Interior Secretary Zinke to Step Down After Dems Bury Him in Legal Fees and Investigations Over His Trump Socks, Real Estate Deals
Bloomberg White House reporter Jennifer Jacobs reported, “Ryan Zinke has notified the White House he intends to step down as interior secretary. Concern about legal costs and scrutiny of his travel, political activity and potential conflicts of interest were factors in Zinke’s decision, I’m told. Plan is to announce Wednesday.”
“Replacement names that have emerged include Nevada’s Dean Heller, Nevada’s Adam Laxalt, Wisconsin’s Scott Walker, Idaho’s Butch Otter, Utah’s Sean Reyes and others,” Jennifer Jacobs added.
In July, the Office of Special Counsel (not to be confused with Mueller’s Special Counsel) opened a case file on President Trump’s Interior Secretary, Ryan Zinke for a possible violation of the Hatch Act because he posted a photo of Trump socks on Twitter.
Yes, that is correct. A Trump official was being investigated over his socks
THEY NEVER LET UP,NOT EVEN FOR A SECOND
Enviros already start their campaign to derail Zinke’s likely replacement
In the several hours since President Donald Trump announced Ryan Zinke would be stepping down from his position as Secretary of the Interior Department, critics have already launched an attack website against his likely replacement.
The Western Values Project (WVP), a left-leaning environmental organization, has launched http://www.davidbernhardt.org, a website that purportedly lists the conflicts of interest in David Bernhardt’s past. Bernhardt is the current deputy secretary of the Interior, and will serve as acting secretary once Zinke leaves at the end of the year.
