Podesta Email: "And Then The Bundys Showed Up"

In the pile of emails released by Wikileaks, there was one from American Progress Action to Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta that contained a brief reference to the Bundys.

The email address sent Podesta an email on January 11, 2016 with the subject line: And then the Bundys showed up.

The text of the email read as follows:

After years of conflict, residents of Harney County, Oregon had finally begun to rebuild ties between ranchers and the federal government. Then the Bundys showed up. And, President Obama is leaving a seat open for shooting victims at tomorrow’s State of the Union address. In case you missed it, gun violence survivors speak out in this powerful video (editor’s note: tissues recommended).Additionally, there was a list of articles linked to Think Progress and at the top of the list was one titled How The Bundy Standoff Could Screw Over Ranchers .

The article has been removed and has not been archived.

Keep in mind, this email was sent less than 2 weeks before Oregon State Troopers, alongside the FBI shot and killed LaVoy Finicum, also a rancher who stood alongside the Bundys at Bundy Ranch in Bunkersville in 2014 and at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Oregon in late 2015 and 2016.

This may also be insightful since we know from texts and emails that the White House, at the time, was in communication with the Oregon governor and helping to orchestrate the takedown of men who were simply exercising their constitutional rights, even to the point of killing one of them.

And the Uranium 1 claim is on the Bundy grazing territory adjacent the Bundy ranch.

No, not really weird. Unethical, illegal, those two words seem to fit better.

I hope you keep covering this Joe. It seems the MSM has long forgotten about this shady deal which also involves McCuke.

And Harry Reid as well had to be involved.
