An investigation has been launched to determine whether acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan violated ethics rules by promoting products made by his former employer, Boeing, while serving in his current role at the Pentagon, the Defense Department's inspector general announced Wednesday.

Shanahan, who worked at Boeing for more than 30 years prior to taking a job at the Pentagon, has faced accusations of being overly warm toward the company and claims that he "disparaged the company's competitors to his subordinates" from a federal watchdog called Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics.
