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.”

Published

on

Attorney for the president Rudy Giuliani gave a combative, belligerent and downright incoherent interview on CNN Thursday evening, raving about a ballooning scandal involving Donald Trump and Ukraine.

Giuliani and Trump have apparently been pressuring the country to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a probe that could help the president’s re-election campaign. That massive scandal had been unfurling on its own for months, but it blew up Thursday when multiple reports revealed that a mysteriously suppressed whistleblower complaint in the intelligence community reportedly concerns Trump’s conduct and the country of Ukraine.

Published

Legendary constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe explained the legality of President Donald Trump's claim to be above the law during a Thursday evening appearance on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.

The host played a notorious clip of Trump.

"I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters. Okay? It’s like incredible," Trump argued.

"And now he has gone beyond that," O'Donnell noted. "Now the president is sayin, 'I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot someone and I cannot be prosecuted for that crime. Or any crime.'"
