Michigan Inspector General to probe Keystone approval process

The Inspector General for the U.S. State Department has responded to a request from more than a dozen members of Congress for an investigation into the approval process for the Keystone XL pipeline, which critics say has been tainted by a cozy relationship between the agency and the company that owns the pipeline. Inspector General Harold Geisel told the legislators in a letter that he is initiating that investigation “to determine to what extent the Department and all other parties involved complied with federal laws and regulations relating to the Keystone XL pipeline permit process.” The investigation will include interviews with State Department personnel and a review of communications between the agency and TransCanada, the owners of the pipeline.

The investigation will include interviews with State Department personnel and a review of communications between the agency and TransCanada, the owners of the pipeline. Environmentalists have alleged that the agency was acting as a cheerleader for the project rather than an objective factfinder, partly due to the fact that the company was represented by Paul Elliott, a deputy campaign manager for Sec. of State Hillary Clinton during the 2008 presidential campaign.
