Woman confronts EPA chief at Washington restaurant

A concerned mother confronted Trump's Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt in a DC restaurant this week, urging him to resign.

This latest episode follows on the heels of the harassment or pestering (or worse) of other Trump officials as they tried to enjoy some private time at restaurants with their families and others, including White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) Kirstjen Nielsen.

Chmielewski said in an interview last month that he was in Jackson's office when Hupp approached Pruitt's chief of staff to explain that the period for transition reimbursements had expired and that Pruitt had not covered the bill.

According to CNN, advisers dismissed the proposal, but Trump floated replacing Sessions with Pruitt as recently as April. "Pruitt has done a good job at deregulating the economy".

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.

President Donald Trump announced Thursday that his embattled Environmental Protection Agency chief, Scott Pruitt, had resigned.

"We have no doubt that Trump will appoint another fossil fuel industry stooge as Pruitt's replacement", Doyle continued, while casting doubt on Deputy EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler's ability to uphold the agency's mission leading the EPA in the interim.

The veteran Barcelona midfielder came off the bench and nearly won the game with an 85th-minute shot well saved by Akinfeev. Nonetheless, Artem Dzyuba was able to draw a penalty from Gerard Pique who was called for a handball just inside the box.

Like President Trump, Pruitt voiced skepticism about mainstream climate science and was a fierce critic of the Paris climate agreement.

During Pruitt's tenure, the former Oklahoma attorney general gained headlines for his aggressive push to roll back dozens of regulations governing clean air and water, and fighting against Obama-era rules focused on limiting carbon emissions.

Pruitt incurred a sizable number of investigations into his spending and practices at EPA, including inquiries by the House, Senate, the EPA itself and the White House. The EPA head has also faced questions on his spending in relation to items such as a soundproof booth in his office, his security detail, a trip to Morocco, and excessive staff pay raises.

Both Pruitt and the lobbyist, Steven Hart, denied he had conducted any recent business with EPA. He made swamp creatures blush with his shameless excesses.
