Where To Get This Card: Card Pack 4


"Eisenhower Holt has a big chip on his shoulder. Not only was he expelled from West Point, but his father, Buchanan, is known as a Tomas traitor. Buchanan had been a rising star in the branch--a superb athlete and a skilled Clue hunter. However, the Ekats claimed that Buchanan gave them important Tomas secrets. Was Buchanan really an Ekat spy? Or was someone out there trying to make the rivalry between the two branches even more bitter?"


This card is a file from the Ekats. The words that have been X'ed over in order are,"Lisa", "Bert", "assassinating", "discord", "stolen a clue", "Ekaterinas", "end his career", "stronghold", "the file", "doctored",  "Bae Oh" and "outcast". At the top, it says "January 15, 1954."
