STATEMENT on Secretary Ryan Zinke’s threats to Senator Lisa Murkowski

DENVER—In response to reports that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke placed threatening calls to Alaska’s senators because of Senator Lisa Murkowski’s health care votes, the Center for Western Priorities released the following statement from Executive Director Jennifer Rokala:

“Ryan Zinke is revealing himself as Trump’s hitman. He’s now threatening to hold public lands and energy policy hostage over a health care bill. This is the U.S. government, not the Corleone family. Congress and the administration should discuss America’s energy and lands policy on the merits, without mob-inspired threats from the Department of the Interior and the White House.”
