Oregon militant accuses feds of committing ‘works of the devil’ in $666 billion lawsuit

Published

on

Shawna Cox, who was arrested last month during the militant takeover at a federal reserve in Oregon, sued federal officials on Wednesday, accusing them of victimizing herself and her compatriots.

This story has been updated. Please see below.

“I am asking for criminal and civil penalties for the perpetrators that subjected me and my witnesses to the crimes I have identified herein,” the lawsuit stated. “I Claim I and the others involved in these actions have suffered damages from the works of the devil in excess of $666,666,666,666.66.”

Cox makes reference in the suit to her current indictment on federal conspiracy charges following her Jan. 26 arrest, stating that she intends to ask jurors to pursue criminal and civil charges against state and federal officials who were “involved in the ambush that attempted to execute myself and others and executed Lavoy Finicum.”

She was released from jail on Feb. 1 and has claimed that police murdered Finicum. However, the FBI later released footage showing Finicum reaching for a weapon twice before being shot and killed.

Her suit also accuses Harney County Sheriff David Ward and state Sen. Cliff Bentz (R) of being “directly involved in terrorizing the people of Harney County with calling out their thugs and making the show of force” instead of allowing a grand jury to hear the case concerning Cox and her fellow militants.

Update, 10:37 p.m. EST: KATU-TV reported that Cox’s lawsuit was dismissed after a judge said her claims were “not cognizable in this criminal proceeding and will not be addressed in this case.”

The lawsuit can be read in its entirety below.

Published

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) has put aside the urgency of a global pandemic and urgency to help unemployed Americans and turned to focus instead on investigating a conspiracy he helped cook up over former Vice President Joe Biden and Ukraine. The so-called "investigation" came after President Donald Trump was impeached for trying to bribe Ukraine to come up with "dirt" on Biden.

Johnson and House colleague Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) were both caught receiving documents from a pro-Russia and Kremlin-linked Ukrainian official named Andrii Derkach.
