Bishop, Westerman Letter to BLM Acting Director


WASHINGTON, D.C., January 10, 2018 - TO: Acting Director Brian Steed

FROM: Chairman Rob Bishop, Chairman Bruce Westerman

Dear Mr. Steed;

On January 8, 2018, a federal judge denied prosecutors' request to retry Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy and his supporters for their actions during a 2014 armed standoff with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), This ruling follows a December 20, 2017 decision by the court to declare a mistrial based on federal prosecutors improperly withholding evidence from the defense. The court's decision follows numerous reports of serious and systemic misconduct by the BLM official involved in the Bundy case.
