Cliven Bundy suing Obama and Harry Reid to try and get himself out of jail: report
Anti-government rancher Cliven Bundy will file a lawsuit against President Barack Obama and numerous other officials on Tuesday, The Hill reported.
The lawsuit will seek to have Bundy’s indictment by a federal grand jury dismissed and for him to be released from solitary confinement.
It accuses not only Obama, but Sen. Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and federal District Court Judge Gloria Navarro of violating his constitutional rights, as well as Reid’s son, ex-Clark County Commission chair Rory Reid.
Bundy was indicted in February in connection with the 2014 standoff he instigated against federal officials for refusing to pay grazing fees for 20 years.
Another federal judge, Magistrate Judge Carl Hoffman Jr., rejected Bundy’s request in March to be released from jail, arguing that Bundy posed a danger to the public.
