In 1989 he was removed from office by a deeply divided Navajo Council, pending the results of federal criminal investigations instigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. MacDonald was sent to federal prison in 1990 for violations of US law, not Navajo Nation laws. Within several years he was convicted of more U.S. federal crimes, including fraud, extortion, riot, bribery, and corruption.
