Pennsylvania Lawyer Thinks FBI Secretly Found $400M in Civil War Gold

With the FBI’s reputation already in tatters, this lack of transparency is concerning. 

There is perhaps no more fanciful and whimsical premise for a movie than that of a treasure hunt.  The big “x” on the map.  The clues, the intrigue, and the drama are just made to keep up interested.

And so, when real-life treasure hunting breaks into the news cycle, we find ourselves drawn to it in droves.

Such is the case this week, as a Pennsylvania lawyer is crying foul in the direction of the FBI, accusing the organization of pilfering a massive cache of Civil War gold.

A Pennsylvania lawyer looking into whether the FBI dug up $400 million worth of Civil War gold is planning to ask a judge to unseal documents in the case so he can find out the truth.

William Cluck told PennLive a magistrate judge in Harrisburg sealed documents in the March 2018 excavation case involving the FBI from the public, and is now demanding to know if gold was even found.

Cluck represents Finders Keepers LLC, a treasure-hunting company he said told the federal authorities about the excavation site in the Dent’s Run area of Elk County.

The lawyer claims the feds are refusing to tell the company if anything was found. He added that if gold was actually discovered, his clients deserve a cut of the treasure, according to PennLive.

His accusations appear to have some possible merit.

Not only did the Bureau bring their “art crimes” unit to the scene, but they brought them in droves.

“They had 50 agents there. We have witnesses that they were there all night with armored cars,” Cluck told the outlet. “So, what are we supposed to believe? We are convinced that they found gold.”

With the FBI’s reputation already in tatters, this lack of transparency is concerning.
