Scott Pruitt: The Facts

Scott Pruitt, Trump’s EPA nominee,
ordered to turn over thousands of emails

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office said Thursday night that Friday’s vote will go ahead as scheduled, though the calls to delay that vote will only grow over the next day. Mr. Pruitt must turn over the emails by Tuesday, according to the judge’s order.
