Ex-Trump Officials Ryan Zinke & Corey Lewandowski Join D.C. Lobbying Firm

HeadlineFeb 15, 2019

In news from Washington, Ryan Zinke has joined the lobbying firm Turnberry Solutions, just weeks after stepping down as interior secretary. He becomes the first former Trump Cabinet official to join a lobbying firm. Shortly after taking office, President Trump signed an executive order that purported to ban White House officials from lobbying for five years. But according to ProPublica, at least 33 former Trump officials have managed to sidestep the ethics pledge. Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is also joining Turnberry Solutions.
