Zinke moving dozens of senior Interior officials in shake-up

By Juliet Eilperin and Lisa Rein June 16 at 1:55 PM

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is reassigning top career officials within his ranks, a shake-up that appears to be the start of a broad reorganization of a department that manages one-fifth of all land within the United States.

The decision to move members of the Senior Executive Service (SES) is only legally permitted after a political appointee has been in office for 120 days; Zinke won’t reach that mark until June 28. But the letters that three dozen or more Interior officials got Thursday night — one of which was obtained by The Washington Post — provides them with 15 days notice of their job change. The notice means their reassignments could take place at the earliest date that’s legally permissible.
....

The officials who received notices include Interior’s top climate policy official, Joel Clement, who directs the Office of Policy Analysis, as well as at least five senior Fish and Wildlife Service officials — nearly a quarter of that agency’s career SES staff. Among the Fish and Wildlife officials are the assistant director for international affairs, Bryan Arroyo; the southwest regional director, Benjamin Tuggle; and the southeast regional director, Cindy Dohner.

Other moves include the transfer of BLM New Mexico state director Amy Lueders to Fish and Wildlife and the reassignment of Bureau of Indian Affairs Director Weldon “Bruce” Loudermilk, Acting Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs Michael S. Black and Acting Special Trustee for American Indians Debra L. DuMontier.

every action taken was enabled by the hacked and stolen election

2. How quaint, this asshole gets confirmed to be the asshole to basically undermine

the BLM, for the Bundy crowd's running around, and the corporations wanting to decimate the BLM for a fucking profit, and to designate National Parks as the land new spoils, so that he can put his fucking stooges in charge--------------------fuck him.

And now the country gets a fucking asshole, that has to give "community service" and a fucking fine of $385, dollars to take his place, who by the way raised a stink about people "crossing" his supposed land to fish, and now the rest of the country gets shit upon by this asshole, and the asshole in charge of Interior------------------and people wonder why the country is turning into a third rate state
