Donald Trump pardoned Dwight Hammond and son Steven on Tuesday, two Oregon cattle ranchers who were convicted of arson on public lands after a long-running dispute over control of public properties adjoining their ranch. Their case sparked a 41-day occupation by a militia group of a national wildlife refuge in early 2016. John Yang learns more from P.J. Tobia.
