Despite much of the media attention surrounding Cliven Bundy and the BLM having died down quite a bit, the legalities on the matter are still very much a concern. In order to combat the government – who is undoubtedly agitated from their public defeat – the Bundy family has recently announced the creation of the legal “dream team” in order to settle the conflict once and for all.
During a recent radio interview, Ammon Bundy (Cliven’s son) recently came on to explain their efforts and what exactly they aim to do. You may remember Ammon from another video heavily reported on where the BLM tased a man on several occasions during a heated exchange between the BLM and Bundy supporters – that someone who got tased, was Ammon.
It appears as though the Bundy family has thought this out as Ammon describes, “We don’t intend to sue the U.S. government for money, because the American people would have to pick up the tab. We intend to sue to make things right and expose the truth. The Governor of the State of Nevada, as well as the Sheriff of Clarke County should be the ones to step forward to provide legal and law enforcement protection, and they have refused. We now have no choice but to take the proper legal course of action.”
On top of this, Attorney Larry Klayman of FreedomWatchUSA.org has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in order to help shed some light onto just what happened behind the scenes of the BLM. According to Guerilla Media Network, “The FOIA request which was submitted to the Bureau of Land Management, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, and the Department of Justice specifically requests all documents which will reveal the truth about what has occurred and is occurring in matters relating to Cliven Bundy, his ranch, his family and his supporters.”
What do you guys think – will Bundy have any success with this, or will the government (under the current administration) stonewall as it always does after conducting illegal activity? Let us know in the comments below.
