Teacher Confronts Pruitt, Urges Him To Resign Before Scandals Force Him Out

  • EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt

Wheeler is expected to serve in an acting capacity as head of the EPA until Trump nominates a new agency chief, who must then be confirmed by the Senate.

Pruitt remained silent while Mink spoke, according to the cellphone video shot by Mink's husband.

That quest included setting up a call with Chick-fil-A executives, in which he discussed her becoming a franchisee, as well as outreach to a conservative judicial group that eventually hired Marlyn Pruitt.

White House officials continue to be perplexed by Pruitt's good standing with the President.

John Konkus, an EPA spokesperson, said in a statement that the agency has not spoken with Dravis or the committee about her testimony, which was reported in The Washington Post.

President Donald Trump announced Pruitt's resignation on Twitter. But he's done a fantastic job running the EPA, which is very overriding.

Along with Trump, who once said that "global warming was created by and for the Chinese", Pruitt oversaw the efforts to dismantle major climate regulations. "When we have an announcement, we'll make it". 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.

Pruitt also is accused of excessive spending on travel, staying at expensive hotels while traveling - even if they exceeded allowable federal spending limits - and telling staff to book flights on Delta Air Lines so he could accrue frequent flier mileage.

Arsenal transfer rumours: Steven N'Zonzi, Andre Gomes and Lucas Torreira
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Arsenal announced the signing of Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund . The Gabon worldwide featured alongside the likes of Alexandre Lacazette, Aaron Ramsey and new signing Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

Minoli wrote that he has referred "a number" of those matters to the EPA's inspector general.

This spring, Gowdy said Pruitt was not forthcoming with records. He also demanded 24-hour-a-day protection from armed officers, resulting in a swollen 20-member security detail that blew through overtime budgets and racked up expenses of more than $3 million. Democrats grilled him for allegedly paying $6,100 for a room in a condo owned by Vicki Hart, who is married to J. Steven Hart, an energy lobbyist who represents industries the agency regulates.

Both Pruitt and the lobbyist, Steven Hart, denied he had conducted any recent business with EPA.

Pruitt's offer came in the spring while Trump was publicly castigating Sessions for recusing himself from overseeing the Russian Federation investigation.

The EPA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Several reviews have to do with Pruitt's use of email.

On Monday, the Washington Post reported that Pruitt had pressured two of his top aides to help secure a $200,000 salary job for his wife, Marlyn Pruitt.
