Trump Not Planning to Fire EPA Chief Scott Pruitt

The cons outweigh the pros, wouldn't you say? She went to the EPA after Pruitt became its administrator in early 2017, working to rewrite the Obama-era Waters of the USA rule, or WOTUS, which expanded federal jurisdiction over water.

"We've been looking into all the accusations but nevertheless Trump isn't fazed", said one official, "you would have thought after Chick-Fil-A that would have done it but he's not going anywhere".

Okay, everybody, this latest Scott Pruitt scandal has gotten a little out of hand. EPA is doing so well.

According to two officials who spoke anonymously with the Washington Post, Pruitt had his 24/7 security detail carry out several tasks beyond the scope of their jobs, including picking up his dry cleaning (without him) and facilitating a wild goose chase to Ritz-Carlton Hotels in search of his favorite lotion (with him).

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), a member of GOP Senate leadership, didn't explicitly say Pruitt should be fired, but called Pruitt's behavior a "distraction".

On Thursday, The Washington Post reported on another use of government resources to procure a luxury hotel item for Pruitt. Joni Ernst, a staunchly conservative Republican from Iowa, suggested Pruitt should resign.

Pruitt is the target of a series of federal ethics investigations. Pruitt apparently dined there so frequently that the White House Cabinet affairs team told agency chiefs of staff during a meeting past year that Cabinet members should consider eating elsewhere sometimes. Hupp and Greenwalt resigned this week, the reasons for their departures is still unclear.

Pruitt in appearances before congressional hearings this spring has denied responsibility for any ethical lapses, saying subordinates made those decisions.

Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight committee investigating Pruitt, said Hupp shouldn't have to take the fall for her boss.

Pruitt also faced backlash after a letter to GOP Representative Trey Goudy of SC, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, showed the EPA administrator told an aide to buy an old mattress from Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C.

"The administrator didn't mention a specific topic but I will touch base with him to see if there is one", Hupp said in one email.
