A Trump campaign official, the husband of a New Hampshire state representative, who was present at Bundy Ranch during that showdown, has arrived in Burn, Oregon, where armed militants have taken over a federal building. One of the terrorists, Brian Cavalier, abandoned the occupation when it was discovered he "stole his valor" and lied about his military career.

Bundy was discredited when he suggested African Americans were "better off as slaves."
Jerry DeLemus, one of the leaders of Veterans for Trump, and husband of Representative Susan DeLemus, arrived with a videographer on Wednesday evening, stating that he plans to try to help the men sort through rumors and see if he can help them figure out a resolution that would allow them to go home.
DeLemus was at Bundy Ranch and worked as chief of security during the 2014 standoff in Bunkerville, Nevada. He was the one who asked Jerad and Amanda Miller to leave — the duo who went on to kill two Las Vegas police officers and an armed civilian who intervened, before killing themselves.
He has also previously attempted to organize an Islamophobic “Draw Muhammed” contest in his state.
“I’m not worried about taking a risk,” DeLemus told the Daily Beast at the time. “It’s more important to defend our way of life in this country, our constitutional rights, for everybody.”
On Wednesday, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump was asked about the standoff, and responded by saying, “you have to maintain law and order, no matter what.”
Drama has also begun to unfold at the bird sanctuary, after the Daily Mail reported that Brian “Booda” Cavalier, 44, also known as “Fluffy Unicorn,” the personal bodyguard of Cliven and Ammon Bundy, had been lying about serving in the Marines. He has left the standoff since the report was published.
“I have seen some of the posts regarding Booda, Blaine (Cooper) and Ryan Payne (and) I will try to get to the bottom of all this scuttlebutt,” DeLemus wrote on Facebook.
