On the 27th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing, the deadliest domestic terror attack in U.S. history, an inmate believed to have knowledge about potential co-conspirators in that bombing languishes in a Texas prison awaiting a sex change.
Prison staff are in the process of retaining surgeons to perform the operation for the inmate, who now goes by the name Donna Langan.
Some 30 years ago, white supremacist Pete Langan was terrorizing the Midwest with a series of bank robberies he committed with the Aryan Republican Army (ARA)—hiding his secret life as transgender “Donna McClure” all the while.
According to Utah attorney Jesse Trentadue, Langan holds a much graver secret to this day.
Attorneys for the former Aryan bank robber, who has reportedly disavowed white supremacism, did not respond to interview requests. But Trentadue provided The Epoch Times with a sworn declaration from Langan, where he talks about his fellow ARA members sharing responsibility for the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City that killed 168 people, including 19 children on April 19, 1995.
According to Langan’s 2007 sworn declaration, filed for a separate lawsuit Trentadue was pursuing against the FBI, some of his ARA cohorts were involved in the Oklahoma City attack. Langan said he first told the FBI of this in January 1996, when he was arrested in relation to the ARA’s numerous bank robberies, and after agents said his friends had betrayed him.
“When [FBI Special Agent Ed] Woods taunted me with the inference that my associates had betrayed me and would testify against me, I had had enough. I told him, ‘You’re going to have problems with your witnesses, because they have the blood of Oklahoma City on their hands,’” Langan said in the declaration.
“Subsequently, my attorney informed me that the government wanted to talk to me about the Oklahoma City bombing.”
At that time, the FBI was already investigating possible links between the ARA and the OKC bombing. Among many other clues, McVeigh’s sister Jennifer had disclosed that he sent her proceeds of bank robberies, which McVeigh said he committed with like-minded crusaders who were “at war with the system.”
