On Wednesday, the watchdog group Protect the Public’s Trust filed a lawsuit in federal court seeking unreleased records of Interior Secretary Deb Haaland’s schedule and travel log. The group says the suit followed indications that “political appointees may be responsible for the lack of transparency,” according to Just The News.
The group says that during Haaland’s time on the House Natural Resources Committee while she served in Congress, she and her colleagues “lodged multiple complaints regarding online calendars they believed were delayed or provided insufficient detail.”
Now, her staffer who formerly worked for far-left Rep. Raúl Grijalva, the chairman of the Committee, oversees Haaland’s calendar. Protect the Public’s Trust says that “it appears the agency may be intentionally withholding” the full schedule, which is only publicly accessible in a “skeleton version.”
