Ryan Zinke under investigation for healthcare pressure play

August 23, 2017View for printing

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is under investigation by his own agency's inspector general over reports that he threatened Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, with repercussion for her healthcare vote last week.

The Interior Department's Office of the Inspector General said Thursday that it has started a "preliminary investigation" into the reports after two senior House Democrats filed a formal petition with the IG and the Government Accountability Office a week ago to determine if Zinke violated anti-lobbying laws.
