And the plot thickens! Lorri Anderson reported on January 10 that the Idaho III% engaged the FBI in Burns, Oregon concerning the standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge with very calming effect on the situation and very positive results. Following that engagement, Brandon Curtiss of Idaho III% sat down with Pete Santilli for a one on one interview. During that interview, he dropped a bombshell that there is an eyewitness who claims to have seen a member of the Bureau of Land Management light the fire that the Hammonds responded to with their own backfire to preserve property, and which they were subsequently imprisoned not once, but twice. The event was said to have been caused by a lightning strike.
“We asked the FBI to dig in and investigate the fraud the prosecution has done here in this case,” Curtiss said. “There’s an eyewitness that saw the BLM light a fire behind the Hammond Ranch.” Pick up the video around 11:40.
“That witness came forward to us and actually gave us an audio affidavit and told us his account,” added Curtiss. “The prosecuting attorney actually interviewed him before… never recalled him to come back and never disclosed that to the defense.”
