A day after the leaders of an armed anti-government group were arrested, authorities on Wednesday urged a handful of remaining activists to abandon the Oregon wildlife refuge they have occupied for more than three weeks, saying it was “time to move on.” There are late reports that militia leader Ammon Bundy was urging the same. Meanwhile, details began to emerge about the confrontation that occurred on a remote highway between the small towns of Burns and John Day. Followers of Ammon Bundy gave conflicting accounts of how one of the men in the two-vehicle convoy was killed during a traffic stop. One of Bundy’s followers said Robert Finicum charged at FBI agents, who then shot him.

Even if he doesn’t show up, Donald Trump will most likely be the target of many arrows fired by the other GOP candidates at Thursday night’s debate. If, in fact, Trump does show up, well… that could be rather interesting as well. Whatever ends up happening, Aaron is there in Des Moines, and will have the latest on the Trump drama, and preview the final GOP debate before the Iowa caucuses.

The FBI and Oregon State Police arrested the leaders of an armed group that has occupied a national wildlife refuge for the past three weeks during a traffic stop that prompted gunfire — and one death — along a highway through the frozen high country. Militant leader Ammon Bundy and his followers were reportedly heading to a community meeting at the senior center in John Day, a Grant County town about 70 miles north of Burns, to address local residents to discuss their views on federal management of public lands. Authorities arrested the entire crew, and killed one, though they refuse to confirm who died. The Oregonian though reports that it was Arizona rancher Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, a frequent spokesperson for the group, was the person killed, citing the man’s daughter
