Kendall said that her office will examine [Secretary of the Interior Ryan] Zinke’s 'reported ongoing involvement in and use of taxpayer resources to advance land developments in Whitefish, Montana.'" "A group funded by David Lesar, the Halliburton chairman, is planning a large commercial development on a former industrial site near the center of the Zinkes’ hometown of Whitefish, a resort area that has grown increasingly popular with wealthy tourists. The development would include a hotel and retail shops. There also would be a microbrewery — a business first proposed in 2012 by Ryan Zinke and for which he lobbied town officials for half a decade." Zinke owns land in close proximity to the proposed development and has been involved in discussions: "a foundation established by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and headed by his wife is playing a key role." Haliburton's "operations are directly affected by many of the Interior Department’s policies, including regulations on how oil and gas drilling must be conducted, and which public lands and federal waters are open to exploration and development." On January 4, 2018 the Department of the Interior announced an expansion of approved offshore drilling areas “in nearly all U.S. waters, the single largest expansion of offshore oil and gas leasing ever proposed by the federal government.” [post_title] => Secretary Of The Interior Ryan Zinke Involved In Discussions Around Haliburton Backed Development Project; Zinke Owns Land In The Area, While Haliburton Stands To Benefit From Looser Regluations Pushed By Zinke [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => secretary-interior-ryan-zinke-involved-discussions-around-haliburton-backed-development-project-zinke-owns-land-area-haliburton-stands-benefit-looser-regluations-pushe [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-11-10 13:34:39 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-11-10 13:34:39 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://factualuprising.com/?p=2686 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [2] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 2661 [post_author] => 1 [post_date] => 2018-09-08 19:19:07 [post_date_gmt] => 2018-09-08 19:19:07 [post_content] => Allan Weisselberg, the longtime Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization, was granted immunity by federal prosecutors for his testimony in the case against Michael Cohen, Trump's longtime personal lawyer.

Pruitt also reportedly used his staff to perform personal tasks and other non-work related errands and failed to adhere to government record keeping standards by using private email and phones for government business.  Read the full list of scandals here.
