In a press release, Assemblywoman Michele Fiore claims that FBI agents in Oregon have been posing as militia amidst the Oregon standoff at the wildlife refuge. Fiore and the Coalition of Western States have released a statement indicating that Chris Briels, the Burns Fire Chief since 1984, is so upset over the development that he has resigned. The former fire chief’s verbal statement indicates that he actually resigned over the way the judge treated him after he discovered the undercover FBI agents.
Former Fire Chief Chris Briels stood next to Ammon Bundy, the leader of the group that has occupied Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, when he announced his resignation, according to KATU News. Briels is a member of the Community Committee for Public Safety, a local group that plans to work to reclaim local rancher’s land rights when the protesters eventually leave the wildlife refuge.
