Another of Trump’s Republican Cabinet Secretaries shows his absolute contempt for any semblance of ethical standards. Zinke threatens to surpass Scott Pruitt in flagrant flaunting of corrupt behavior. The Scott Pruitt, you remember, who bathed himself in corruption while head of the EPA–and whom Trump never fired, but who resigned because of family matters–and left office with Trump’s praise ringing in his ears.
As you read, remember: Zinke and the President who appointed him continue to have the full endorsement of Georgia Republicans like Senators Johnny Isakson and David Perdue; Representatives Barry Loudermilk and Karen Handel; and GOP gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp. They keep proving over and over again that they will follow Trump into the deepest levels of moral and intellectual corruption.
For Isakson, Perdue, Handel, Loudermilk, and Kemp, being lap dogs for Donald Trump takes precedent over the interests of the United States and its citizens.
