A consultant company received $150,000 per month from the Navajo Nation, during secret negotiations for the purchase of bankrupt Remington Arms last year, according to documents obtained by Censored News.

If the deal had gone through, the consultant firm would have received up to $10 million.

The details are in documents which are now part of a criminal investigation by the Navajo Nation, and obtained by Censored News.

As the coronavirus spread and claimed hundreds of Dine' lives during the spring of 2020, secret negotiations were underway within the Navajo Budget and Finance Committee to purchase Remington Arms for $300 million.
