Hopefully you'd be able to give this maximum attention at your earliest convenience. Below, and attached, is a press release from Cyndi Steele concerning her husband attorney Edgar J. Steele's seemingly unlawful arrest. You will most likely find some very interesting questions and claims by Cyndi regarding her husband's unlawful entrapment by the FBI, BATFE, and local agencies. It's a typical one.
By the way, Edgar J. Steele was in the middle of writing a tell-all book in regard to the human sex slave trafficking operation taking place worldwide and the involvement of various family courts and state CPS departments nationwide. While writing this book, all of a sudden, an FBI informant/provocateur arrives at the Steele residence as "Larry the Plumber", who then robs them of approx. $45,000 in silver coins and plants a pipe-bomb under Cyndi Steele's car, which is then destroyed by the local bomb squad, thus destroying evidence, then acts as FBI informant claiming Steele hired him to kill his wife.

September 20, 2010 Press Conference
Regarding Cyndi Steele and the pipe bomb discovered under her car at Fastlane Quick Lube on June 15, 2010 and in a prepared statement, she made the following observations:
In her first public appearance since a bomb was found attached to the undercarriage of her car on June 15, Cyndi G. Steele said she is grateful to be alive; in spite of the fact that Larry Fairfax, the handyman turned bomber, tried to murder her and her mother.
Mrs. Steele says that she has been told by the FBI that there are still other accomplices of Mr. Fairfax who have not been arrested or charged with crimes and that she is afraid that the FBI is not doing its job, by failing to apprehend these criminals.
Mrs. Steele says that all she wants is the truth.
She invites the media to use its professional and unbiased journalism to vigorously investigate and report the truth regarding this case.
She asks if the media believes in the presumption of innocence instead of convicting people like her husband Edgar Steele in the Press before they are PROVEN guilty. She requests they ask the hard questions of both sides and not demonize the accused, at least until they are found guilty in a court of law or have admitted their own guilt.
She says Larry Fairfax is the one that is guilty and reminds reporters that he has admitted his guilt in his Plea Bargain Agreement.
Mrs. Steele points out that Mr. Fairfax is guilty of attempted murder by his own admission; thus, he is the Idaho Pipe Bomber. She says he is also a liar and a thief. She points out that her husband has never admitted guilt.
Mrs. Steele says she is standing by her husband since she knows he is innocent and gives several reasons why:
Edgar Steele has proclaimed his innocence from the very beginning.
The government has NOT presented any proof otherwise. And,
The evidence they have presented, such as the tapes, is flawed and untrustworthy.
On the other hand, the evidence shows Mr. Fairfax is a thief, a liar and an attempted murderer.
Mrs. Steele points out that Mr. Fairfax was in deep financial trouble in May, having just declared bankruptcy earlier this year. He had told Mrs. Steele that he was losing equipment which is needed in his business and was about to lose his house;
Mr. Fairfax told Mrs. Steele and her husband how desperately he needed money; which is one of the reasons why they continued to give him work;
On Nov. 21, 2009 Edgar Steele almost died from an aortic aneurism and it’s only by one of God’s miracles that he lived. Then over the next six months he had three other surgeries, the last of which was a nose aneurism that threatened his life again requiring another emergency surgery in May 2010.
According to Mrs. Steele, the pipes froze in her family home this past winter and Mr. Fairfax came into their lives as “Larry the Plumber” to fix the broken water pipes. While in a weakened state, Mr. Steele became increasingly more reliant upon Mr. Fairfax to help fix things at the Steele property. Mr. Fairfax became aware that the Steeles were using their out buildings as a place for safe keeping of their silver coins.
Because of Edgar’s weakened condition, Mr. Fairfax was able to steal $45,000 worth of silver coins from the Steeles.
As Mr. Fairfax cashed in those silver coins, he became scared that Edgar would catch him.
Thus, Mr. Fairfax had a motive to scheme up the murder-for-hire plot. By alerting the FBI of the plot, he could cover up his crimes by making it appear he was helping the FBI solve a much more serious crime.
One must keep in mind that Mr. Fairfax had been a DEA informant and had contacts in the government.
The FBI saw the opportunity to concoct a story to implicate Edgar because he has been so outspoken and effective in representing the politically incorrect.
At Mr. Fairfax’s Detention Hearing on June 20, 2010, it was said that Magistrate Candy Dale made a finding that he wasn’t “…completely forthcoming in his dealings with law enforcement and has subjected people to danger and can’t be trusted to be released.”
Mrs. Steele says that it is an outrage that the authorities continue to believe anything Mr. Fairfax has to say, especially since the most critical information he was covering up was placing a pipe-bomb on her car in his attempt to murder her and her mother.
Mr. Fairfax continues to lie by claiming he “…made the bomb in a way that it wouldn’t detonate.” Yet, it was lethal as stated by C. Todd Smith, a BATF&E agent, and the Coeur d’Alene Police Bomb Squad blew it up.
