Trump Campaign Official Arrested On Federal Charges Linked To Bundy Ranch

4 posts in this topic

FBI agents arrested Jerry DeLemus, co-chair of Veterans for Trump in New Hampshire, on Thursday following his indictment in connection with the 2014 Bundy Ranch standoff in Nevada, the New Hampshire Union Leader reported.

Federal charges against DeLemus included "conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States, threatening a federal law enforcement officer, attempting to impede or injure a federal law enforcement officer and several firearms charges," the newspaper reported.

Susan DeLemus, a state representative and fellow supporter of Donald Trump's presidential campaign, confirmed her husband's arrest to the newspaper. Trump announced that he was forming Veterans for Trump in July and named DeLemus among the co-chairs.

The standoff in Nevada two years ago came after federal officials said Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy allowed his cattle to graze on federal land for decades without paying grazing fees. Bundy invited hundreds of followers, many of them armed, to his ranch to push back against federal officers who were impounding his cattle.

I'm sure this was not politically motivated at all. :damned:

According to reports from both the New Hampshire Union Leader and the Portsmouth, NH, Patch, Jerry DeLemus, a Tea Party activist and husband of New Hampshire state Rep. Susan DeLemus, was arrested this morning in a home raid by the FBI on nine charges related to his participation in the 2014 standoff with federal officers at Cliven Bundy’s Nevada ranch. 

The charges include, according to the Union-Leader:

conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States, threatening a federal law enforcement officer, obstruction of justice, attempting to impede or injure a federal law enforcement officer and several firearms charges, according to court records.
