Oregon: FBI Agent Indicted on Charges in 2016 Shooting Death of Levoy Finicum

Oregon: The US Department of Justice has accused an FBI agent of lying about firing at Robert “LaVoy” Finicum last year as police arrested the leaders of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation.  The agent faces charges of making a false statement with intent to obstruct justice, which is a sanitized way of saying he lied when he denied shooting at Finicum’s SUV without provocation. [Note how the news story omits the fact that there was no warant for Finicum’s arrest and, therefore, there was no justificaton for a road block in the first place, there were snipers in place, and the event was video recorded by an FBI drone that followed Finicum’s vehicle long before reaching the blockade, all of which suggests the shooting was planned in advance. Couple that with the fact that the FBI fired at the car without provocation, and you have compelling evidence of a classic ambush. None of that is mentioned, only that one, lone agent lied about when he fired his weapon and how everyone else on the ambush team deserves to be congratulated for their outstanding service.] –GEG

An FBI agent has been indicted on federal accusations that he lied about firing at Robert “LaVoy” Finicum last year as police arrested the leaders of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation.

The agent will face allegations of making a false statement with intent to obstruct justice, according to sources familiar with the case.

The indictment stems from a more than yearlong investigation by the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Justice. The agent will be identified when he’s summoned to appear in U.S. District Court in Portland at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Investigators said a member of the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team fired at Finicum as his 2015 Dodge pickup truck crashed into a snow bank at a roadblock on U.S. 395. Finicum had just sped away from a surprise traffic stop on the rural highway as the occupation leaders traveled off the refuge to a community meeting Jan. 26, 2016.

Gavin Newsom Plans To Buy All California Real Estate Foreclosures

January 14, 2021 Matt Aitchison 2

Matt Aitchison says a new law in California, SB 1079, will result in the State entering the real-estate-foreclosed home business, which essentially removes competition from investors, and could ultimately socialize real estate as a whole. He warns that this policy may spread to other Democrat-run sates.

First of all LaVoy spelled his name capitalizing the letter “V” in his name. Secondly, LaVoy’s murder by the FBI was premeditated by the FBI at least 23 days before the act. Butch Eaton, Harney County resident, went with Ammon & Ryan Bundy and LaVoy Finicum to the Malheur Refuge on the first day of the standoff, 2 January 2016. He decided not to participate in the standoff, so he walked home. The very next day two FBI agents came to his home and interrogated him about LaVoy’s presence at the Refuge. These FBI agents were specifically interested in LaVoy’s… Read more »

This was an out and out cold-blooded murder and every one of the participants need to be in prison for a very long time. This Gestapo crap needs to stop before the people put a stop to them.