Mrs. Steele said: “I don’t get how the authorities can continue to claim Mr. Fairfax was out to save my life. When is placing a lethal bomb on someone’s car, for any reason, being out to save a life? No, this is attempted murder and the government has failed to charge him with attempted murder.”
Mrs. Steele said: “I still shake in fear when I think about the devastation that could have been caused if that bomb exploded. Not only to me and my mom, but to other family members, including my 2 year old granddaughter, our friends, and every person who was near my car as I drove through Oregon, Washington and Idaho in June.
Mrs. Steele said: “I still fear for our lives because Mr. Fairfax, as stated in his Plea Agreement, had an accomplice who went from Idaho to Oregon with him to check on the bomb under my car on May 31st; and the government still has not arrested or charged that person.”
Mrs. Steele asks, “Why was this other person, not Larry, the one who looked under my car for the bomb? Mr. Fairfax is the one who attached the bomb and would have known where to look. Why is the government relying on unreliable hearsay from this other person when it is coming through Larry Fairfax who has proven himself to be a liar?”
Mrs. Steele points out that Mr. Fairfax states in his Plea Agreement that he and this other person together, as co-conspirators, made a decision to assume that the bomb had fallen off of her car – “…you would think they wouldn’t have just assumed, but rather they would have made certain that the bomb was off my car if they wanted to then save lives?”
Mrs. Steele emphasizes the point by saying: “Did you get that? They decided that this lethal weapon of mass destruction was lying on the ground somewhere between Sagle, Idaho and Portland, Oregon, and the FBI did nothing about that.”
Mrs. Steele encourages the media and investigative reporters to find the answer to the question: Who is this person that went with Mr. Fairfax on May 31st to check on the bomb?
She wants to know: “Why hasn’t he been arrested and charged? Why is he still at large and allowed to be a danger to people?”
Since there is an indication the government knows the identity of this person, Mrs. Steele would like the media to ask the government the following questions:
Why hasn’t the government charged this other person as a co-conspirator since he/she helped Mr. Fairfax advance the criminal enterprise?
Why hasn’t the government arrested this person as a co-conspirator since he knows how to handle bombs, willingly participated in a scheme that involved attaching a bomb under a car, knew about the bomb on Mrs. Steele’s car in May and is a danger to the public.
Mrs. Steele points out that none of these issues has been addressed by the FBI and, in fact, they have completely ignored the public safety aspect of this case.
Mrs. Steele said: “Obviously, this co-conspirator was a part of the plot to murder me, which was also designed to do harm to the public --- what am I missing?”
Mrs. Steele pointed out that the bomb manufactured by Mr. Fairfax and placed under her vehicle could have blown up anyone, even the reporters at the Press Conference and their families.
Mrs. Steele said: “As if this isn’t bad enough, there is more. The FBI also identified two other accomplices to Mr. Fairfax who they said wanted to run me and my mother off the road.”
She said: “When the FBI first approached me on June 11, 2010 as we were at my mother’s house near Portland, they, the two FBI agents, said nothing about a bomb under my car.”
The two FBI agents said that some people wanted to kill Mrs. Steele and her mother by running them “off the road.”
Mrs. Steele wants to know: “Why aren’t those two co-conspirators being prosecuted by the government?”
To the investigative reporters who are present she asked: “Doesn’t anyone of you want to ask the government why those two people are not in jail right now under charges of attempted murder? And why are they still at large where they present a clear danger to our community?”
Mrs. Steele said: “oowkdjfkjdkfkjI’d like to ask the U.S. Prosecutor and the FBI: What does it take to get you to do your job?”
Mrs. Steele addressed the case against her Husband by saying: “I told you that I would explain why I believe my Ihusband did not participate in any murder-for-hire plots…
“that is because I know Edgar Steele better than anyone. I have been married to Ed over 25 years and we have had a long, loving, bonded and mutually inter-dependent relationship.
“I know what he is capable of-- I also know what he is not capable of and he is not capable of planning to murder anyone. He would lay down his own life before allowing anyone to harm me and/or his mother-in-law.
“In fact, the idea that Ed would have a bomb attached to my car is totally ridiculous and preposterous because he loves his family deeply and would be devastated if anything happened to his children, grandchild, me or my mom.
“I do not understand how anyone could think that he would harm his grandchild?
“As an honorable man and a First Amendment Lawyer, he has spent his life solving crimes, issues, conflicts and peacefully seeking change through the legal system.
“Never has he been violent or advocated for violence.
“He has no time, no patience for and certainly no interest in murdering anyone or committing any other crimes, for that matter.
“Now I ask you, how a person who refers to me as “His Rock” and whose favorite expression is: Equal rights for all and special rights for none would somehow have a reason to plot this murder-for-hire against me?
