EPA workforce 'disgusted' by Scott Pruitt's scandals and priorities, official saysA demoralized workforce watching as its agency is dismantled by the very people charged to lead it: That is the grim state of affairs depicted by John J. O’Grady, a longtime employee in the Chicago field office of the Environmental Protection Agency, which is tasked with protecting the nation’s air and water, while preventing the exposure of citizens to harmful chemicals. The agency is doing none of that, in O’Grady’s telling, with career officials watching in dismay as EPA administrator Scott Pruitt seemingly lurches from one scandal to another while doing the bidding of oil barons and the chemical lobby. “Morale is not good,� O’Grady said of the agency’s 14,000 employees.

EPA chief rejects ethics scandals as lies, distractions

EPA chief rejects ethics scandals as lies, distractionsBy Valerie Volcovici and Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt told lawmakers during a heated congressional hearing on Thursday that allegations of ethical missteps plaguing his tenure are untrue and are intended to derail President Donald Trump’s agenda. “Facts are facts and fiction is fiction,” the embattled agency chief told a House of Representatives panel in the first of two hearings at which he appeared. “And a lie doesn’t become true just because it appears in the front page of the newspaper.” Pruitt faced tough questions from Democrats and fellow Republicans in his high-stakes testimony as he seeks to avoid becoming the latest in a long list of Cabinet members and senior White House officials who have either quit or been fired by Trump.
