Todd Engel Gives UPDATES on Wooten Memo #2
by Shari Dovale
Todd Engel continues to sit in a jail cell in Pahrump, Nevada.
He has led the fight to release the documents that will prove to the public how corrupt our Federal Justice system has become, and release him.
These documents are known as the “Wooten Memos”, and they come from BLM Special Agent Larry Wooten, who has attained whistle-blower status for coming forward to prove the allegations against the Bureau of Land Management and the prosecution.
After the first memo was released to the public, through Washington State Representative Matt Shea and Redoubt News, in December 2017, the case against rancher Cliven Bundy and his co-defendants was dismissed with prejudice by Judge Gloria Navarro.
However, only the four defendants that were in that tier had their charges dismissed. Later, the defendants in the final tier had their charges also thrown out, but the defendants previous to that time were not addressed. This includes the men that were coerced into taking plea deals.
Additionally, it includes 2 men that were wrongly convicted based on the misleading information by the prosecution. Greg Burleson was sentenced to over 65 years, which will amount to the rest of his life in prison for his stand in Bunkerville. Todd Engel, though convicted over a year ago, has not yet been sentenced. The prosecution is asking for 20 years in prison. His sentencing is scheduled for July 19th.
After the Wooten memo was released, Engel filed to have his case included in the dismissal. The prosecution, led by Steven Myhre, claimed that the information revealed by Wooten did not pertain to Engel, and then Myhre tried to claim Wooten was a liar and not truthful.
This caused Mr. Wooten to double-down and write a second memo that is said to contain so much damaging information that the prosecution is in a panic to keep it from the public. It is currently under very tight seal by the court.
This week, Engel gave updates that included information on the current motions to depose Larry Wooten in court and get his information on the record. He has also said that Greg Burleson, through his attorney, has joined with Engel’s motions. Judge Navarro has agreed to allow Burleson to come back to her courtroom for these motions.
Engel tells us that he feels Judge Navarro has too much at stake to allow Wooten to testify in a court. He has compelling arguments, explaining that the original indictment addresses the subject of the snipers, claiming that they were a figment of the defendants imagination and that they did not exist However, since they have been proven to have been there, this makes the indictment false on it’s face. Therefore, it is fraudulent.
Engel tells us that he believes Judge Navarro has few choices and that he believes she will release him and push the issue of Wooten’s information down the road to a civil court.
