An Oregon State Police trooper testified a government informant was driving Ammon Bundy when the Oregon standoff leader was arrested on his way to a community meeting north of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The armed protesters who occupied a remote bird sanctuary in Oregon's high desert earlier this year did so to protest federal land policy, which has been a point of contention in Western states for decades.
Federal prosecutors want to drop a federal conspiracy indictment against a self-described independent broadcaster who was present at the standoff at a remote Oregon national wildlife refuge earlier this year.
Ammon Bundy, the son of Cliven Bundy facing trial for leading the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon earlier this year, offered to plead guilty to all charges if those also charged would be released.
Ammon Bundy and three co-defendants who are jailed in Oregon for the occupation of a national wildlife refuge have appealed an order that requires them to fly to Nevada next month to face charges in a federal case there.
