Bundy brothers moved to Nevada jail to face 2014 charges after acquittal in Oregon

Published

on

Ammon and Ryan Bundy were sent to Nevada to await trial for their roles in a 2014 armed standoff with federal agents near their family’s ranch.

The brothers, along with five other defendants, were acquitted last week in connection with the occupation earlier this year at the Malheur National Wildlife Reserve.

The Multnomah County Jail shows the Bundy brothers, who gave separate interviews from jail earlier this week, and left the downtown Portland jail Wednesday morning and were being flown to Las Vegas, reported The Associated Press.

The pair will face more than a dozen charges at a trial scheduled for February related to the April 2014 standoff near Bunkerville, Nevada.

Their father, Cliven, and two brothers, Melvyn and David, have also been charged in the case.

Ryan Bundy warned this week that supporters may attempted another armed action against federal authorities if President Barack Obama designates the Gold Butte ranger, which is near the ranch, as a national monument.

His younger brother vowed that the family and their supporters would “continue to stand.”

Federal authorities are worried that their acquittal on conspiracy and other charges in the Oregon case might embolden anti-government extremists.

Some of the participants in the Malheur takeover have signaled they will withdraw their guilty pleas in the case after the occupation’s leaders were acquitted.

On Thursday, The Daily Beast reported that Lev Parnas, the Rudy Giuliani associate currently under federal indictment for campaign finance violations, helped Rep.

According to congressional records, Nunes, in his capacity as then-House Intelligence Chairman, visited Europe from November 30 to December 3, of last year, during which he was accompanied by three staffers — Derek Harvey, Scott Glabe, and George Pappas — at a taxpayer expense of over $63,000.

On Wednesday, as the House wrapped up another day of bombshell impeachment testimony from multiple foreign service officers, former GOP strategist and Never Trump conservative Rick Wilson mocked President Donald Trump and his Republican allies, pointing out that all of their major talking points to defend the president's conduct in Ukraine have been "obliterated":
