Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said Thursday that he has fired four senior management leaders at his agency and he’ll continue to fire people to weed out anyone guilty of inappropriate behavior.

“I’ve already removed four senior leaders that were guilty of inappropriate behavior, and I will remove 400 more if necessary. Intimidation, harassment and discrimination is a cancer to any organization. However deep it goes, we will remove it from Interior,” Mr. Zinke said in a video posted on the agency’s website.

A spokeswoman told ABC News that the agency could not provide anymore details on what caused these four employees to be terminated but said they “abused their authority to intimidate or harass fellow employees,” including sexual harassment.
