Right wing radio host Pete Santilli acted as a spokesman Monday for the armed militia movement in rural, eastern Oregon in an interview with Fox News.

“They’re here to enforce the supreme law of the land, which is the U.S. Constitution,” Santilli said an episode of Fox News’ afternoon program “Happening Now.”

Santilli came under fire, including an investigation by the Secret Service, after he threatened to shoot former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “in the vagina” in 2013.

Armed militia members, took over an unoccupied building at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon’s eastern desert near the town of Burns.
