Raja Krishnamoorthi Wants to Know If Scott Pruitt Used EPA Resources to Retaliate Against Current and Former Staff

Raja Krishnamoorthi Wants to Know If Scott Pruitt Used EPA Resources to Retaliate Against Current and Former Staff

Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) wants Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to convene hearings on reports that EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt reportedly used agency resources to attack current and former aides. Krishnamoorthi’s letter concerns a June 28th article by the Daily Beast which reported that Pruitt “actively undermined the reputations of former and current staffers, with campaigns that former senior EPA officials have described as ‘ratf*cking’.” In his letter, the Congressman writes, “When longtime aide Millan Hupp gave truthful evidence before a Congressional committee, as she was legally required to do, she was forced out of the EPA. Even after she left, reports state that Mr. Pruitt continued to damage her career by warning potential employers away from hiring her. ... I urge you to convene hearings to reveal the full extent of this Administration’s use of official resources and executive power to defame and retaliate against whistleblowers and others who reveal ongoing ethics violations in the Trump Administration.” More here.
