In the latest on the FBI investigation at the Pearl River Resort, Miko Beasley Denson has issued a two paragraph statement.
In it, Denson acknowledges the Department of Justice executed a search warrant at the resort.
He states, "As Tribal Chief and Chairman of the Choctaw Resort Development Enterprise, I have advised the resort's management to cooperate fully with the investigation."
He continued, "The nature of the investigation is still unclear. Media speculation and citing of unnamed sources is highly irresponsible."
Denson questioned the timing of the investigation saying politics should never factor into a federal investigation.
