Hawley Exposes Interior Secretary Haaland for Department Meetings with Dark Money Groups that Fund Far Left Climate Policies

Thursday, May 02, 2024

Today in a Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing, U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) questioned Department of the Interior Secretary Deb Haaland over reports that her agency has met with foreign dark-money groups that actively fund left-wing environmental initiatives. 

“Is it common practice at your department to meet with dark-money groups off the books and conceal it from the public?” asked Senator Hawley.

Senator Hawley continued to press Secretary Haaland on the question of who really runs the Interior Department and called out the growing corruption problem within her agency and the Biden Administration writ large.

“We have foreign billionaires, who are funding dark-money groups, coming to meet with your leadership, concealing it from the public, while they are filing lawsuits adverse to the department. . . . “The American people should be charge—not the foreign billionaires,” he concluded.
