US Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke denied accusations of using misconduct and using his position for own benefit as false, following the announcement of his resignation.
An investigation was reportedly launched, among others, into the real estate deal struck between a foundation established by Zinke and a group supported by the chairman of the Halliburton oil service company, which could have constituted a conflict of interest. Zinke’s alleged expensive flights on private aircraft were also being probed.
