The federal government took action against supporters of Cliven Bundy on Thursday.
Two of Bundy’s sons, David Harold Bundy and Melvin D. Bundy, were arrested by federal agents. Two other sons, Ammond and Ryan Bundy, were arrested by the feds on January 26 after LaVoy Finicum was killed by the government during the non-violent occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon.
Cliven Bundy was arrested on February 10 in Portland, Oregon.
A federal indictment names the elder Bundy as the leader and beneficiary of the “conspiracy” to prevent the government from seizing cattle near the Bundy ranch in Nevada in April 2014. Bureau of Land Management officials backed down after public backlash.
The arrest of 12 people in six states followed agrand jury indictment in Nevada’s US District Court on Wednesday.
