Pruitt slammed Trump in 2016 interview

EPA should be expanding efforts to protect public health

EPA should be expanding efforts to protect public health

John Barrasso, R-Wyoming, chairman of the environment committee, said Pruitt had likely done more to aid the economy and increase jobs than "any other EPA administrator in history".

Environmental Protection Agency administrator said in a 2016 interview that if were elected president, Pruitt believed he would be "abusive to the Constitution" and would insist on using his executive powers in ways that were "truly unconstitutional".

"I don't, senator", Pruitt said. "And those things that he's mentioned can not be done", Pruitt added.

Pressed about statements he's made challenging the legal basis of the finding and that the Obama administration used a flawed process to develop the conclusion, Pruitt indicated his agency was still reviewing the issue.

BBC outlines solution to unequal pay
Last year, a list of 96 BBC stars earning £150,000 a year or more was released , with just 34 women, compared to 62 men. The plans we're setting out today go further and are more important steps in modernising the BBC and making it fairer".

Also, if the emissions contain lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, hexavalent chromium or dioxin, additional charges will be imposed according to the amounts emitted, said Tsai, adding that lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic and hexavalent chromium will be charged at NT$360 per kilogram, while dioxin will be calculated by its level of toxicity per gram, with the rate ranging between NT$3,600-NT$36,000.

Pat Campbell: So this is unbelievable because, coming from you, as the state Attorney General, and obviously the credibility you've got with our audience - you're echoing basically what Glenn Beck has been saying for months. When Campbell asserted that "everything that we loathe and detest about Barack Obama and the abuses of power, Donald Trump is the same thing - except he's our bully".

Scott Pruitt: And unapologetically. I was at the Reagan Library over the weekend, as I was sharing with you, speaking about federalism principles to the Federalist Society. "I don't echo that today at all".

After the hearing, Pruitt's staff tried to do damage control by releasing a statement that read, in part: "Now having the honor of working for him, it is abundantly clear that President Trump is the most consequential leader of our time". And he's not real long-winded like me. He summed up Donald Trump in one word. And that's a risky place to be. "It is important that people know that one of the "stars" of this administration had such serious concerns about threats to the constitution by President Trump". But President Obama, we don't need to replace him with another individual - as you said, our bully - in the White House, to do what he's done from the Republican side of things.
