Feds Drops All Charges Against Pete Santilli in Oregon Malheur Case

(Before It's News)

For one, I’m very happy to discover the news that the charges against alternative media reporter Pete Santilli in the Oregon Malheur Wildlife Reserve case have been dropped.
KOIN reports:

In a filing on Tuesday, US Attorney Billy J. Williams said prosecutors decided not to pursue charges against Santilli because of “this Court’s pretrial evidentiary rulings excluding evidence against” him.

The charges were dismissed without prejudice, which means it is as though the action had never been filed.

“It’s been our position since the beginning that Pete had innocent intentions here,” Santilli’s lawyer Tom Coan told KOIN 6 News. “He never encouraged anyone to go out and stay at the refuge.”
 

The Las Vegas Review and Journal adds:

 

The dismissal came at the request of federal prosecutors in Portland who acknowledged in court papers that they no longer had enough evidence to pursue their case against conservative radio talk show host Pete Santilli. Prosecutors cited rulings that barred them from presenting some of their evidence.
 

“Based upon this Court’s pretrial evidentiary rulings excluding evidence against Santilli (ECF No. 1171), the government has decided that the interests of justice do not support further pursuit of these charges against Santilli,” wrote US Attorney Billy J. Williams.

Awww, their evidence wasn’t admitted? Poor babies. Perhaps, they should try acknowledging who is actually committing the crimes on land that, according the Constitution, belongs to the people of the State of Oregon.

However, this does not mean that Santilli is completely off the hook just yet. He is being transported to Nevada where he is facing trumped up charges from the 2014 Bundy Ranch siege in Bunkerville, Nevada.

“He looks forward to focusing 100 percent of his time defending the charges here in Nevada,” Santilli attorney Chris Rasmussen said Tuesday.

Ammon Bundy’s former attorney Mike Arnold added that he believes the trial on what he refers to as “thought crimes” will be a long one.

“We don’t have thought crimes in America. You need, typically, overt acts to accompany speech in order to make it past First Amendment muster,” Arnold said. “In this case, the government is claiming that the possession of firearms on the property was such an overt act and the protesters are presumably going to say, ‘you know, we have a right to open carry.’”

Frankly, the entire federal case is a lot of unconstitutional trumped up charges not only against Santilli, but everyone involved. The feds attacked Santilli’s freedom of the press and many protesters freedom of speech in Nevada and in Oregon. Furthermore, they continue to coverup their unconstitutional claims to the land in western states and through the union.

  • Pete Santilli will go to prison for A LONG TIME!

    • The criminal justice system s corrupt and will never serve the people or the constitution.

  • glad to here the charges dropped . i cant figure out why we are willing to send these patriots to jail for doing no more than their constitutional right . yes read it sometime its our right the goverment is under the people not the backassward way they try to put on. now the next news i would like to see is the people responsable for lavoys murder brough to justis and made accountable, a few trillion to the family suvivers would be nice dont you think.

  • Pete’s charges were dropped almost a month ago and he’s been in Nevada, again denied pre-trial release since then. Meanwhile, check out what happened in the Bundy case TODAY /alternative/2016/10/bundy-trial-ammon-michele-fiore-brandon-curtis-on-the-stand-judge-brown-trying-to-stifle-defense-again-3421455.html

    • Right! It’s doubtful Pete will EVER get off. We need to be cognitive that the America that we knew a couple of decades ago is gone. Reminds me of Germany in the late 1930′s. (No, I’m not that old but I’ve read about it!)

  • Pete is still in jail in Vegas, waiting for his trial on the Bundy incident.

  • He is a CIA agent who set up Lavoy Finnicum of course they will drop the charges they filed just to cover his a$$ :idea:

    • You’re an idiot!