“It just does not add up that Ed Steele would be involved, but it does add up that Larry Fairfax, who introduced the idea of hiring a hit man out of the blue in their conversations about handyman things around the property, would do something like this and point the finger at my husband.
“Let’s look for the real culprit: How about the person who is financially desperate, and who just stole $45,000 that he might want to cover up –would he have a motive to make up such a plot?
“As the Media, you should be very suspicious of the government’s accusations against my husband or anyone for that matter, when they present the real culprit as a person they want to protect with an 18-month Plea Agreement.
“As the Media, you need to ask, ‘Why would the government want to participate in a plot to blame Edgar Steele for something he did not do?’
“Then notice how the government’s story keeps changing;
“First they claimed that my husband’s motive was life insurance on me and my mother, but they could not find a life insurance policy -- because none existed;
“Then they changed their story about the motive two more times after that and it still doesn’t hold up, because Ed has no motive to kill me or his mother-in-law.
“Look, my mom's health has been pretty bad the last few years and because she can’t work full time, her house was going into foreclosure this spring.
“Ed, on his own, paid $3,000 to my mother’s mortgage company to avoid foreclosure this spring, so that she could have a “short sale” and still live in her own home until her house was sold and, hopefully, to give her more time to recover before having to move;
“This was Ed’s idea, not mine, because he is a man of charity, integrity and conviction;
“Ed has great respect for my mother, who now is so sick, she has faced multiple surgeries.
“My mother needs my help and I, as her only child, am a central part of her health care team.”
This is to inform the media that everything presented in this prepared statement by Mrs. Steele are the reasons why she is OBJECTING to the pending Plea Agreement being offered to Larry Fairfax which includes:
Manufacturing a firearm, rather than an aggravated offense. Judge Dale pointed out that Mr. Fairfax was accused of crimes of violence.
The present deal includes a probable 18 months of confinement and is an outrageously “soft plea” bargain for a man who admits he attempted to murder her and her mother.
Mr. Fairfax is a proven liar who was not honest or forthcoming on June 8th about the bomb under her car. He held secret that fact for seven days, until after the bomb was discovered on June 15th during an oil change.
He is a thief and an admitted attempted murderer, so why is he being given a soft plea deal?
He is not the one who notified the authorities about the Weapon of Mass Destruction under her car. It was Josh Young of Fast Lane Quick Lube who did that.
He hasn’t been charged with attempted murder, possession of an explosive device in a crime of violence or theft of the $45,000 in silver coins;
And the Government isn’t doing anything to make him pay restitution, even though he got the silver and cashed a lot of it in.
Mrs. Steele asks: “Is this the government’s way of paying off their Confidential Informant? By not charging him with theft so he can keep our money?”
And worse yet, is another pay off not charging him with attempted murder?
And, don’t forget: There are more Fairfax accomplices out there who haven’t been identified by the FBI or arrested and charged. If Mr. Fairfax gets off easy, these accomplices will be allowed to get off scot-free for their crimes.
Mrs. Steele states, “I don’t and never will feel safe until the FBI catches the entire Fairfax Gang and the public won’t be safe either. The Media should be asking the government the hard questions about capturing these bad guys. Please understand that I will continue to object to any Plea Agreement, especially a plea bargain that has no teeth, until the other three co-conspirators are brought to justice and Mr. Fairfax has been charged with the real crimes he committed: Attempted murder and Theft.
“Meanwhile, my mother and I, and the rest of my family are scared to death that someone really is going to kill us; if not with a bomb or by running us off the road, then by some other fashion. This should even scare you, because if they were willing to use a Weapon of Mass Destruction once on a couple of innocent old ladies, they are obviously ruthless killers who will do it again and the next time it could be in your neighborhood – And the FBI doesn’t seem to want to be accountable.
“My mother now is critically ill – This fictional drama about her son-in-law plotting to murder her and her daughter and the reality of Mr. Fairfax getting out in only 18 months and the other accomplices still at large are only making her health worse!
“You, as the media, need to help investigate, ask the tough questions and demand that the government does their job – so that the true criminals are convicted and all of us are truly SAFE!
“Once again, let me stress: The idea that Ed had put out a contract to kill my mother and I is ABSOLUTELY preposterous!
“I have one final statement I want to make which is to thank Josh Young and his co-workers, who discovered the bomb when I brought my car in for an oil change and for calling the police. Also, I want to thank the Bomb Squad, who risked their lives to remove the bomb from under my car.
“I, also, want to apologize to all the businesses and travelers along Hwy 95, while they closed down everything around the location of the Fastlane Quick Lube because my car was there with a bomb under it. I realize that this was an inconvenience for everyone and a financial strain on their businesses. I’m just glad that we are all still alive.
“Thank you for coming and taking the time to listen to me and my concerns.”
