WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump plans to nominate acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, a former Boeing Co executive, as his defense secretary, breaking with tradition by choosing a Pentagon chief who made a career at a top defense company, the White House said on Thursday.

Shanahan had been under investigation by the Pentagon inspector general for allegedly seeking preferential treatment of Boeing while at the Pentagon but he was recently cleared of wrongdoing.
