"Seems the flawless emblem of the Trump years". Never mind that the career ethics official at the EPA cleared the arrangement.
Pruitt defended his decision at EPA headquarters on Tuesday.
Pruitt's decision to sign off on the project-an expansion of Enbridge's Alberta Clipper pipeline, which runs from Alberta, Canada to Wisconsin-came in March of a year ago, when his lease with the Washington, DC condo was still in effect. "The fine was the second-largest in the history of the Clean Water Act, behind the penalty imposed after the Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico". The dealership, Pohanka Chevrolet, would have been "a more public setting that might have exposed him to questions about the lease arrangement, or about his first-class air travel at taxpayer expense", the Times notes, but also, "other Chevrolet dealers were uneasy about seeing the Chevy brand used as a backdrop to Mr. Pruitt's announcement". President Donald Trump has said he wants to roll back the emission standards to help jump-start the USA automotive industry.
In just the past few weeks it's been reported that Pruitt has taken expensive first class plane trips for official and unofficial business; required round-the-clock security detail - including during a trip to Disney with his family; rented a cheap room from an energy lobbyist's wife for part of a year ago; and defied orders from the White House in order to give huge raises to two of his favorite aides.
When asked if he knew of the raises, Pruitt said, "I did not know that they got the pay raises until yesterday". He's always working. He's always focused on the agenda.
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt said in a heated interview with Fox News that he doesn't know who at the agency raised the pay of two aides in defiance of the White House - the latest controversy to engulf him.
"All Americans. deserve to enjoy fuel-efficient, low-emission cars and light trucks that save money on gas, improve our health and support American jobs", the attorneys general from 11 states said in a statement responding to Pruitt's proposal on Monday to ease the Obama-era standards. This week new reports suggested he rented a Capitol Hill condo from a lobbyist's wife for just $50 a day.
