Another trial for Malheur Refuge standoff has ended. This was for some of the supporting cast, so to speak. Unlike the Bundys, who received non-guilty on all charges, this jury returned some guilty verdicts. More at:

Bringing this back out of the dustbin because Trump just pardoned the Hammonds, who were part of the original catalyst for the Malheur standoff.

The comment from Huckabee Sanders that the Hammonds had the support from local law enforcement seems to neglect the part where they acted aggressively towards federal employees up to and including death threats. So much winning!

Beyond the specifics of this particular case, I am most concerned about how this will embolden the fringe groups that want to reduce protections for public lands, usually for increased access for extractive industries for short term gain.

All part of Putin's plan to destabilize the US.
