    Assistant federal public defender Rich Federico urged a panel from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday to ensure that Ammon Bundy and four co-defendants rights to due process and effective representation aren't jeopardized by their dual prosecutions in Oregon and Nevada. Federico began by citing a 1922 U.S. Supreme Court ruling which underscored that one person accused of crimes in two courts cannot be in two places at the same time. Though that case dealt with a person facing prosecution in federal and state courts, Federico told the panel that he couldn't find a similar case in...

Inspector General Michael Horowitz is leading the independent inquiry.

    PORTLAND — On Wednesday, a federal grand jury in Nevada indicted rancher Cliven Bundy for an armed standoff at his ranch in 2014.

The same indictment also charged Peter T. Santilli, host of a right-wing YouTube show. When the Nevada indictment came out, Santilli, like Bundy’s sons, sat in an Oregon jail, having been indicted earlier this month on felony charges due to...

Not one shot was fired by the Bundys or any of the people who took over the Oregon Wildlife Refuge either.

It was those who work for the state that fired on an unarmed LaVoy Finicum, murdering him in cold blood, and then...

    Political correctness has invaded our culture so thoroughly there are essentially two tiers of justice in this country.

If there is any media coverage, it will be...

    This is a shortened and edited version of FBI footage showing the joint FBI and Oregon State Police traffic stop and OSP officer-involved shooting of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. You’ll note that Finicum was shot by an Oregon State Police Trooper at relatively close range as he appeared to be reaching into his coat in a manner consistent with attempting to draw a handgun. Flash bangs were then deployed in an effort to get the other occupants of the vehicle to surrender.

    Clint Van Zandt served in the FBI for 25 years, including about six as the agency's chief hostage negotiator.
