DOI nominee Bernhardt peppered with skeptical questions by confirmation panel, but also supported

David Bernhardt, President Trump's nominee to lead the Department of Interior, escaped questioning during his confirmation hearing Thursday relatively unscathed after Democrats pressed him about his former lobbyist ties and actions at the agency.


Bernhardt, who has served as acting Interior secretary since January, defended controversial policies he’s played a hand in developing at the agency while testifying before lawmakers on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
