After all defendants in the Oregon standoff were found not guilty — Ammon Bundy and his six followers — Bundy’s lawyer Marcus Mumford was taken into custody Thursday afternoon, Katu.com reports.

The defendants were facing charges of conspiracy after taking over the Malheur National Wildlife Center in Oregon earlier this year.

After the jury handed down their verdict, the Bundy brothers Ammon and Ryan were asked by Judge Anna Brown to stay over their involvement in another standoff in Nevada.

Last week, President Donald Trump finally heard the news that the Russian government was giving cash to Afghanistan's Taliban forces to murder American soldiers.

Initially, he began with Step one in the Trump list of processing a scandal: denial.

Who is their 'source'?" tweeted Trump on June 28.
