Federal investigation continues against Gov. Justice, Greenbrier Resort

West Virginia Headlines

The U.S. Department of Justice continues its investigation against Gov. Jim Justice and his families’ companies.

‘Neighbors Loving Neighbors,’ formed in 2016, is the charity in question. The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating its legal existence after the Greenbrier Resort listed the ‘Old White Charities’ as their only non-profit, according to the IRS.

“It didn’t really exist,” said Rob Cornelius, a Chairman of the Wood Country Republican Executive Committee. “There was no record of that $4 million being raised, or spent, or where it came from, and where it went. To money heaven maybe.”

Gov. Justice denies the claims and promises his full cooperation with the federal investigators. 

As the U.S. Department of Justice continue to xamine documents in the case, no timetable has been set on when the matter will resolved.

It’s important to note that no one has been charged with anything or is accused of any wrongdoing at this point in time.
