Sources: Zinke exploring role with Fox News

Source: Politico



By BEN LEFEBVRE and ELIANA JOHNSON 11/08/2018 05:19 PM EST

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke reached out to Fox News inquiring about working at the conservative news channel as a contributor, according to sources familiar with the move.

Zinke’s outreach came as the scandal-plagued former Navy SEAL and Montana congressman is looking for employment opportunities after he exits Interior, as is expected. Zinke is also seeking positions on energy company boards of directors or even with private equity firms, two sources have said.

A contract with Fox would be unlikely unless President Donald Trump asks Rupert Murdoch, the media mogul who owns Fox’s parent company News Corp., one source told POLITICO.

Sources close to Zinke said he has made it known he plans to resign his position by the end of the year. He may have to leave earlier, however, depending on what Trump thinks of the investigation the Interior’s inspector general office has referred to his Justice Department.

6. Zinke is up to his black Stetson in shit.

If the Ethics Committee digs (and it won't have to be too deep) into his behavior, he's toast.

Burnt toast.

7. Once Trump is gone, so is FOX. Zinke can go down with the sinking ship.

9. Yeah, Fox - a good place for this grifter.

He should have been gone a long time ago. tRump would do well to cut him loose. Why let him hang around and resign?

Kick his butt out the door!
