lloyd George Federal Courthouse downtown.

The prosecution is scheduled to call its first witness. Opening arguments were held Thursday.

RELATED | Jury selection goes smoothly in opening day of first Bundy conspiracy trial

Chief Judge Gloria Navarro could decide to hear defense attorney motions filed last week that seek the personnel records of all Bureau of Land Management agents involved in the standoff.

The armed standoff culminated April 12, 2014, with Bundy's cattle being returned to him and the BLM calling off its effort. Bundy had not paid grazing fees for 20 years, and the government had secured several court orders to remove his cattle from public lands.

Defense attorneys apparently plan to portray federal agents assigned to the confiscation effort as excessively militant or aggressive.

The major focus of defense efforts could be the actions of a supervisory agent who defense lawyers believe was in charge of BLM operations at Bunkerville.

A recently released report by the Department of Interior's Office of Inspector General painted an unsavory picture of an unnamed supervisory agent who acted unethically to secure tickets and other benefits for family and friends at the 2015 Burning Man Festival in northern Nevada and later acted unethically to get a friend hired for a BLM position over other more qualified applicants.

It is unknown when ...

The first six defendants are considered "low-level" operators who took orders from other higher-level people who allegedly conspired against the federal government as it tried to roundup Bundy's cattle in northeast Clark County. Bundy stopped paying federal grazing fees in 1993 when the Bureau of Land Management ordered his herd reduced.

100s of supporters rolled into town & on the night of April 11th, the govt told Bundy that they had stopped the roundup & were leaving. 12/

Bundy had won. The government had capitulated to avoid a violent standoff. 13/

JJ MacNab‏ @jjmacnab
This is where the story turns dark. Bundy didn't tell his supporters that night that the government was packing up to leave. 14/

He and Ryan had a plan to confront the feds in the wash near the cattle pens, and they decided to go through with it anyway. 15/

That night, according to Cliven, God spoke to him and told him to send his supporters out to collect all of the federal agents' guns. 16/

If Cliven didn't follow God's instructions, those guns would be used in a Civil War against the people. 17/

Imagine a dry wash, shaped like an hourglass, that passes under a busy highway. At the narrowest point, there's a temporary metal fence. 27/

On one side, there are 3 dozen fed agents taking cover behind SUV doors. They carry a range of weapons, from pepper pellets to rifles. 28/

They looked confused & very freaked out. The BLM told Cliven the night before that they were leaving, so there should be no standoff. 29/

One of them sent a quick text message to his wife, telling her he loved her. 30/

More importantly, armed militants were stationed on the overpass, in pickup trucks, on the hillsides, hiding in the brush and shadows. 33/

Testimony beginning in trial for 6 in Bundy ranch standoff

Associated Press

Monday, Feb. 13, 2017 | 7:51 a.m.

Witness testimony is beginning in Las Vegas for six defendants accused of taking up arms to stop a federal roundup of cattle near Nevada cattleman Cliven Bundy's ranch in April 2014.

A U.S. District Court jury that heard opening statements Thursday returns to court today to begin hearing evidence.

A prosecutor last week described the defendants as lawbreaking gunmen who answered Bundy's call to prevent federal Bureau of Land Management agents from seizing his cattle in a decades-long dispute over grazing rules and unpaid fees.

Defense attorneys portrayed ...

A Shocking Twist in Bundy Ranch Case, New Video Proves BLM Aggression!

The first of three Bundy Ranch Trials is finally underway and testimony from Government witnesses has begun but already a shocking development has occurred.

A video surfaced online showing previously unseen footage from the Bundy Ranch protest in 2014. Defendants have always insisted that the Government escalated tension in the Tuquop Wash on Saturday, April 12th 2014. Leaked video shows federal agents being instructed to sling or put their long guns out of view. Instead, Special Agent in Charge Daniel P. Love deployed militarized BLM and US Park Police agents who subsequently pointed their weapons at protesters. Body cam footage records agents laughing about shooting animals and speaking as if they wanted an armed confrontation.

The narrative and timeline of events has always been disputed. Defendants insist that the Sheriff had announced that BLM’s roundup of Bundy cattle would cease. Eager to watch the cattle return to Golden Butte, protesters met horseback riders in the Tuquop Wash who would guide the cattle under the highway and back to the range.

They arrived to find federal agents with weapons raised and repeated attempts to tell them to disperse. People with binoculars could see snipers positioned on elevated ground behind the wash. The aggressive nature of federal agent’s action caused some citizens to take defensive postures out of the reasonable concern for grave bodily injury or death.

The Government would have people believe that Bundy dispatched an armed assault force to retrieve his cattle. Although it is well-documented that the Sheriff had already announced a cease of roundup activity, this video depicts ...

Update from Lisa Bundy:

Yesterday Ammon called me and asked me to do 2 things for him...he said, "Lisa, I need you to get me 2 Book of Mormons in the Spanish language and then I need you too look into the cultures of a specific country, India....will you see if the church is there and if it would be appropriate to share God's love and message to someone who is of that descent"?

After I got off the phone with him. I wept. And then I went to work.

He is in great sorrow and bondage and YET still looking out for his neighbor.
