Eshoo Statement on the Departure of Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke

December 16th, 2018

Palo Alto, CA – Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo released the following statement after Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced he will leave the administration at the end of the year:

“Few cabinet secretaries have violated the public trust and used their office for such undisguised personal gain as Secretary Zinke. During his toxic tenure at the Department of the Interior, he has ignored his responsibilities to act in the public interest and shown he is willing to sell out our nation’s public lands and natural resources to the highest bidder. 

“The election of a democratic majority in the House sent a clear message to the Trump Administration that the business-as-usual dealings of the most corrupt cabinet in American history will no longer be tolerated.

“Yesterday’s announcement is welcome news for our environment and the principle of public accountability in government. 

“Good riddance.”
