    Trump pardons ranchers in case that inspired 2016 occupation

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has pardoned two ranchers whose case sparked the armed occupation of a national wildlife refuge in Oregon.
    Dwight and Steven Hammond were convicted in 2012 of intentionally and maliciously setting fires on public lands. The arson crime carried a minimum prison sentence of five years, but a sympathetic federal judge, on his last day before retirement, decided the penalty was too stiff and gave the father and son much lighter prison terms.
    Prosecutors won an appeal and the Hammonds were resentenced in October 2015 to serve the mandatory minimum.


    The decision sparked a protest from Ammon Bundy and dozens of others, who occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near the Hammond ranch in southeastern Oregon from Jan. 2 to Feb. 11, 2016, complaining the Hammonds were victims of federal overreach.
    The armed occupiers changed the refuge’s name to the Harney County

    A pardon is probably a good thing. No real reason to let a sore fester. Now it will go away. i don't agree with the issue but it isn't worth getting all puffed up about.
    Democrats are a clear and present danger to our democracy and our society.

    It was all a set up by BLM and several smooth federal prosecutors.
