Interior Department Opens Investigation Into David Bernhardt

The Interior Department's internal watchdog is investigating ethics complaints against newly confirmed Secretary David Bernhardt.

Deputy Inspector General Mary Kendall confirmed the investigation  in a letter  sent to multiple lawmakers Monday.

Kendall said she received seven complaints "alleging various conflicts of interest and other violations" by Bernhardt.

She added her office will conduct its review into those allegations "as expeditiously and thoroughly as practicable." The news comes just a few days after  the Senate confirmed Bernhardt  as the newest secretary of the interior.

As Newsy previously reported, he has faced scrutiny from lawmakers over potential conflicts of interest.

And earlier this year, a  CNN investigation  found he made policy changes during his stint as acting secretary that directly benefited his former clients at least 15 times.

A spokesperson for Bernhardt  told The New York Times  he is "is in complete compliance with his ethics agreement and all applicable laws, rules, and regulations." The White House declined to comment on the investigation.
