Militia leader and Bundy supporter Richard Mack tells radio host Ben Swann that his sources inside law enforcement tell him Federal authorities are planning an armed raid on the Bundy ranch and the homes of Bundy’s children:
[The standdown] was a ploy to get people to back off, to get people out of the way. They weren’t expecting us to get this amount of people here. They were surprised by the numbers and so they wanted a way to get us out of here. This was a ploy to get us out of here and then they’re going after the Bundys. … If they do that kind of raid, I don’t believe there’s any way that could happen without bloodshed.
