(Before It's News)

A federal jury on Thursday found Ammon Bundy, his brother Ryan Bundy and five co-defendants not guilty…….

“More than we could have hoped for,” said one of Ammon Bundy's lawyers, J. Morgan Philpot……

Ammon Bundy, his hands clasped behind his back, nodded as the “not guilty” verdicts were read for him first. As he sat, he smiled and rubbed the shoulder of his lawyer, Marcus Mumford.

His older brother Ryan Bundy stood. As the “not guilty” verdicts were read, he nodded, and mouthed to the jury, “Thank you.” Defendant Neil Wampler hugged and kissed his defense lawyer, Maxfield.

The coda to the stunning verdict, undoubtedly a significant blow to federal prosecutors, was when Ammon Bundy's lawyer Marcus Mumford argued that his client, dressed in a gray suit and white dress shirt, should be allowed to walk out of court, a free man.

U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown told him there was a U.S. Marshal's hold on him from a pending federal indictment in Nevada.

“If there's a detainer show me,” Mumford stood, arguing before the judge.

Suddenly a group of about six U.S. Marshals surrounded Mumford at his defense table. The judge directed them to move back but moments later, the marshals grabbed on him.

“What are you doing?” Mumford yelled, as he struggled and was taken down to the floor.

As the deputy marshals yelled. “Stop resisting,” the judge demanded, “Everybody out of the courtroom now!”
