So much for Double Jeopardy - and the US Constitution.
As AZCentral.com reported three weeks agos, Navarro cited five key pieces of information that prosecutors did not disclose: records about surveillance and snipers at the Bundy Ranch; unredacted FBI logs about activity at the ranch in the days around the standoff; threat assessments about the Bundys dating to 2012; and internal affairs reports about the BLM.
Navarro methodically laid out her reasoning for about an hour, citing legal standards and case law, before delivering her ruling.
She said the evidence that was withheld could have been favorable to the accused and could have affected the outcome of the case.
Navarro stopped short of dismissing charges against the four men. It is unclear whether the case will be retried because Navarro did not rule whether the mistrial was with or without prejudice.
Navarro is considering dismissing the case “with prejudice” and blocking prosecutors from retrying the case. Her decision will come Jan. 8, according to The New York Times.
“There were approximately 3,000 pages that were provided to us only after we started trial,” Bundy lawyer Bret D. Whipple told TheNYT.Navarro had set another hearing for January and had tentatively scheduled a new trial to begin Feb. 26..
“I personally have never seen anything like this, especially in a case of such importance.”
And now, as Reuters reports, she has made her decision.
U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro cited multiple willful evidence violations by prosecutors in dropping the case, saying they prevented a fair trial and amounted to prosecutorial misconduct.
It is now clear that Cliven Bundy's son's opening statement:
"The indictment and grand jury testimony is full of lies. Truth has been blocked in previous trials.Has been entirely vindicated.
Listen closely - we will try to get you the truth. The truth will set me free and I’m counting on you to help me see that."
"They want the water, they want the water, they want the water." Much of this began with the feds putting a fence illegally around private water on private property. If they would have removed the feds fence they knew they would go to ass rape prison despite the fact that they state had already told the feds to take it down, the feds refused. There is a whole chain of events that people don't know about here and water grabbing is a big issue here. They are doing this all over the west and ranchers are in their way.
In Montana they used the Indians as an excuse (Flathead Lake area). In Washington they are trying to make people pay for enormously expensive water surveys to drill a well on their own land. In California they used drought. They are after NV and AZ too. This all comes together and it has to be exposed.
Sometimes...the good guys win one against the devils. Sometimes. This isn't over. The govt will MAKE SURE IT ISN'T OVER. Until they are dead or in jail on trumped up charges with paid liars to get them convicted. Watch for a change of venue to a different jurisdiction, where a satanic asshat will go along to put the christian family down for good and all.
