Dem Senator Files Bogus Complaint Against EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse claims that EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt was not forthcoming during his confirmation hearing. The facts tell a different story.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) is partnering with a liberal 501(c)(3) group to file a bogus complaint against Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt.

The complaint, which was filed by the Center for Biological Diversity, alleges that Pruitt was not forthcoming during his Senate confirmation hearing in front of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. The complaint aims to get Pruitt disbarred.

The claim that Pruitt was not forthcoming is outrageous considering Pruitt answered 1,200 questions during the hearing and in written testimony, which are the most questions ever answered by an EPA nominee.

If that was not enough transparency for Whitehouse, Pruitt also released all of his emails to the committee and clarified any confusion about his email accounts.

The Center for Biological Diversity is classified as a 501(c)(3), meaning that does not have to publicly disclose its donors. However, the group’s website is littered with anti-Republican language.
