Dirty energy interests are swamping the U.S. Interior Department under the Trump administration. A new analysis shows that top Interior Department officials held 12 times as many meetings with executives from the oil, gas, electricity, coal and mining industries as with conservation and renewable energy interests.

Public Citizen and Documented Investigations analyzed calendars of Interior Secretary David Bernhardt and Deputy Secretary Katharine MacGregor, both of whom are former lobbyists. The analysis focused on 361 meetings listed on Bernhardt and MacGregor’s calendars from January 2017 through March 2019.

The results provide a window into the extensive access provided to corporate polluters in the Trump era, showing 235 meetings with executives from the oil, gas, electricity, coal and mining industries. By contrast, conservation and renewable energy interests had only 19 meetings with the top two officials. Lobbying and law firms, who mostly represented industry interests, had 31 meetings. Hunting groups had 21 meetings.

Major trade groups and companies that met with Bernhardt and MacGregor included the American Petroleum Institute (10 meetings); the National Ocean Industries Association, which represents the offshore drilling industry (nine); meetings with multiple oil industry groups and companies (eight); individual meetings with Shell, BP, Exxon Mobil and ConocoPhillips (six each); the National Petroleum Council (six) and the National Mining Association (five).

By comparison, the calendars for Bernhardt and MacGregor show 21 meetings with hunting groups such as the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (4 meetings), Ducks Unlimited (4) and the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership (3). The calendars show 10 meetings with conservation groups such as the National Park Foundation, Public Lands Foundation, Pew Charitable Trusts, Nature Conservancy nine meetings with renewable energy interests including the American Wind Energy Association and Solar Energy Industries Association.

The calendars, which are available  online, were obtained through Interior Department public disclosures and public records requests. The Interior Department has released calendars for both Bernhardt and MacGregor from 2017 through 2018. Bernhardt’s calendars for 2019 and part of 2020 have also been posted on the Interior Department’s website, but those newer calendars contain almost no detail and mostly obscure the identities of individuals and companies meeting with Bernhardt. The Interior Department has not published MacGregor’s calendars since November 2018.


This examination of calendars of Bernhardt and MacGregor builds upon a previous Documented analysis finding that MacGregor held 62 meetings with groups lobbying to open more U.S. waters to offshore drilling. Separately, Documented also found at least 70 meetings between top Trump administration officials at the Interior Department and former Bernhardt clients or employers, including his former law firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, the Independent Petroleum Association of America, the U.S. Oil and Gas Association and the National Ocean Industries Association.

Both Bernhardt and MacGregor have worked in the Trump administration since its start. Bernhardt was the Interior Department’s deputy secretary, and then acting secretary after former secretary Ryan Zinke’s resignation in late 2018.  A longtime lobbyist for the oil industry and big agricultural interests, Bernhardt was confirmed as secretary in April 2019.  He is perhaps best known for having a list of conflicts so extensive that he had to carry around an index card to remember them all. Bernhardt’s former legal and lobbying clients include onshore and offshore oil and gas firms, water pipeline projects, tribal interests, agribusiness and mining firms, among others. A Public Citizen analysis released earlier this year found that former lobbying and legal clients of Bernhardt spent about $30 million lobbying the federal government since the start of the Trump administration, and that 17 former lobbying and legal clients who were on Bernhardt’s recusal list have lobbied the federal government since the start of the Trump administration.





MacGregor briefly worked as a lobbyist before becoming a Republican congressional staffer. Another early hire of former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, MacGregor was confirmed as the agency’s deputy secretary in February. MacGregor, who touted the Trump administration’s agenda of “energy dominance” in Fox News and Bloomberg interviews, has been a close ally of the energy industry. An industry official said in a recording obtained by Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting that “we’ll call Kate” was the energy industry’s default solution to regulatory roadblocks.As reported by Reveal, MacGregor helped a former client of Secretary David Bernhardt secure oil and gas drilling permits from the Bureau of Land Management, though the company seeking the permits filed “deficient” applications, according to Interior Department documents  obtained by Documented Investigations and Public Citizen through a lawsuit filed under the Freedom of Information Act.

The Interior Department’s open-door policy toward corporate interests has led to direct benefits for the oil and gas industry.

Two of the entities with the most access to top Interior officials, the American Petroleum Institute and the National Ocean Industries Association, are prime examples. Both groups lobby for offshore oil and gas corporations, among other interests.

With Bernhardt and MacGregor at the helm, Interior has bulldozed a wide path through the offshore regulatory structure, allowing offshore oil and gas interests to ramp up production. The Gulf of Mexico is now producing more oil and gas than ever, though instances of spills and accidents are on the rise.



