Pruitt Contacted 'Franchise of Faith' Chick-fil-A for Wife Buy

  • Pruitt had aide look into Chick-fil-A franchise opportunity for his wife report

Scott Pruitt commented Wednesday on his recent Chick-fil-A business venture, stating, "with great change comes great opposition" when referring to the "changes" he's making at the Environmental Protection Agency.

"EPA is doing really, really well".

She spearheaded his apartment search when his lobbyist landlords soured on his continued presence in their Capitol Hill condo; booked his personal travel; and inquired with President Donald Trump's DC hotel - located across the street from EPA - about purchasing a used mattress Pruitt had heard was available. Federal employees are subject to specific rules created to prevent officials from using their office for personal gain or taking advantage of subordinates.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), a member of GOP Senate leadership, didn't explicitly say Pruitt should be fired, but called Pruitt's behavior a "distraction".




According to the report, Pruitt's Chick-fil-A inquiry came after Sydney Hupp, who was working as an executive scheduler for Pruitt at EPA, reached out via email to Dan Cathy, the chairman of Chick-fil-A, in May 2017.

One of the stranger requests involved driving Pruitt to several places during his quest to find a specific lotion provided by Ritz-Carlton hotels, the Post reported. "And you know, somebody has to say that about you a little bit". Though ultimately unsuccessful, the pursuit of a restaurant tops the list because it represents an attempt to use Scott Pruitt's position to establish a personal profit stream that could continue long after his time in office. You have done, the EPA is doing so well, so many approvals and disapprovals...

Greenwalt will leave the agency on Wednesday to serve as general counsel to the Oklahoma Workers Compensation Commission, the EPA announced Thursday. "Thank you very much, Scott". Joni Ernst, a staunchly conservative Republican from Iowa, suggested Pruitt should resign. Hupp and Greenwalt resigned this week, the reasons for their departures is still unclear.

Pruitt's chief of staff, Ryan Jackson, and former top policy adviser Samantha Dravis are due to appear before the oversight committee's investigators later this month.
