ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS COMMENDS PROSECUTION IN BUNKERVILLE TRIALS AND CLAIMS HE IS NOT TAKING SIDES
JUDGE GLORIA NAVARRO AGREES WITH PROSECUTION TO LIMIT DEFENSE IN SECOND TRIAL OF BUNKERVILLE DEFENDANTS
She ruled to prevent the defense from questioning potential jurors about the US Constitution and to prevent the defendants from explaining why they showed up armed at the standoff as in exercise of their First and Second Amendment rights.
Some personalities arrived in the courtroom on Tuesday. Judicial activist Larry Klayman and former Congressman and federal prosecutor Bob Barr. Courtroom observer Andrea Parker noted that the judge and federal marshals were more "on their toes" and careful in their actions in the presence of the two men.
The slipshod actions of both Judge Navarro and federal marshals and their hostility towards the defendants and those supporting them in the courtroom seemed to be less so during the hours both men were present.
Parker has reported on and shown the tough approach in the name of "security" at the courthouse.
UPDATE JULY 12th
US Attorney General Jeff Sessions was in Las Vegas today and he "commended" the proseuction in the Bunkerville trials and added that he was "not taking sides" in the case.
