Woman Who Confronted EPA's Pruitt At Restaurant Speaks Out

Woman Who Confronted EPA's Pruitt At Restaurant Speaks Out

Scott Pruitt, who has been the focus of multiple ethics investigations during his almost 17-month tenure as head of the Environmental Protection Agency, resigned Thursday.

"Outstanding? Instead of protecting our air and water (Scott Pruitt) gave polluters unprecedented influence and access to the EPA", he said in response to Trump's praise of the outgoing EPA chief.

Scott Pruitt, the scandal-ridden head of the Environmental Protection Agency and arguably the most anti-LGBT Cabinet member, has resigned.

While the long-overdue departure of ceaselessly corrupt EPA chief Scott Pruitt on Thursday was undoubtedly a small win for the public and the planet, environmentalists were quick to note that "there's no happy ending to this story" as Pruitt is being replaced by former coal lobbyist Andrew Wheeler, who worked for years as an aide to fervent climate-denier Sen.

The president added that he has "no doubt that Andy will continue on with our great and lasting EPA agenda". We have made tremendous progress and the future of the EPA is very bright!'

Mr. Pruitt had been seen Wednesday at the White House celebrating Independence Day at an annual picnic for military families at the president's invitation. In fact, he penned an op-ed in January 2017 in which he lauded the former Oklahoma Attorney General as the flawless man to undo environmental regulations put in place by the Obama administration. The Government Accountability Office found that he violated spending laws by installing a $43,000 soundproof phone booth in his office - one of the more than half-dozen federal inquiries launched into his management and expenditures.

According to United Kingdom news outlet the Metro , Barcelona are ready to offer three players to Chelsea in exchange for Willian. Brazil's No.1 is now away at the World Cup in Russian Federation , meaning no switch is imminent.

Pruitt and Mink's exchange is just one of many in recent history where Trump administration officials have been confronted by concerned citizens.

Pruitt was equally complimentary of the president in his resignation letter, stating that God both led Trump to the White House and him to serve in Trump's administration. Many of the EPA regulations Pruitt scraped or delayed had not yet taken effect, and the tens of thousands of lost coal mining jobs the president pledged to bring back never materialized. Pruitt also maintained incomplete official calendars to hide his...

The Washington Post reported Pruitt had aides also try to get her a job at the Republican Attorneys General Association with a salary topping $200,000 per year.

Pruitt faced harsh criticisms from House lawmakers over them during April appearances before Congressional committees, where he discussed the EPA's budget. It was co-owned by the wife of a veteran fossil fuels lobbyist whose firm had sought regulatory rollbacks from EPA.

Although Pruitt's exit had always been expected, a member of Pruitt's staff told Newsmax an hour before Trump's tweet that "he's not going anywhere anytime soon".

Trump appointed him to lead the agency, and the Senate confirmed him in February 2017 with a 54-46 vote. Mr. Pruitt was bad for the environment and bad for wildlife.
