LAS VEGAS -- A dramatic development in the saga surrounding rancher Cliven Bundy, the FBI has entered the case.
The 8 News NOW I-Team has learned that FBI agents have started an investigation into the events surrounding a potentially deadly showdown one month ago.
It is one thing for Cliven Bundy and his supporters to square off against an assortment of Bureau of Land Management employees. It is quite another when the FBI enters the picture, and that is exactly what has happened.
The I-Team has confirmed that FBI agents have launched a formal investigation into alleged death threats, intimidation and possible weapons violations that culminated with a dangerous showdown on April 12, and the first people to be interviewed by FBI agents are Metro Police, starting with Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillispie.
Federal employees suspended their roundup of Cliven Bundy's cattle, following a confrontation outside the BLM compound near Bunkerville. At the urging of Metro Police, Bundy's cattle were released, but BLM's new director announced the matter wasn't over and would be resolved, one way or another. We now know what that means

How about investigating the BLM for killing Bundy’s cattle and destroying his property?
I hate our government. Hear that Obama, I hate the government.
It’s not over, said Harry Reid.
Well, we were wondering when the other shoe was going to drop.
Or investigating Reid and his son for being crooks?
If they’re investigating the Bundy supporters, they’re investigating the wrong ones.
Caught it on Drudge
I smell that varmint, Hopalong Harry Reid. This is his dirty work.
the I-team was the first (and I think only) to disclose that the order to go ahead and run baby calves to death and bury their mommas in open pits came straight from the White House. No doubt the FBI is there at the same invitation.
I heard an interview on Fox with one of the family members and they said someone tried to offer explosives to them and they told them to get lost. They definitely knew they were being setup.
Yeah, like that will happen. Our corrupt government has become a world-wide joke.
t is illegal to point loaded weapons at federal agents, and most people know what would happen, if a suspect pointed a gun at a Metro officer in the Las Vegas valley.
Yes we have corrupt government with absolute scum leading this country. Why not allow illegal mexicans to become legal citizens when our leaders behave like corrupt mexican officials? Sort of makes sense in absurd way
Looks like BLM’S Feudal Lord Reid is now dipping into the unlimited taxpayer piggy bank and buying some of Holder’s finest!
Already paid for, Reid’s Rustlers can’t be far behind - - - - .
The race is ON!
My guess is that Putin will conquer the entire Nation of Ukraine before Feudal Lord Reid puts his fellow Nevada Mormon Clive Bundy out of the Cattle Business.
I heard something about that too. Somebody was definitely trying to set them up.
You dare to question the Fatherland!
Harrys got to be taken into CUSTODY
The REWARD will be Increased Peace Of Mind!! and Continued Liberty!
HI HO SILVER!
Hopefully, Henry Bowman is watching intensely, taking notes.
You say it was Dirty Harry that made the suggestion?
Sounds like a plan. Hopalong Harry the Cattle Rustler. That cracks me up. LOL!
I was wondering when that was going to start.
Who could see this coming ?
Muslim Bombers? - Nothing to worry about.
Invite them to the White House.
Patriots armed with legal weapons?
DOMESTIC TERRORISTS !!
INVESTIGATE THEM !!
May it become a Household Name!!
we need to have fun Parodying these vile punks
Yup! Hopalong Harry is definitely at the top of the list of vile punks, IMHO.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
This admin is fascist and will punish dissent
Harry Reid’s media clowns are just rubbing themselves with glee. This article sounds absolutely giddy!
The FBI is about to murder a bunch of people. Since Ruby Ridge that is how their cases end...people being murdered by them.
You're not alone my FRiend!
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I don't add you to the list...
Nobody should be surprised at this.
Go Harry Reid! Mormon.
“death threats, intimidation and possible weapons violations”
Psychological projection is rampant in the federal
They’re running around in MRAPS, and THEY feel intimidated???
George Knapp investigating this is a very good reporter.
The shrill tone of this broadcast is pretty amazing —you’d think CITIZENS were kicking in the doors of 93-year-old police officers, smashing up all their stuff, then killing them “for brandishing”.
You’d think CITIZENS were surrounding churches full of kids of cops, then burning the whole structure down, finishing by raising a citizen flag atop the still-burning embers.
You’d think CITIZENS were targeting the skulls of cop moms holding babies, then blasting their brains out.
You’d think CITIZENS were stealing the ranches and cows of cops.
You’d think CITIZENS were buying thousands MRAPs for no reason, buying BILLIONS of bullets, again for no reason.
Their outrage really jumps out at you —I’m sure King George III genuinely felt wronged.
This is a great report on the ground from Dennis Michael Lynch:
Yep! And it is starting. Never forget that the FBI is now a bunch of criminals and murderers with badges. Some one,and probably a lot of someones is about to die.
We are living under a communists dictatorship and Americans are still ignorant. America is lost.
They will go after them one by one, split ‘em up, make them examples. Use the Patriot Act, make them terrorists, and make it very public as a warning to make sure no one does it again.
The ones they can’t get rid of loudly they will get rid of quietly, Stasi style.
You are right! I don’t like it but shit like this is what the majority of those who voted in 2008 and 2012 voted for.
And THIS is where OathKeepers needs to start being active.
Whether they were right or wrong to stand down once the rumor of “kinetic action” against the Bundy property started going around is still debatable.
However, once the Feddies start this kind of administrative action, obviously intended to increase the intimidation level, and almost certainly based on the actions of their own people acting as agents provocateur, it’s time for OK to put up or shut up. Their explicit reason for existing is to force the gov to live by the oath to abide by the constitution and serve the public, and punitive “investigations” are a serious abuse of their authority. The OKers in the ranks are going to have to start doing something if they’re to retain credibility.
Fox was the only news outlet which really was there covering this. They have backed off the story since Bundy made comments Fox distanced themselves from so the feds feel they have a green light. Anyone who supports Bundy is a racist, a bigot and a domestic terrorist according to them. The leftist media will cheer any killing on while eating popcorn.
Never, never, never, never talk either to a cop or to a member of the media, no matter what the enticement. Bundy fell into the trap.
