EPA Chief Scott Pruitt Resigns, Trump Tweets

Embattled EPA chief Scott Pruitt resigns amid scandals

"I look forward to working with our next EPA Administrator to protect the environmental interests of our district, which is the proud home of the Adirondacks". I don't want to be a distraction. 'I think Oklahomans still love him, support him and trust him. For months he had ranked as a personal confidant and influential policy adviser to the president, commiserating with Trump over negative stories and indiscreet aides while praising the commander-in-chief for his intelligence and political acumen.

In a tweet, President Donald Trump said that Andrew Wheeler, the deputy administrator, will serve as its acting chief.

"Scott Pruitt did an outstanding job inside of the EPA", the president said Thursday.

Pruitt's defenders were focused on something else entirely. The top White House aide was reportedly "obsessed" with giving him the boot.

Netflix is testing out a more expensive tier
Tutto Android has obtained leaked Netflix promotional material that suggests the Netflix Premium tier is changing. The ever-expanding company, which is now led by CEO Reed Hastings, has 125 million memberships in 190 countries.

A conservative watchdog has called for Waters to be investigated by the Office of Congressional Ethics for breaching the House rules of conduct.

That'll do, Scott Pruitt.

"[Wheeler] has the relationships on Capitol Hill", Dempsey said. "In the meantime, I know Assistant Administrator Andrew Wheeler is well prepared to continue the progress already made under President Trump".

Pallone last month accused Pruitt's EPA of "betraying the bipartisan effort" that led to passage led to a law updating federal chemical regulations and was named for the late U.S. Sen. Pruitt then began booking his own TV appearances, these people said. Pruitt and his activities have been the subject of numerous investigations by the EPA's inspector general, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, the Government Accountability Office, the White House Office of Management and Budget, and the U.S. Office of Special Counsel. The report has not yet been published, officials said.

Aaron Finch belts highest ever T20 score as Australia wallop Zimbabwe
Aaron Finch and felow opener DJM Short also recorded the highest partnership of 223 the first 200 plus score by any team in T20Is. Finch held the previous record of highest individual knock when he made 156 against England at Southampton in 2013.

According to The Washington Post, Pruitt pushed to find his wife a well-paying job with a politically connected group. 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. Wheeler is a former energy industry lobbyist who worked on behalf of Murray Energy, owned by Robert Murray, a Trump supporter who donated $300,000 to the president's inauguration.

Served as longtime aide to Sen. And Pruitt reinforced some of Trump's strongest-held beliefs: that climate change was a hoax, that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was not serving him well and that the United States had been ripped off by worldwide trade partners, curent and former officials said. And later: "I count it a blessing to be serving you in any capacity".

"It is extremely hard for me to cease serving you in this role first because I count it as a blessing to be serving you in any capacity, but also because of the transformative work that is occurring", he wrote in his resignation letter obtained by Fox News. "This is one of the only big blunders of his administration". To say that the EPA chief has been embroiled in scandal is an understatement. "He is giving in to the loony left and is making a huge mistake".
