[Ed. – We looked at this fellow, Bevan Cooney, here. Breitbart’s report makes it clear this was for Cooney’s safety. Sheds an interesting light on the whole tribal bonds case Cooney was convicted in; one of the first questions would be if Judge Ronnie Adams, who initially vacated Devon Archer’s conviction and seemed determined to keep this from getting near Hunter Biden, was under, um, pressure.]
On Tuesday, several days after emails Cooney provided to Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer and journalist Matthew Tyrmand became public, federal agents moved him from his cell to protect him. Tyrmand, who is in contact with members of Cooney’s family, told Breitbart News that Cooney was moved from his cell in a federal prison in Oregon around 11:00 a.m. local time on Tuesday. Tyrmand said that Cooney spoke with family members multiple times on Tuesday, which he said is “much more than usual.”
“Bevan could sense that things had changed with the rise in visibility of his story,” Tyrmand said.
Cooney’s family stressed to Tyrmand they are “extremely concerned given the nervousness gleaned from Bevan’s reaction this morning and they would appreciate a sign from the powers that be that Bevan is in protective custody.” It is unclear where Cooney has been moved to, and in whose custody he currently is.
