Betrayal of the American People

Scott Pruitt, President Trump’s beleaguered Environmental Protection Agency administrator, faced tough questioning at a Senate hearing Wednesday that included one Democrat calling Pruitt’s entire tenure a “betrayal of the American people…”

“Every day there seems to be a new scandal and you at dead center,” New Mexico Democrat Tom Udall told Pruitt. “Your tenure at the EPA is a betrayal of the American people. You have used your office to enrich yourself at the expense of the American taxpayer and public health.”

Udall lives up to his family’s tradition, a Senator’s responsibility to the people who he represents and the nation as a whole. Unlike scumbags like Pruitt and our fake president.

  1. Pepé Le Pew says:

    “A prominent GOP donor and President Donald Trump supporter helped EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt choose the head of the influential scientific body charged with reviewing EPA’s regulations, according to newly released documents.” https://www.politico.com/story/2018/06/08/doug-deason-trump-donor-helped-pruitt-pick-epa-science-advisers-603450
    “Doug Deason, a Dallas businessman, submitted a list of names of candidates for Pruitt’s Science Advisory Board in August that had been supplied by the conservative Texas Public Policy Foundation, on whose board he serves.
    Deason and his father, Darwin Deason, donated over $900,000 in 2016 alone to help elect Trump and other Republican candidates. His influence over the SAB appointments is the latest example of the high-level access that politically powerful conservatives have to the EPA administrator. Deason is known to be a friend of Pruitt’s.
    Deason and his wife have also been donors to the Koch brothers’ network of organizations that raise money for Republicans running for state and national office.”
    “Special interests have never been more powerful in Washington,” Holly and Doug Deason wrote in an op-ed for the Dallas Morning News. “Both Democrats and Republicans hand out corporate welfare like it’s candy.” https://www.dallasnews.com/opinion/commentary/2015/02/02/holly-and-doug-deason-what-do-the-koch-brothers-want-to-defend-the-american-dream
