Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke are joining Turnberry Solutions, a lobbying firm founded by former Trump campaign aides, Politico reports.

The big picture: Zinke resigned as interior secretary amid several investigations into his travel and potential conflicts of interest, including a Justice Department probe into whether he lied to investigators from the Interior's inspector general's office — a potential criminal violation. Zinke is the first Trump Cabinet member to join a lobbying firm after leaving the administration.
