BUNDY RANCH: Prosecutors Face More Allegations
In Cover-up Of BLM Agent Dan Love Misconduct
by Deb Jordan
(Pete Santilli Show) – BLM Special Agent In Charge [SAC] Daniel P. Love, hangs over the heads of Nevada Prosecutors like a rain cloud that follows them everywhere they go. SAC Love, who has been identified as the agent who was found guilty of misconduct after an investigation by the Inspector General’s Office, may have something else in his closet the Prosecutors kept hidden from the defense. It appears that in November of 2016 the internal affairs office at the BLM opened their own investigation on Mr. Love.
According to records, a memorandum from The US Department of The Interior dated November 2nd, 2016 and signed by the BLM Director of Law Enforcement Security Salvatore R. Lauro , was issued to SAC Love informing him of his immediate suspension from duty and directing him to turn in his uniforms, badges, and government issued firearms. Love was also stripped of his Law Enforcement Authority.
The suspended BLM Special Agent In Charge was being investigated internally for two extremely heinous acts.
The first offense on record was, that on more than one occasion Love ordered a subordinate to drive a government issued vehicle to run personal errands for Love, and have it washed and cleaned out. There have been some outside reports that the subordinate also found ancient indian artifacts in Love’s vehicle during this process, but the most egregious allegation was still to come.
After a raid on the Redd Family of Blanding, Utah, that also involved several other collectors of ancient indian artifacts in the surrounding area, Love demanded the Utah Department of The Interior Evidence Custodian to retrieve several of the artifacts from the evidence room so he could display them on his desk. The internal investigation also states that Love gave at least several BLM Agents and one private contractor “Moqui Marbles” to keep as a trophy after the 2006 raid he and FBI Special Agent Greg Bretzing called, Operation Cerberus.
This act was not only unlawful, but some would say a direct indication to how dark the soul of Daniel P. Love really is. Dr. James Redd, after being brutally assaulted and interrogated for hours by Daniel Paul Love, took his own life, as did the informant Ted Gardiner – who set the sting into motion, and one other victim also killed himself after the highly ridiculed militarized Operation Cerberus. Many Utah residents and elected officials still accuse Dan Love of bullying Dr. James Redd to death.
Odd that Agents Love and Bretzing chose to call their sting “Operation Cerberus after a successful Hitler directive during World War II” in which three trapped German Warships in the English Canal successfully out-thought and out-manuverd the English to get away. The German military would later call Operation Cerberus a “tactical victory (but) a strategic defeat” a ominous quote that would dictate the perception of Daniel P. Love and Greg Bretzing’s careers, for years to come.
According to a letter penned by Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz to the Office of The Inspector General, there are more questions raised by their investigation of SAC Love than answered. The letter indicates that Love not only threatened people in his office while demanding they lie during the investigation, but he also had an employee shred and destroy untold amounts of evidence in the form of documents and hard-drives containing internal emails the day before a congressional inquiry was to begin scrutinizing the office Love had now become in charge of. BLM Director Neil Kornze is suspected of giving Agent Love the “heads-up” before that investigation could take place, prompting him to destroy the most critical documents the IGO was looking for.
The United States Government has a long history of “covering up” for their Special Agent in Charge Daniel P. Love from 2006 to date, and that fact could not be made any clearer than by what is NOT being allowed to be entered as evidence and who is NOT allowed to be called to the stand, in the Case of USA vs Cliven Bundy et al —
Former Secret Service Agent Rand Stover turned BLM Agent, took the stand in early February during what the Press has dubbed “The Bundy Ranch Trials” in a feeble attempt to begin what would be a long line of BLM and FBI agents who ineffectively tried to become, “the Prosecution and Judge approved” stymied voice of Daniel P. Love. Because the Prosecution had hidden the facts surrounding the OIG investigation and pending Congressional inquiry, the defense was ill prepared to ask Agent Stover wether or not he too was involved in the investigations.
The record reflects Agent Stover was a vital participant in the scheme to help Dan Love insure the employment of a former US Marshal and their friend, Mark Jucha, to the BLM. Stover was in charge of the interviewing process that allowed only the top 10 applicants to interview for the job; Jucha was not among the top 10. Love, with help from Stover, suspended the rules of hiring to include the top 30 applicants and made it possible for Jucha to be interviewed and hired over those who were better qualified for the job. Stover would later admit that he followed the order of Daniel P. Love to expand the interview process to include Mark Jucha because after all, “Love was the Special Agent in Charge”
Since the Bundy Ranch trial began prosecutors and Judge Gloria Navarro have been accused of at least five incidents of prosecutorial misconduct linking them to with-holding evidence, that resulted in the Jury not hearing the facts surrounding the case; two of those directly involve the cover-up of the investigation of The Inspector General, and the United States Congress inquiry into the misconduct of Daniel P. Love to which he was eventually found guilty.
During the trial the revelation that co-defendant Gregory Burleson had once been a paid FBI informant and that two of his former handlers had taken the stand to testify for the prosecution, set off an explosion for motions to dismiss the case based on the fact Burleson and his attorney Terrance Jackson had been allowed to attend meetings with other c0-defendants and Cliven Bundy himself, where case strategy had been discussed. The motions were denied.
In a recent article by the intercept.com and reporting on a story out of Glendale, Colorado, the public was informed that FBI undercover agent “Charles Johnson” was arrested for impersonating a private investigator. Johnson alleged during his interrogation by Glendale Police, he had been hired by a journalist to harass community officials and the owner and of a piece of property the town needed to develop a entrainment district. After his arrest “Agent Johnson” was documented as having three separate I.D.’s on his person that indicated he was a resident in three different States, one of which was an address in Nashville Tennessee.
One business card he had in his possession bearing his name was that of the known fake media/documentary company called “Long Bow Productions” used by the FBI to infiltrate and record the Bundy family and other participants during the protest in 2014. During the first trial concerning USA vs Cliven Bundy et al, he took the stand under the assumed name “Charles Johnson” to testify for the government against defendants who had no clue he was under investigation in Colorado, for once again pretending to be something he was not.
In a must hear interview with Peter Boyles, the writer of the article Trevor Aaronson, said he had contacted the FBI DOJ if whether or not they had informed attorney’s the information about Charles Johnson’s arrest had been shared – The FBI never returned his call.
To date the BLM, the OIG, and Daniel P. Love admit there have been eight separate investigations by the OIG into Love’s conduct since Bundy Ranch, with only one of those investigations being made public.
Defendants in the Bundy case would like to know what information initiated those investigations, and if any of those investigations included his misconduct during the Bundy Ranch cattle confiscation and subsequent misconduct during the protest.
It will also be interesting to know what other information the prosecution has hidden under their skirts that should by all that is decent, require the Attorney General Jeff Sessions to dismiss this case.
