Bishop & Westerman Letter to BLM Director 1-10-2018


January 10, 2018

Mr. Brian Steed

Acting Director

Bureau of Land Management

1849 C Street, N.W., Room 5665

Washington, D.C. 20240

Dear Mr. Steed:

On January 8, 2018, a federal judge denied prosecutors’ request to retry Nevada cattle

rancher Cliven Bundy and his supporters for their actions during a 2014 armed standoff with the

Bureau of Land Management (BLM).1 This ruling follows a December 20, 2017 decision by the

court to declare a mistrial based on federal prosecutors improperly withholding evidence from

the defense.2 The court’s decision follows numerous reports of serious and systemic misconduct

by the BLM officials involved in. the Bundy case. Of concern, a recent memo from a BLM

whistleblower to the Department of Justice (DOJ) appears to show that information regarding

extensive misconduct and unprofessional behavior by BLM officials involved in the Bundy case,

as well as other relevant information, was knowingly withheld from prosecutors.3 In this report,

the employee alleges a “widespread pattern of bad judgment, lack of discipline, incredible bias,

unprofessionalism and misconduct” exists among senior and supervisory BLM law enforcement

officers. 4
