Gianforte Praises President Trump’s Pardon of Dwight and Steven Hammond
WASHINGTON – Montana Congressman Greg Gianforte released the following statement in response to President Trump’s pardon of Dwight and Steven Hammond:
“President Trump’s decision to pardon Dwight and Steven Hammond is a win for property rights and our way of life. Overzealous bureaucrats from the Obama administration stretched the long arm of the federal government and unjustly targeted the Hammonds,” Gianforte said.
“I am grateful for President Trump’s actions and that the Hammonds are returning home to their family and ranch. I will continue working with President Trump to protect our Montana way of life from federal overreach so that miscarriages of justice, like what the Hammonds faced, do not happen again,” Gianforte said.
