Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, who is facing federal investigations into his travel, political activity and potential conflicts of interest, will leave the administration at year's end, President Donald Trump said Saturday. Dogged by ethics probesHe pushed to develop oil, natural gas and coal beneath public lands in line with the administration's aims. Asked by reporters last month whether he might fire Zinke, Trump said, "No, I'm going to look into any complaints." Zinke had a memorable administration debut when he rode a horse to his first day of work in March 2017. "Zinke will go down as the worst Interior secretary in history," said Kieran Suckling, executive director of the Center for Biological Diversity, in a statement released Saturday.
