Inhofe: "Something Needs to Happen" to Address Pruitt's Mounting Troubles

Inhofe:

The association's president, Troy Knecht, of Houghton, said times are tough enough for farmers and producers in the state, let alone having potential issues with the EPA on ethanol production. "From the Renewable Fuel Standard to the so-called 'Clean Power Plan, ' we are working hard to fulfill the agency's true mission while providing certainty to stakeholders in South Dakota and across the country".

Among the speakers was Representative Kent Peterson of Salem, who had a message for Pruitt....

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is facing fresh skepticism among Republicans, including one of his staunchest supporters from the Sooner State. "It's been very quiet. You know that and I know that, and evidence proves that E15 is fantastic for vehicles".

"It's above and beyond anything I'm aware of, with respect to any government employee, " she said, with the fact that Leo accompanied Pruitt on the trip to Italy making the situation even more problematic.

"It's important to hear directly from the community that EPA regulates, and today we heard from farmers and utility workers about the impact of the Agency's work", Pruitt said in a statement. "But we have to ask you why can't you put that same freedom-loving approach to bear on E15?" The EPA moved earlier this year to block that measure, which has been roundly criticized in South Dakota since it was created.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham thinks Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has "gotta go" in the wake of new reports he tapped GOP donors to help his wife find a job.

When he was done bouncing back and forth across the putting surface, he tapped in for a quintuple-bogey 9. Not even Johnson was immune from mistakes, however, dropping shots on the 12th and 14th holes.


A conservative nonprofit group based in Iowa also launched a 30-second ad calling for Pruitt's resignation, describing him as a "swamp monster" who is "embarrassing President Trump", the Washington Post reported.

Later in the day, the Oklahoman's support dwindled from one his allies, U.S. Sen. Inhofe, in turn, said, "It hurts me to say this, but I agree 100% with you".

President Donald Trump expressed support for Pruitt last Friday, telling reporters the administrator was "doing a great job within the walls of the EPA" while "being attacked very viciously by the press".

Probes include reviews of his travel expenses, personal security and other allegations of ethical concerns, such as Pruitt's below-market-rate lease with a lobbyist couple, one of whom represented a client before the EPA.

The JCN has donated millions of dollars to political organizations associated with Pruitt since 2013, the Post reported.
