Rep. Cori Bush who reportedly was one of the BLM protesters who trespassed on the McCloskey’s property fumed over the couple’s recent pardon by Missouri Governor Mike Parson.
“Mark McCloskey is an absolute liar,” Bush raged while on CNN. “He has spat on my name. And because of that, his day will come.”

Missouri Gov. Mike Parson made good on his promise to grant pardon the couple.
The McCloskeys rose to viral fame when they brandished guns at racial justice protesters last year in an effort to protect their home.
McCloskeys’ lawyer Joel Schwartz said “Mark McCloskey has publicly stated that if he were involved in the same situation, he would have the exact same conduct. He believes that the pardon vindicates that conduct.”
