Scott Pruitt resigned. Twitter was ready

White House looking into Scott Pruitt using staff for personal use

Andrew Wheeler, a former coal lobbyist who has been the Environmental Protection Agency's deputy director, will temporarily step into the top role following Scott Pruitt's resignation.

Scott Pruitt survived months of misconduct allegations by preserving his relationship with one person at all costs: President Donald Trump. Instead he took the opportunity to declare his loyalty to Trump and any of his future pursuits.

The new EPA administrator's other affiliations include serving as the vice president of the Washington Coal Club, an organization made up of 300 coal producers, lawmakers, and energy industry executives, according to environmental policy non-profit the National Resources Defense Council. "I believe you are serving as President today because of God's providence", Pruitt wrote in his resignation letter.

At the time, the president was feuding with Sessions over the AG's decision to recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigation, according to CNN, which cited three people familiar with Pruitt's pitch.

In a tweet Thursday afternoon, Trump said he had accepted the resignation of the beleaguered EPA chief.

Pruitt was forced out following a series of revelations involving pricey trips with first-class airline seats and unusual security spending, including a US$43,000 soundproof booth for making private phone calls.

Her post and video has been viewed over half a million times.

Pruitt's tenure at the EPA was rocky from the start.

Wheeler also had a number of other high-profile clients in the energy sector, according to the Washington Post, and many of these companies have an interest in the regulations Wheeler will now make decisions about as acting head of the EPA. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price resigned previous year after it was reported he spent taxpayer funds on charter flights. John Barrasso (R-WY) and James Inhofe (R-OK) - who voted to approve his nomination in February.

"It was a secret. and they would decide what to nix from the public calendar".

He has been under scrutiny for renting an apartment with ties to a fossil fuels lobbyist.

Before he joined Faegre Baker Daniels in 2009, Wheeler spent 14 years as a staffer for Sen.

The departure follows years worth of constant scandal and public outrage for Pruitt's constant profligate spending and insider dealing.

"It has become increasingly challenging for the EPA to carry out its mission with the administrator under investigation", said Barrasso, who is from Wyoming. This differs from Pruitt, who drew attention not only for his aggressive moves to cut back regulations but also for mounting scandals and questions about potential ethics violations.

The EPA was established in 1970 to protect human health and the environment.

Mr. Pruitt had been seen Wednesday at the White House celebrating Independence Day at an annual picnic for military families at the president's invitation.
