That's the understatement of the year.
Pete Santilli was remanded without bail for the weekend while the judge reviews the case against him. The judge may make a decision on bail/release on Monday. Let's hope she determines he stays in jail.
A memorandum in support of release was filed by Santilli's government paid defense attorney; however, I doubt it is worth the $.10 per page it would cost me to download it from Fed Court records.

As to the non-hoaxer militants, release was denied for Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Ryan Payne, Jason Patrick, and Dylan Anderson. Josephy O'Shaughnessy and Shawna Cox were released with ankle monitoring and GPC. O'Shaughnessy's release was appealed by the government. Brian Cavalier and Duane Ehmer will be reviewed on Thursday.
Let us leave with our guns, no checkpoints, and amnesty.
The delusion is strong in Bundy Followers.
