Cliven Bundy Lawsuit Against Obama Demands $50 Million, Get Out Of Jail Free Card, And A Pony

This copy of the Constitution came in a box of cereal


Welfare rancher and dipshit militia icon Cliven Bundy upped his legal game Tuesday, filing a lawsuit naming Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro, the federal judge in his Nevada criminal case, as defendants. Among other things, Bundy wants immediate release from prison, all charges against him dropped, $50 million in damages, and perhaps a shrubbery. At the very least, Bundy wants to be represented by wingnut lawyer (and Wonkette frenemy) Larry Klayman, and to have Navarro removed from the case because she’s incredibly biased against him:
“In short, defendant Navarro has shown her true intentions and bias and prejudice, rising to the level of denying Sixth Amendment right of counsel and to a speedy trial to plaintiff Bundy, following the ‘marching orders’ of her benefactors, defendants Harry Reid and Obama,” attorney Joel Hansen alleges in the complaint.

Navarro refused to grant Klayman permission to represent Bundy because Klayman currently faces disciplinary proceedings by the Washington DC Bar in an ethics case. The lawsuit paints that refusal as evidence that Navarro refuses to let Bundy mount an adequate defense. We’d say any judge who prevents Klayman from representing someone is actually doing the defendant a favor.


When Hansen handed Navarro the lawsuit Tuesday he asked Navarro to remove herself from Bundy’s criminal case, since she’s named as a defendant in the lawsuit. Navarro didn’t quite buy that claim:
The judge responded that case law doesn’t let a defendant create such a scenario.
But Navarro invited Hansen to try to identify whether her work as a prosecutor in the Clark County district attorney’s office before she was nominated to the federal bench created for her a conflict in the Bundy case. She set a May 25 date to rule whether she’ll step aside.

1. yeah sorry Cliven,

There is no law that lets people hand pick their judges for their criminal trials. otherwise everyone would pick their mommy. I love that the judge basically told them to prove there is a conflict, knowing damn well none exists, so she's going to let them humiliate themselves in open court lol

4. The judge basically told Hansen to "bring it on" if he thought she had a conflict.

This will result in a major smack down for Hansen.

8. Are these right-wing terrorist clowns related to Ted Bundy?

Or, are "clowns" holding high government offices, which control international industry, working to keep the stupid, terrorist newsworthy because of their name?

2. Someone refresh my memories - Isn't this the guy who hated government and all its trappings

Now he wants the courts to protect those rights he claims are being violated.

9. Cliven has some reality issues going.

 

Looks like he is trying to live a Character out of a Zane Grey pocket novel. Or maybe Roy Rogers. And yes,the fellow is the real thing and the same for his family. Yes they are living in White Theocracy Bubble and be damn if you question anything they spew for their mouths.
