President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) faces an increasingly embattled confirmation process following reports she was involved in eco-terrorism and anti-government movements in the late 1980s.

The nominee, Tracy Stone-Manning, has denied that she was the subject of an investigation into a 1989 eco-terrorism incident involving tree-spiking. She has, however, admitted to sending an anonymous and threatening letter warning that trees in an Idaho forest had been spiked. And investigator from the 1989 case has come forward to say Stone-Manning was fully aware that she had been under investigation, leading Senate Republicans to demand Biden withdraw her nomination.
