(KSL News) -- The Skull Valley Goshute tribe's disputed leadership is being targeted by federal agents.
Last week, investigators seized documents from the tribal offices of Leon Bear in South Salt Lake, as part of an on going investigation into alleged corruption. Rival tribal members have accused Bear and his circle of allies of bribery and fraud.
Sammy Blackbear/Goshute Tribal Member "BRIBERY, CORRUPTION, EMBEZZLEMENT, FRAUD. IT'S ALL THE BIG ONES, YOU NAME IT, THEY'RE THERE."
Leon Bear tells Eyewitness News, "If Blackbear is making allegations he should be able to prove them."
Bear insists he's done nothing wrong. He says is cooperating with investigators.
When asked what, specifically agents were investigating, Bear said, "I can't read their minds."
