The FBI botched the case so badly, the federal judge just dropped all the charges against Cliven Bundy and three others related to the ranch standoff.

 

Did we get our land and our grazing fees back yet, or did a rag tag bunch of farmers beat the federal government?

Cows still there?

Cliven sold 400 head from prison.  Government got none of the proceeds.  Rest are still grazing in the bunkerville plot, AFAIK

Now that harry Reid is out of office and those  solar panels aren't as lucrative, the government seems less concerned with getting those cattle off my land

"Cliven Bundy standoff case thrown out in another stunning blow to government"

A federal judge Monday threw out criminal charges against Nevada cattleman Cliven Bundy, his two sons and a co-defendant in the 2014 Bunkerville standoff, citing "flagrant misconduct" by prosecutors and the FBI in not disclosing evidence to the defense before and during trial.
"The government's conduct in this case was indeed outrageous," U.S. District Judge Gloria M. Navarro ruled. "There has been flagrant misconduct, substantial prejudice and no lesser remedy is sufficient."
The judge issued her ruling before a packed courtroom with nearly 100 spectators, as more than a dozen other spectators had to wait outside the courtroom doors. As Navarro dismissed the case, Cliven Bundy's lawyer put his arm around his client.
The judge found prosecutors engaged in a "deliberate attempt to mislead" and made several misrepresentations to both the defense and the court about evidence relating to a surveillance camera and snipers outside the Bundy ranch in early April 2014, as well as threat assessments made in the case.
"The court is troubled by the prosecution's failure to look beyond the FBI file," Navarro said.
She said she "seriously questions" that the FBI "inexplicably placed'' but "perhaps hid" a tactical operations log that referred to the presence of snipers outside the Bundy residence on a "thumb drive inside a vehicle for three years,'' when the government has had four years to prepare the case.
"The court has found that a universal sense of justice has been violated,'' Navarro said.
The judge found it especially egregious that the prosecutors chose not to share documents that the defendants specially asked for in pretrial motions, and "grossly shocking'' that the prosecutors claimed they weren't aware the material would assist the defendants in their defense.
"The government was well aware of theories of self defense, provocation and intimidation,'' Navarro said. "Here the prosecution has minimized the extent of prosecutorial misconduct.''

All the g-men involved, prosecutors and LE agents alike, will just shrug their shoulders and move on to their next victim. This **** will stop only when they lose their jobs and benefits in addition to being jailed among the general population.

This was a big trend during the last Administration.

 

Lot of their cases including some that were bumped up to the Supreme Court were thrown out due to gross prosecutorial misconduct.

 

Andrew Weissmann on Mueller's team was infamous for it.

 

If the facts did not support the case they just made stuff up and smeared the defendant. They were more concerned with political grand standing and punishing enemies than upholding the law.
