On Tuesday, President Donald Trump pardoned the Oregon father and son who set fire to federal lands in protest over grazing rights for their cattle. Their crime became a rallying cry for right-wing militias, who saw their prosecution as federal government overreach.
By pardoning the Oregon ranchers, critics said, Trump was sending a dangerous signal and emboldening right-wing militias.
On Wednesday, the brothers flew home—on a private jet “owned by Lucas Oil Products dba Lucas Cattle Co,” reported JJ MacNab on Twitter.
“According to one of the 3%ers involved in the Malheur takeover, Forrest Lucas (Protect the Harvest) provided material support to the militants,” she continued.
