Rep. Steve Stockman
The ‘Lectric Law Library
The following statement with attachments was issued by Texas freshman Congresman Steve Stockman regarding a mysterious fax message his office received on April 19, 1995, just as a bomb exploded at the Alfred P. Murrah federal office building in Oklahoma City.
An attachment consists of a statement by an FBI spokesman that the Congressman’s office acted properly in their handling of the fax. Also attached is a memorandum Stockman sent to Attorney General Janet Reno a month before the bombing inquiring about possible planned raids on “citizen’s militias.” In the memo, Stockman questioned the advisability and legality of the possible planned raids, suggesting that “a bloody fiasco like Waco” could result.
