The federal government had “no role” in a contract given to Whitefish Energy to help Puerto Rico repair its electrical grid after Hurricane Maria, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday. Whitefish is headquartered in the Montana hometown of Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. Sanders said President Donald Trump asked Zinke if he had involvement, and Zinke said he did not.
