PRUITT CHICKENS OUT
“The Pat Campbell Show” Feb. 4, 2016
Speaker Oklahoma Attorney General SCOTT PRUITT
Q: Do you support Donald Trump for President?
A: “ No.”
Q:[ Why ? ]
A: “I believe that Donald Trump in the White House would be more abusive to the Constitution than Barack Obama — and that’s saying a lot,”
“I really believe he would use a blunt instrument. This president at least tries to nuance his unlawfulness.”
Pruitt went on to warn that he feared Trump would :
“use executive power to confront Congress in a way that is truly unconstitutional.”
Dateline Washington Senate Environment Committee Jan. 30, 2018
Asked by Senator Whitehouse if he recalled what he said on Tulsa radio
SCOTT PRUITT said : "I don't, senator, and I don't echo that today." At hearing's end , Administrator Pruitt issued this written statement:
“it is abundantly clear that President Trump is the most consequential leader of our time...
No one has done more to advance the rule of law than President Trump.
The President has liberated our country from the political class and given America back to the people.”
At the hearing, several senators demanded Pruitt recuse himself on grounds of prejudice from efforts to overturn EPA CO2 regulations by fiat, since as Oklahoma Attorney General, he sued the agency 13 times to do so, and lost all 13 cases.
