President Trump Pardons Oregon Ranchers

posted by 700WLW Digital Staff -

More pardons from President Trump.  There's word today that the president has pardoned two Oregon ranchers who became the inspiration for an armed occupation of a national wildlife refuge in 2016.  Four years before that Dwight Hammond and his son Steven were convicted of arson for setting a series of fires on their ranch that spread to federal land.  In confirming the pardons, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called the Hammonds devoted family men and respected contributors to their local community.  She noted that the evidence at their trial was "conflicting" and said they were more than deserving of presidential pardons.
