Burns Chronicles No 47
Robert “Rob” Seever
Outpost of Freedom
December 19, 2016
Rob Seever joined a start up militia in Fallon, Nevada, started by Corey Lequieu in January 2015. He had been a reserve deputy in Yamhill County and a clerk of a District Attorney in Washington, before moving to Nevada. He met Lequieu through Modern Militia Movement (MMM). Lequieu and Seever became close friends over the following months.
Lequieu had been active with Operation Mutual Aid (OMA), an organization created by Jerry Bruckhart and Ryan Payne. Many of those who participated in discussions appended “OMA” to their Facebook names and otherwise express their commitment to what OMA stood for.
Among those OMA supporters were Robert Beecher (the Demonization of Robert Beecher) and Kevin “KC” Massey (Update #1 on K. C. Massey). The government targeted both of them, and both are currently serving prison terms. It seems that the OMA membership list may have become a hit list for the FBI.
When I first spoke with Lequieu, he said that if Seever were an informant, he would have turned “after he came home from Burns, in December 2015”. However, after I provided Lequieu some of the information from the 1023 forms (CHS Reporting Documents), he realized that Seever had started informing much earlier. Seever’s first report was filed on November 22, 2015. He begins his first report with the text of a message that he sent to Ammon Bundy:
“Thanks for the update. I have been following what is going on with the Hammond’s and it is truly awful. I am a native Oregonian and a former reserve deputy (Yamhill County, OR); I am also a member of the OathKeepers. I will be contacting Sheriff Ward tomorrow and if necessary I am more than willing to travel to Burns. Enough is enough. Just give me the word and I’ll be there.
I appreciate your helping the Hammond’s and this is something I definitely want to be a part of if any help is needed. You are welcome to contact me at anytime.
God bless you,”
He follows that with:
I provided my name, address, and phone number.
xxxx I responded in this manner to Ammon Bundy due to our conversation about my being sent in to a situation, where Brian Rapolla would likely be present.
Brian Rapolla may possibly be Brandon Rapolla, OathKeepers. No explanation as to why he might be concerned about Rapolla’s presence.
His next report was filed on December 14, 2015. It indicates that he “has reported reliably in the past”, which would probably include more informing prior to the November 22 report.
CHS, who has reported reliably in the past, advised that Cory Lequieu told CHS that he would be taking his AR-15 with him when he goes to Oregon in support of the Hammonds.
Corey Lequieu is a convicted felon and Seever was fully aware of that fact.
