The FBI used 15 confidential sources for information from their contacts with occupiers during the 41-day armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, according to a prosecutor in the case.

Now Ammon Bundy’s lawyer Marcus Mumford wants the court to force prosecutors to reveal the identities of the informants in the federal conspiracy trail against his client and six co-defendants, the Oregonian reports. 

“We’re being prosecuted based on the collective actions of others,” Mumford argued.

Two of the 15 defendants have been identified during trial as Terri Linnel, who was called as a defense witness, and Mark McConnel, who was driving with Ammon Bundy when he was arrested on Jan. 26.

U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown requested the government disclose to her the unreacted reports from the 15 informants.

The sources resulted in 129 reports, which the judge plans to review before determining whether to release the sources’ names and other information.
