Investigation finds Trump interior secretary misused position and lied
The interior department’s inspector general said in a report made public today that Ryan Zinke, the interior secretary under Donald Trump, misused his position to advance a development project in his Montana hometown and lied to an agency ethics official about his involvement.

The Associated Press is reporting that Zinke continued working with a foundation on the commercial project in his hometown of Whitefish, Montana after taking office, even though he was supposed to break ties with the foundation upon swearing-in.

Investigators found that while he was in office, Zinke directed his staff to assist him with this project. He sent dozens of emails and text messages, held phone calls and met with developers.

Zinke also gave incorrect and incomplete information to an ethics official who confronted him over his involvement, the report states.
