Here we go.

Two of Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt’s closest aides at the agency resigned on Wednesday, an EPA official confirms to CNN.

Sarah Greenwalt, a senior counselor to Pruitt, and Millan Hupp, who worked as Pruitt’s scheduling director, both resigned on Wednesday, the official told CNN. Their resignations are set to take effect late this week and early next week, the source said.

Hupp recently testified before the House oversight committee that she did many personal tasks for Pruitt, including house-hunting and inquiring about obtaining a used Trump hotel mattress.

Their resignations leave Pruitt increasingly isolated at the EPA, where he has lost the confidence of most of the agency’s career staff and many conservative political appointees who feel that Pruitt’s ethical lapses have done a disservice to the President’s agenda.

Ouch!

As it turns out one of those personal tasks that Pruitt asked of his employees was to reach out to Chick-fil-A for a possible franchise opportunity for his wife. 

Which is both illegal and unethical.

However, Pruit admitted to admitted to it in an interview:


I know, right?

As if all of this was not bad enough (And it is) a judge has also demanded that the EPA provide their evidence to support Pruitt’s claim that climate change is not man-made. 

Courtesy of Newsweek:

A Washington D.C. judge ordered Friday the Environmental Protection Agency must comply with a legal request to produce scientific evidence backing the EPA administrator’s claims about climate change.

The Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, or PEER, filed a Freedom of Information Act Request to the EPA, which seeks the release of studies and documents that support EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s claim that human activity is not the largest factor causing global climate change.

Yeah, you know what? I’d like to see that “scientific” evidence as well. 

More popcorn?

    “Nicolle Wallace was one hundred percent correct. The Trump enablers who indulge his conspiracy theories. The people who stand by and do nothing while laws are broken and democratic norms are shattered. Those people are going to have blood on their hands because informants or undercover agents killed.

    When Trump ran for president, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan assured the country that they would be there to keep Trump from going off of the rails, but what has happened is that both the Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority Leader have put party (tax cuts for the rich) ahead of the country. They have both been too weak to stand up to Trump.”

    “A new lawsuit to be filed by 200 congressional Democrats charges that President Donald Trump has been violating the United States Constitution since taking office by accepting financial benefits from foreign governments.”

      Nicolle Wallace was 100% correct about $arah, too!

      Anon at 2:46 pm. I think that the Democrats in Congress are doing everything they can but they are not in a majority in either house. Last night Ryan and his cowardly Republican co-conspiratorial members of the House voted a $800 million cut to Medicare. They did it late at night so it wouldn’t appear anywhere in today’s – Friday’s – newspapers. They did the same thing recently to the children’s health program. Always late at night. This is how fascists run a country. In secret. In the dark.
