Exclusive: Zinke linked with real estate deal with Halliburton president

From the League of Conservation Voters in the USA today:

The internal watchdog at the Department of the Interior just launched a formal probe into a real estate deal between Ryan Zinke and the chairman of [George W Bush‘s Vice President Dick Cheney‘s] Halliburton, one of the country’s largest offshore drilling companies.

This is just the latest in a long list of Zinke’s scandals. With reports of him skirting campaign finance laws, violating the Hatch Act, and spending on the taxpayer’s dime, he must be held accountable — just like Pruitt was.

This is our chance to shine a light on Zinke’s ethical lapses. We’re pushing to hold him accountable for his shameful attacks on our public lands. Right now a major donor is triple-matching every contribution — we need your help.

We got Pruitt out — we can hold Zinke accountable too, but only if we can go big with this. We need every LCV member to step up.

While this scandal shines light on how unethical Zinke is, it’s nothing in comparison to the destruction he’s done in his first sixteen months at the helm of the Interior Department.

He’s gutting protections from Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments … Moved to auction off nearly all of America’s coastlines to offshore drilling … Expanded regulatory loopholes to benefit Big Polluters. His damage will take decades to undo.

I want you to know this is a fight we can win, Lola. We’ve already seen members of Trump’s cabinet leave the administration after public outcry over corruption and cronyism. Just last month, former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt resigned in disgrace after facing an unprecedented 55 anti-secrecy lawsuits and a barrage of bad publicity over his lavish expenses on the taxpayers’ dime. And before that, there was HHS Secretary Tom Price.

Thank you for standing with us.

The scandals are piling up for Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke.
