EPA staffers say Pruitt sent them on errands to get snack food

EPA staffers say Pruitt sent them on errands to get snack food

Pruitt called Greenwalt a "tremendous leader".

The Office of Cabinet Affairs, a division of the executive office of the president that oversees all cabinet agencies, has held multiple meetings with Pruitt's EPA leadership including meetings with Pruitt and his chief of staff, Ryan Jackson. Pruitt must have treated her pretty badly to finally get her to quit what's really a pretty plum job.

John Kennedy blasted embattled Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt for "acting like a moron" Thursday, warning that Pruitt's ongoing ethics scandals are "hurting the President, and therefore he's hurting the country". Others said there was growing frustration in their ranks about Mr. Pruitt's behavior.

House Democrats have been calling for Pruitt to be fired for months. But don't worry, it's all a part of the changes that the administration is making, according to Pruitt: "There's significant changes happening across, not only at the EPA, but across this administration and it's needed". It was members of Pruitt's security detail who carried out the search for his preferred moisturizer. The EPA gave no reason for her departure.

Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) called for Pruitt to resign earlier this week, saying, " He is about as swampy as you get here in Washington, D.C. And, if the President wants to drain the swamp he needs to take a look at his own cabinet".

Then again, Pruitt might just bankrupt the agency before December.

Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt had an agency staffer reach out to Chick-fil-A on government email about a "potential business opportunity," emails show. EPA is doing really well. "Somebody has to say that about you a little bit, you know that, Scott". Though ultimately unsuccessful, the pursuit of a restaurant tops the list because it represents an attempt to use Scott Pruitt's position to establish a personal profit stream that could continue long after his time in office. But you have done - I tell you, the EPA is doing so well.

The protective detail cost taxpayers almost $3.5 million during Pruitt's first year on the job, according to EPA data, and is roughly triple the size of those of his immediate predecessors.
