Here is a screen shot of an official Bear River tribal letter sent to me. It addresses two incidents, including a suspension of the Vice-Chair for one tribal council meeting without pay. That part was not addressed in the email sent to me.
I cannot enlarge it on blogger but I will post it on facebook.
This is the email she sent me:
"Here is the truth you are looking for truth is the chairman is being investigated by the FBI because the executive director william b sand received information from the a board member that they believe the chairman Brenard misused his credit card. The executive director investigated and then turned it over to the FBI when it was found to be true this is a letter to us as members signed by all members of the council yes William is my brother and as much as I hate him he is telling the truth When he says the McGinnis aren't being investigated but doesn't deny the chairman you should read between the lines."
In less than four days, I know how I am being deterred/intimidated to pursue this story and it is only coming from the McGinnis'. Imagine what my sources or anyone trying to get the truth out maybe going through? If the McGinnis' have nothing to hide, why prevent me investigating further?
As expected, this was the response from the FBI on July 6. "Thank you for your patience. The FBI can neither confirm nor deny the existence of an investigation relating to your inquiry."
