Pruitt Asked Trump to Fire Sessions, Name Him AG Temporarily

Another Trump Official Under Fire Asked To Resign By Woman At Restaurant

A mother holding a toddler in her arms confronted Scott Pruitt, the Environmental Protection Agency administrator, on Monday as he was dining out in a restaurant in Washington, D.C. - and asked him to resign "before your scandals push you out".

Pruitt offered to temporarily replaceSessions for 210 days under the Vacancies Reform Act, a law passed in 1998 allowing the president to temporarily fill vacancies in the White House. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, and White House adviser Stephen Miller were harassed and forced to leave restaurants, in separate incidents.

An EPA spokesperson said that the agency "will not be commenting on anonymous sources who are working to distract Americans from the Trump Administration's accomplishments on regulatory certainty and environmental stewardship".

Goggins is his typical hilariously sleazy self, while John-Kamen's more overtly dramatic performance fits her character. Ant-Man and the Wasp is set to hit cinemas on the 6th July and is sure to be another hit for the superhero studio.

Trump has publicly criticized Sessions since a year ago, mainly for recusing himself from the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. "What I did was perfectly civil, and other people can do the same thing". But he's done a fantastic job running the EPA, which is very overriding. "But I am not happy about it". There are 13 federal investigations, including the committee inquiry, into Pruitt's actions at the agency.

Pruitt, who is facing at least 14 federal probes, and his scandals have plagued the administration for months. In one case, a meeting with the CEO of coal producer Alliance Resource Partners was listed on Pruitt's secret calendar but not his public calendar.

Chmielewski told CNN that he was booted from the EPA after he asked too many questions about Pruitt's spending habits and management.

Barcelona are not leaving anything to chance when it comes to their desire to sign Willian from Chelsea this summer. Chelsea will sell Willian to United this summer - but only if they get Anthony Martial in return.

Pruitt, who has destroyed U.S. environmental regulation and has bluntly refused to acknowledge climate change science, appeared speechless as Mink spent about 90 seconds listing some of the numerous misuse of funds and corruption scandals he has also faced since becoming head of the EPA under Donald Trump.

A comparison of internal EPA records and Pruitt's public calendar showed a discrepancy including more than two dozen meetings, phone calls, or events being kept off the public calendar.

Trump's loyalty to Pruitt has maddened Democrats, but EPA officials claim his ability to beat back detractors is what's preventing the president from pulling the trigger. Attorney General Leslie Rutledge undoubtedly remains a fan of Pruitt, precisely for the damage he's doing to the environment.
