‘Violations Are Just The Tip Of The Iceberg’: DOJ Launches Investigation Into Ryan Zinke Use Of Taxpayer Money
The Department of Justice is conducting an investigation into whether or not Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has used his office for personal gain, CNN reported Tuesday.
In recent weeks, Zinke was reportedly found by the DOI IG to have violated the department’s travel policy. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg: there’s a good rundown of the many investigations targeting Zinke here.
The latest move comes after the Interior Department’s Inspector General turned over the investigation to the DOJ.
Zinke told CNN that the DOJ has not contacted him.
“They haven’t talked to me,” he told CNN. “It will be the same thing as all the other investigations. I follow all rules, procedures, regulations and most importantly the law. This is another politically driven investigation that has no merit.”
