Latest top Pruitt aide to depart is EPA legal counsel

Pruitt had aide look into Chick-fil-A franchise opportunity for his wife report

Trump continued, "You know that, Scott". Perhaps world history. In the middle of April, almost two months ago, CNN put the list of Scott Pruitt scandals at 15.

According to a source close to Pruitt, the message being sent at the meeting was abundantly clear: "We love having Mr. Pruitt, but it's not meant for everyday use".

Pruitt is now the subject of multiple inquiries into his actions at the agency from ethics watchdogs, federal auditors and congressional committees.

Thomas Carper of DE, reiterated his call that Pruitt step down.

Pruitt in a statement called Hupp a "valued member of the EPA team from day one".

The Washington Post reported this week that Pruitt asked his staffer Sydney Hupp to reach out to Chick-fil-A corporate in May 2017, which she did.

Nadal completes fightback to reach 11th French Open semi-final
On the women's side, top-ranked Simona Halep will have another shot in the French Open final. Sharapova was the French Open champion in 2012 and 2014; Muguruza took the trophy in 2016.

Democrats quickly pounced on Pruitt's statement, accusing him of using religion to try to deflect from his misdeeds.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said Wednesday that Pruitt "has to be very careful" in order for people to trust him to "do the job without influence, one way or the other". Basically, while 14 billion pounds of garbage is dumped in the ocean every year and the United States is credited with producing 30 percent of the world's waste, our EPA head is more concerned with trying to buy a fast-food franchise for his wife. Three other senior Pruitt staffers resigned earlier this spring.

His comment spurred some deep feelings among many journalists for good reason: Wilcox is part of an administration that openly views the free press as the enemy, even as (or because) it uncovers levels of corruption Trump had promised he'd stamp out.

Pruitt's chief of staff, Ryan Jackson, and former top policy adviser Samantha Dravis are due to appear before the oversight committee's investigators later this month.

Pruitt, the former attorney general of Oklahoma, suggested the unending stream of news reports about him and new federal investigations were political.

"I just know there's a lot of talk of conflicts and we'll see how much the market can bear", he said.
