Bundy Ranch Trial Bombshell: Agents told to stop day before major confrontation with protesters

Image result for bundy ranchLaw-enforcement officers were ordered by the federal special agent in charge to cease "all operations" hours before an armed standoff at a Nevada ranch reached its tension-filled zenith in 2014.

But they did not. Three law-enforcement officers testified in federal court Thursday that they maintained their positions throughout the night and into the next day, anticipating a bloody gunfight at Bundy Ranch.

The officers told jurors they feared for their lives, prayed to God and thought they would see their partners get shot as cattle ranchers and militia members squared off against federal authorities.

None of the officers explained in court why they were ordered to engage anti-government protesters — and open fire with less than lethal weapons — after being told at least twice to stand down, abandon their efforts to round up private cattle on federal land and leave.

"We were still under threat," U.S. Parks Police Officer Tara McBride said. "My understanding was we were ceasing gathering cattle and we were to remain in place to provide security for the (incident command post)."

This was one of the first times law-enforcement officials have publicly acknowledged the government orders to back down, drawing attention to a little-known detail about the high-profile confrontation.

Lavoy Finnicum was murdered..The assassins should be prosecuted.

I'm with you guys there !!!!  I saw the FILMS on the  MURDER  (as did the rest of the world) and NOBODY WOULD SAY, IT WAS NOT A MURDER !!!!!

BUT WHERE ARE THE REPORTS ON IT ??????   PRESIDENT TRUMP......!!!!!  ARE YOU LISTENING ??????

Sounds like Janet Reno at WACO with the Branch Dividians! That pig should have been hung for those killings along with others! YES, Kate Brown should join her family up in remote Alaska at Brown Town! 

Don't forget Ruby Ridge.......

Ruby Ridge & Waco happened under Bill Clinton's watch.  

Lavoy Finicum = Obama's watch.

Democrats should never be "in control" again... you are supposed to arrest the criminals, not murder their families.

 

an example of the "SS" in America

Senator Chaffetz, of Utah is correct in his statement regarding "trust in the BLM"- - -THERE IS NONE!  The BLM should NOT even exist, it is NOT authorized by the Constitution and, therefore, is an "illegal entity".  Hopefully, it will be one of the "gonezoes" obliterated by President Trump.  

This shows that many in law enforcement, especially the fed, have zero respect for the foundation of this country, and on the contrary they respect authoritarian govts ...while Bundy tried to educate them about the sole design responsibility for the FBI was for corruption in govt, most silently ignored or mocked him.

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

Trump's wiretap tweets raise risk of impeachment http://bv.ms/2mY1ueX  via @BV

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
