Wow! All the members of the Bundy Oregon Standoff WERE FOUND NOT GUILTY!
They were arrested in January in a confrontation when LaVoy Finicum was killed:
“One person is dead and eight others, including Oregon occupation leader Ammon Bundy, were detained following a violent confrontation with the FBI and state police Tuesday night. It all began with a traffic stop while Bundy and some of his followers were en route to a community meeting at a John Day senior center, about 70 miles north of Burns.”
According to the Oregonian:
“Ammon Bundy and six-co-defendants are charged with conspiring to impede federal employees at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge through intimidation, threat or force stemming from the 41-day occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Four of the seven defendants are charged with possessing guns in a federal facility. Two of the defendants each face an additional charge of theft of government property.”
Today they were found NOT GUILTY.
Here’s how it looked to a reporter in the room (via Ryan Haas):

It turned out that FIFTEEN government informants infiltrated the seven people charged:
“The FBI had 15 confidential sources feeding them information from their contacts with occupiers at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, a prosecutor confirmed in court Friday.”
Was it a setup?
Ammon Bundy is grateful to be free.
