The legal counsel for Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt has become the latest top aide to leave.
Trump continued, "You know that, Scott".
According to a source close to Pruitt, the message being sent at the meeting was abundantly clear: "We love having Mr. Pruitt, but it's not meant for everyday use". The focus of almost a dozen federal inquiries into his travel expenses, security practices and other issues, Pruitt was on the Hill to testify about his agency's FY2019 budget proposal. "I love, she loves, we love Chick-fil-A as a franchise of faith", he told a reporter for Nexstar Media Group, which owns local television stations around the country.

The tweet notes some of Pruitt's most egregious scandals, including the fact that he paid $50 a night for a condo - well below market rate - from the wife of a lobbyist who had business before the EPA.
She is the fourth senior EPA political appointee to resign in the last two months, since news first broke that Pruitt past year leased a bargain-priced Capitol Hill condo tied to an oil and gas lobbyist.
His comment spurred some deep feelings among many journalists for good reason: Wilcox is part of an administration that openly views the free press as the enemy, even as (or because) it uncovers levels of corruption Trump had promised he'd stamp out.
Pruitt actually suggests it's only a story because he's making big changes and "with great change comes significant opposition".
