Dear Attorney General Sessions:

Recently 53 current and former members of the Idaho Legislature wrote to you expressing

serious concerns about the treatment of four Idaho residents in cases related to “The Bunkerville

Stand Off’ trials . Specifically , the legislators are concerned about the decision of the U .S.

Attorney for the District of Nevada to try Eric Parker and 0. Scott Drexler for a third time . They

raise legitimate doubts about whether a third trial is in the best interest of justice or the American


The failure to secure guilty verdicts in two different trials with two different juries should serve

as evidence of the weakness of the government’s case and should be taken into account as a third

trial is contemplated. There is a strong possibility that a miscarriage of justice is being


The letter also expresses concerns about th e treatment ofldaho residents Todd Engel and

Ammon Bundy. I encourage you to revie w the treatment of Mr. Engle and Mr. Bundy and take

the appropriate steps to ensure that they are treated fairly.

As a former U.S. Attorney you are personally familiar with the many factors a U. S. Attorney

must weigh in deciding whether or not to bring a case to trial. Your background provides you

with unique insight , which is why I wanted to bring this letter to your attention.

I urge you to carefully examine the impo rtant issues raised in this letter and provide a response in

a timely manner.
