Did Ryan Zinke Lose His Way?
Ryan Zinke was the Secretary of the Department of the Interior.
He resigned Saturday, December 15.
Zinke was a rising star in Republican politics.
From Navy Seal he rose to become a member of Donald Trump's cabinet.
But, Zinke did not follow the rules of politics.
One of his biggest mistakes was hosting the chairman of Halliburton at the Department of Interior headquarters in August 2017.
Zinke and the chairman discussed commercial development on land connected to a park controlled by a foundation created by Zinke.
Politico says that Zinke's ignorance of political norms and lack of guidance from Trump led to his resignation.
