WHAT HAPPENED TO SCOTT PRUITT?  THE SCUMBAG BEAT THE RAPS!

(CNN)Scott Pruitt's resignation as Environmental Protection Agency administrator thwarted multiple investigations into his conduct in office, according to an inspector general report obtained by CNN. 

The investigations included: the "Administrator renting a room in a townhouse owned by a lobbyist's wife"; that Pruitt "had subordinates at the EPA assist him in finding personal housing; that he used his official position and EPA staff to seek a 'business opportunity' for his wife with Chick-fil-A, a fast-food restaurant chain; that he enlisted subordinates at the EPA to secure a mattress for his personal use; and that he had his security detail run errands for him." 

In each of those cases, "Mr. Pruitt resigned prior to being interviewed by investigators. For that reason, the (EPA Office of the Inspector General) deemed that the result of the investigation was inconclusive. The case will be closed."

In an additional case, investigators found "nothing of investigative merit supporting the allegation" that EPA ethics officials had been pressured into approving Pruitt's lease. 

"Investigators interviewed potential victims, who stated that they did not feel pressured into rendering opinions pertaining to the lodging agreement," the report said. 

A spokesman for the inspector general's office declined to comment prior to the document's public release on Friday. The Washington Post first revealed the findings of the report late Thursday. 

Pruitt resigned from the agency in early July under a cloud of ethics scandals. The office of Inspector General Arthur Elkins indicated soon afterward that several of the probes involving Pruitt would continue. Several involved potential misuse of agency funds or agency staff.   Elkins has since retired. The report is signed by his successor, acting Inspector General Charles Sheehan. 

In a message to Congress within the report, Sheehan notes that the agency had additional work involving allegations against Pruitt that "was not initiated ... due to Administrator Pruitt's resignation." 

It did note that two audits involving Pruitt had been completed: one involving large raises given to his aides, and another involving his security detail. 


DESTROYED THE ENVIRONMENT
During his time at EPA, Pruitt has worked to carry out key elements of President Donald Trump’s agenda, overseeing a rollback of Obama-era environmental regulations.  He has destroyed and endangered more than he did good.  But he has also been caught up in a series of unfolding controversies over everything from first-class travel, security expenses, and a decision to rent a room in Washington, DC, tied to an energy lobbyist. Just like his boss and Savior, the other Scumbag T-RUMP.

When Pruitt took up his post at EPA, he was already a controversial figure. As Oklahoma attorney general, he sued the agency he now leads over environmental regulations and suggested that the debate over global warming is "far from settled." 

• The $43,000 the EPA spent to purchase and install a soundproof booth in Pruitt's office violated federal spending law, according to the Government Accountability Office. The EPA was required to notify Congress before spending more than $5,000 on office improvements, GAO found, although EPA disputed that requirement applies to the privacy booth. 

• The EPA chief of staff, Ryan Jackson, signed on Pruitt's behalf the authorization of large raises to two close aides, internal documents show. Pruitt has maintained he was unaware of the raises and planned to reverse them, although the agency's Inspector General found no evidence the raises have been rescinded. The Atlantic has reported that Pruitt defied the White House to grant the raises. 

• The EPA Inspector General is probing Pruitt's travel practices. The review began following reports Pruitt would frequently travel home to Oklahoma on the taxpayers' dime. The IG twice expanded the probe, first as the agency acknowledged Pruitt used both a private plane and military jet to travel four times instead of flying commercial -- at a price of $60,000 -- and again to include all of Pruitt's travel from 2017. 

• Multiple senior EPA officials, including a career official and political appointees, were sidelined or demoted after they raised concerns or pushed back on the amount of money Pruitt has spent as EPA chief on expenses such as travel as well as his management of the agency, two sources confirmed to CNN.  An EPA spokesman has disputed the claims, calling the employees in question "disgruntled." 

• Pruitt lived for about six months in a Capitol Hill condo owned by a health care lobbyist whose husband has lobbied the EPA and payed below the market rate, according to reports by ABC News and Bloomberg. A former deputy chief of staff told congressional investigators the energy lobbyist, J. Steven Hart, called Pruitt's chief of staff to complain that Pruitt was behind on rent, and a separate source told CNN the couple eventually evicted Pruitt by changing the condo lock code. 

CNN has reported that White House officials are exasperated by the housing controversy. 

• Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse sent a letter to the inspector general of the EPA that said Pruitt's constant security included even personal trips to Disneyland and the Rose Bowl.

• The Environmental Integrity Project obtained heavily redacted documents from the EPA that showed the agency spent more than $30,000 on security for Pruitt's 2017 trip to Italy. 

• A report from The Washington Post in mid-March said documents the EPA provided to Congress outlined further travel expenses from Pruitt, totaling about $68,000 and including a nearly $20,000, four-day trip to Morocco and a series of first class flights.

• CNN reported in early March that Pruitt was one of four Cabinet-level officials the White House scolded in February over stories about questionable ethics at their agencies. 

In February, questions over Pruitt’s travel prompted House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, a Republican, to announce an inquiry into Pruitt’s practices, and in response to the committee's request for documents, the EPA did not appear to turn over travel waivers granted to Pruitt for first-class travel.
