Cliven Bundy supporter pleads guilty to threatening federal official

An out-of-state supporter of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has pleaded guilty in a federal court in Pennsylvania to making threats against a Bureau of Land Management enforcement official during Bundy’s 2014 standoff against federal officials over land grazing rights.

Some Bundy supporters, as well as Bundy himself, wonder whether this is the first in a series of legal moves the federal government might take against the rancher, whose so-called citizen militia challenged BLM officials in an armed face-off last April.

Will Michael, 24, pleaded guilty this week to threatening a federal law enforcement official as well as making interstate communication threats.

A profanity-laced phone message left for Mike Roop, the chief BLM ranger for Washington and Oregon, claimed, “We’re going to kill you,” according to federal court documents. Officials say it was one of 500 threatening messages Roop received.

  3. There's no proof he was a "bundy supporter". Anyone can make a phone call.

    Just like federal agents who proclaim they are being 'threatened' when met with non-compliance.
    We are conditioned to bow to tyranny.
