Cliven Bundy in bizarre lawsuit against President Obama
Bundy claims President Obama wants to take his land.
The suit, which names Sen. Harry Reid (R-NV), his son, Rory, U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro and President Obama as defendants, calls for Bundy to be released from federal custody and awarded $50 million in damages.
In the complaint, Bundy alleges Reid deployed “the equivalent of federal storm-troopers” to meet Bundy’s “peaceful cowboys” defending their grazing rights on public lands. The suit states the “invasion and armed assault” was intended to remove Bundy so Reid and his son could profit off the sale of the land to buyer “reported to be communist Chinese.”
The complaint also suggests Navarro should recuse herself from the Nevada case, in part because “she is a Latino activist,” and Larry Klayman, the conservative attorney who filed the lawsuit on Bundy’s behalf, also represents Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who rose to infamy by championing aggressive border patrol by local law enforcement.
