On November 20, 2018, the Idaho Statesman ran an article written by former U.S. Forest Service agent Pat Finnigan in response to an article written by Statesman reporter Nicole Blanchard. The first article was written after Nicole had spent the day at my home in Emmett, Idaho. Nicole and I talked openly about the matters she wanted to discuss. We talked about our families, about life since I have been home—we talked about “the movement” the Bundy family has supposedly started. We spoke about the actions of federal officers from the BLM, U.S. Forest Service, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Overall, Nicole reported accurately and fairly the information she was able to write about.
