PORTLAND, Ore. — Lisa Bundy spoke briefly with reporters today on the sidewalk outside the Federal Courthouse in downtown Portland where her husband, Ammon, is on trial.
She did not mince words when asked how she thinks the trial is going.
“I feel like the judge is very biased," she said of U.S. District Judge Anna Brown. "I feel she's leading the jurors. I think she's giving the prosecution everything and not allowing anything on the defendants. She is not fair."
Ammon Bundy led the occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in southeast Oregon last January.
Bundy will decide Tuesday morning whether to take the witness stand in his own defense — his lawyer indicated it is likely.
Ammon and Lisa Bundy have six children. Their oldest is 13, the youngest is 1.
Lisa said the family is helped by prayer, but it is a difficult ordeal.
“Well, the kids go to bed crying every night because they miss their dad," she said. "We have football games and baseball games that dad hasn’t been able to be to. Not one thing. We still continue to go to our church services and do everything that we're supposed to do and continue to pray."
