Follow along with Pruitt's Congressional hearing! #FirePruitt

House Commerce & Energy chairman @RepShimkus just said he doesn't want "ideologues"to run EPA.

Strange because that's exactly what Scott Pruitt is...

"Pruitt's mounting scandals & credible investigations from the highest levels cannot go unscrutinized." — @RepPaulTonko 👏

"Pruitt clearly does not believe in the @EPA mission and has merely used his position to enrich himself & his corporate friends" — @FrankPallone


Thank you @FrankPallone for telling Pruitt he needs to stop casting blame to his staffers.

Pruitt cannot weasel his way out from under this mountain of scandal by lying. #FirePruitt…
Pruitt says he wants to establish the hard facts & that he has nothing to hide—says ethical breaches are part of his "learning process"
Pruitt just said he knew of pay raises for his favorite staffers—just not the amount.

In an interview a few weeks ago, he said he was not aware of the raises at all...
Pruitt's latest policy actively suppresses long-standing & accepted science.

Pruitt continues to tout the policy as 'transparent' (it's not)…
Reminder: Scott Pruitt's statements about staffers' pay raises today are completely different than what he said two weeks ago.

.@RepJoeBarton says there's widespread opposition to Pruitt because Dems want to "attack personalities"

Correction: There is bipartisan opposition to Pruitt because he is corrupt.
.@foe_us President & staffers just got called out for holding up shirts calling for Pruitt's impeachment and flyers calling out his corruption.

Spot our poster on the livestream! #FirePruitt
.@RepMcKinley just said calling out Scott Pruitt's corruption is 'McCarthyism'
.@ScottPetersSD questioned Pruitt on his choice to appoint his personal banker—who was banned from the banking industry for life—to run Superfund.

This article provides some background on this controversial pick.…
Rep @PeteOlson says corruption issues with Pruitt can't be solved by Congress.

Incorrect. Congress has the power to impeach civil officers (including EPA administrator). #FirePruitt
Pruitt just told @RepDianaDeGette he thinks public officials should be held to the highest standard of ethics.

His long list of ethical breaches implies otherwise. #FirePruitt
GOP committee members continue to dismiss Scott Pruitt's scandals and criticize Dems for holding Pruitt accountable.

@RepDianaDeGette sums up why Congress cannot go easy on Pruitt. #FirePruitt

"Deep pockets are a prerequisite to getting a meeting on Pruitt's calendar" — @RepMcNerney, calling out Scott Pruitt's 'pay-to-play' agenda.…
We're ready to greet Pruitt after his long day of Congressional hearings.


During his hearing today, Pruitt has consistently cast blame for his ethical breaches to his critics & the media.…
.@RepKevinCramer just told Pruitt he loves the "depth of knowledge" Pruitt has.

Pruitt has spent this entire hearing claiming he was not aware of specific policies or statistics.
According to @RepKevinCramer, Scott Pruitt is the epitome of 'draining the swamp'

Pretty sure making sweetheart deals with Big Oil, prioritizing profit over public opinion & wasting taxpayer dollars makes him a swamp monster.

#FirePruitt #PruittHearing…
Responding to @RepCardenas, Pruitt casts blame on his $43K phone booth to his staffers.

Pruitt cannot weasel his way out from under this mountain of scandal by lying and deflecting responsibility. #FirePruitt #PruittHearing…
According to @GreggHarper, calling out Pruitt's corruption is a "political blood sport"

There is bipartisan opposition to Pruitt—this is not a partisan issue.

#PruittHearing #FirePruitt…
"You have a solid record of breaking ethics from the state level to federal government. It's embarrassing & offensive." — @RepAnnaEshoo

#FirePruitt #PruittHearing
.@RepAnnaEshoo calls out Pruitt for dodging questions, telling him "you can't out-talk me, sir" and asserts "I'm not a fool - you're avoiding answering our questions."

Pretty much sums up the entire #PruittHearing

.@Interior is so poorly run that its Inspector General can't even tell whether @SecretaryZinke & staff are breaking the law.

“I am stunned by the level of incompetence."…
Interior's IG looked into the mass reassignment of employees—many believe they were transferred due to their prior work on climate change, energy or conservation.

Unsurprisingly, these reassignments were driven by politics rather than informed decisions.
