Scott Pruitt, the administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has appealed to United States President Donald Trump to fire the incumbent Attorney General, Jeff Sessions so that he could run for the position.
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt became the most recent Trump administration figure to get an earful while trying to get a mouthful at a DC restaurant, according to a Facebook posting Monday.
Last week, The EPA's chief ethics official said he was pushing for a series of independent investigations into Pruitt's actions as administrator. One of Pruitt's schedulers reportedly paid for a $600 hotel reservation, former deputy chief of staff Kevin Chmielewski said.
"Within the Agency Scott has done an outstanding job, and I will always be thankful to him for this", Trump said on Twitter making the announcement.
