Republicans demand Biden withdraw Tracy Stone-Manning as BLM nominee over eco-terrorist involvement

Republicans are demanding that Joe Biden withdraw his whack-a-doodle nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management over her involvement with eco-terrorists in the 1980s.

Tracy Stone-Manning is coming under fire for her role in a tree-spiking, which involves deliberately sabotaging trees to place loggers in harms’ way.

A federal investigator who probed the incident is now coming forward to join Republicans in accusing Stone-Manning of lying to the Senate about her past.

Republicans say “extremism” and lies disqualify nominee

All Republicans on the Senate Energy Committee Wednesday sent a letter asking the Biden administration to withdraw her nomination, saying her “extremism” and subsequent lies should disqualify her.

In her written questionnaire to the Senate, Stone-Manning denied having ever been involved in tree-spiking or being the target of a criminal investigation, but those both appear to be lies.

Michael Merkley, a retired federal investigator who probed a 1989 tree spiking, told the Senate Energy Committee in a letter that Stone-Manning knew she was under investigation.

Stone-Manning was involved at the time with an extreme environmentalist group, Earth First!, which popularized tree spiking.  At the time, Merkley described her as “extremely difficult to work with,” the “nastiest of the suspects” and “vulgar, antagonistic, and extremely anti-government.”

As part of a 1993 immunity deal, Stone-Manning testified that she sent an anonymous, threatening letter to the Forest Service in 1989 warning the “assholes” that trees in Clearwater National Forest had been spiked and labeled.

WH standing by nominee

Senator John Barrasso (R-Wy.) said that Merkley’s letter “confirms that Tracy Stone-Manning lied to the committee that she was never a target of an investigation,” adding, “President Biden must withdraw her nomination and if he does not, the Senate must vote it down.”

The White House is circling the wagons behind Stone-Manning, however.

“Tracy Stone-Manning is a dedicated public servant who has years of experience and a proven track record of finding solutions and common ground when it comes to our public lands and waters. She is exceptionally qualified to be the next Director of the Bureau of Land Management,” the White House said.

It’s not just Republicans who are opposing her. President Obama’s head of the BLM, Bob Abbey, has said that Stone-Manning is unfit as well.

To advance, Stone-Manning will need all Democrats on the committee backing her.

  6. on the subject above ( instead of those fantastic work at home millionaires !! ) , biden will handle the Republican feedback one way, and one way ONLY. First he will check to see what PRESIDENT TRUMP thinks …. then he will react in the OPPOSITE WAY.

    That’s really all he considers when he makes a decision — well, perhaps he does a coin toss at times … but that would be a rare exception.