Internal documents from NOIA and the Interior Department reveal that the agency has worked had to satisfy the industry’s goals. In April of 2017, MacGregor facilitated a meeting between former Secretary Ryan Zinke and NOIA, in which NOIA discussed “support for increased access to new offshore acreage.” In a memo preparing Secretary Zinke for this NOIA meeting, MacGregor wrote  “The Department’s ultimate goal is to open access to new offshore areas.”

Later that year, at a meeting at the Jackson Hole, Wyo. Four Seasons hotel  in October 2017, NOIA outlined a wish list of “priority regulatory issues”  involving the rollback of rules for offshore oil in the Trump era, calling the need for “collaboration among all stakeholders.” In attendance was MacGregor, then an assistant secretary at Interior.

Then, in May 2018, MacGregor held a meeting in May 2018 on opening currently closed Gulf of Mexico waters with former Senator David Vitter, now a lobbyist with Mercury Public Affairs who has lobbied for EnVen Energy Ventures.



The offshore oil industry trade group is also an ex-client of Bernhardt. At Brownstein Hyatt,  Bernhardt represented NOIA in a lawsuit brought by environmental groups to challenge an Obama administration offshore lease sale in the Gulf of Mexico after the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Bernhardt appears to have been a regular speaker at NOIA’s annual meetings, speaking at a 2011 spring meeting, appearing in photos with former Vice President Dick Cheney and industry executives at the group’s fall 2013 meeting, and speaking again at the 2014 annual meeting.

At the latter event, Bernhardt gave a presentation on regulatory issues in the wake of the April 2010 oil rig explosion, which killed 11 people and triggered an 87-day oil spill. Bernhardt argued that federal enforcement authority does not apply to contractors” such as Halliburton, the BP contractor that was found to have used flawed cement at the BP offshore well. In 2017, the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the industry, holding that the Interior Department’s oil drilling safety division does not have authority over contractors.

Trump named Scott Angelle, a Louisiana politician and longtime ally of the offshore drilling industry to run the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, the Interior Department bureau that oversees the offshore drilling industry. In September 2017, Angelle said his agency “is clearly moving from creating hardships to creating partnerships, from an era of isolation to an era of cooperation.”  However, a Public Citizen report in March 2018 found that at least nine companies fined by BSEE in recent years had corporate, personal or family member donations to Angelle’s political campaigns.  The report found that these nine companies or associated individuals contributed $142,750 directly to Angelle’s campaigns in the past. They have also paid more than $3.6 million to BSEE over the past five years related to 47 separate incidents.

Another industry priority, promoted by the American Petroleum Association and others, has been the opening up of the Atlantic coast to offshore drilling. In March of 2019, a top Trump official let slip that the Atlantic coast would be available of offshore leasing and drilling. Only intense political pushback has kept the 5-year plan from completion. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) held up MacGregor’s confirmation as Deputy Secretary to ensure the Trump administration would not allow drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico and off the east coast of Florida. Rubio then lifted the hold on MacGregor after conversations with the Trump administration.

However, under the Trump administration, most of the offshore drilling industry’s priority issues have been enacted through a series of rollbacks that put the environment and worker safety at risk including:

  • A rollback of an offshore oil rig safety rule that could help prevent a repeat of the 2010 BP oil spill, which killed 11 workers and devastated coastal ecosystems.
  • Giving the offshore oil industry nearly 1,700 exemptions to safety rules.
  • Giving oil companies a discount on fees to boost production at offshore oil wells.
  • Rolling back rules to protect taxpayers from incurring the cost of decommissioning unused offshore oil and gas rigs.
  • Easing regulations on high pressure, high temperature offshore drilling machinery. Drilling in ultra-deep water using this new and dangerous oil drilling technique, is growing in popularity in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Interior Department has also done favor after favor for companies that want to profit by drilling for oil and gas on public lands. In 2019, the Wilderness Society estimated that oil leases issued during the Trump administration could result in as much greenhouse gas emissions as all 28 members of the European union produce in one year. Regulatory changes include:

  • Pushing to allow oil drilling in the formerly off-limits Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, after Congress authorized doing so in the 2017 tax bill, though the administration missed its goal of selling the first oil leases in 2019.
  • Weakening the Endangered Species Act by making it harder to designate species that are likely to be threatened by future events such as climate change and by opening the door to analysis of the effect of endangered species designations on corporate interests such as developers or logging companies.
  • Rolling back rules and polices protecting clean air, water and wildlife to allow more drilling and mining on public lands, including getting rid of rules aimed at reducing methane leaks, boosting more oil leasing in the habitat of the vulnerable greater sage grouse and eliminating punishment for companies and local governments that kill migratory birds.
  • Eliminating punishment for companies and local governments that kill migratory birds. A former client of Bernhardt, the Independent Petroleum Producers Association, specifically requested this action in a September 2017 letter to Zinke.
