The Washington Post is reporting that according to individuals “familiar with the matter,” the Interior Department’s Office of Inspector General has referred to the Justice Department allegations that Ryan Zinke, head of the Interior Department, used his position for private gain. The referral was evidently of only one of the probes being conducted by the IG’s office into Zinke’s affairs and how he has conducted himself in office. The IG’s office only refers cases of this type to the Justice Department if they have determined that there is a possibility of criminal charges. Zinke is looking to replace the current acting IG, who is investigating him, with a political appointee.
If this is the kind of government you want, vote Republican.
