Sen. Inhofe Wants Meeting With Fellow Oklahoman Pruitt Over EPA Issues

  • 'Gotta go': Laura Ingraham urges Trump to fire Pruitt

Instead, the administrator said he saw messages imploring him to support ethanol over big oil refineries.

Meanwhile, Pruitt toured a farm in Reliance and spoke with about 50 farmers. He then responded to questions from a number of farmers.

The EPA typically does not disclose Pruitt's whereabouts, and did not publicize Pruitt's trip to South Dakota on Wednesday until a tweet from shortly after 3 p.m. from Pruitt's official account.

Inhofe - who said he's a longtime friend of Pruitt, a former Oklahoma attorney general - said on the Ingraham's program that he agreed with her criticism of Pruitt "100 percent".

Pruitt was also under fire this week by a conservative nonprofit group from Iowa, which created a 30-second television ad this week and said "for the good of the country, Pruitt must go".

Ingraham called for Pruitt to go this week after it was reported he enlisted an aide and Republican donors to find his wife a job.

"I don't know if there's a disconnect between (Trump) and the administrator but something's got to change", Knecht said. On Wednesday, Grassley remarked at a Senate Agriculture Committee hearing, "Pruitt is ill-serving the president". Pruitt has been the EPA Administrator since February 2017.

According to the EPA's website, financial hardship waivers are meant to prevent disruptions in the fuel supply.

Virginia Canter of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, a public watchdog in Washington, told the Post that Pruitt using a full-time EPA employee as a "headhunter for his spouse" is "highly inappropriate".

Asked about the matter Tuesday, EPA spokesman Jahan Wilcox said in a statement, "I would refer you to outside counsel".

Trump has continued to vouch for Pruitt and said last week that Pruitt "is doing a great job within the walls of the EPA". He said the agency has seen "a spike in applications".

Several farmers were not satisfied with this explanation, and one suggested that if the formulas used by the DOE were hurting farmers, maybe those formulas should be revisited. "That's a moonshot", Fremark said. "I am sending over a communication today that says we have had enough of these things".

"We thank Administrator Pruitt for coming to Kansas and listening to our concerns and current challenges", Renew Kansas Chairman and Western Plains Energy CEO Derek Peine, said.

"It's something we're evaluating", he said. The EPA moved earlier this year to block that measure, which has been roundly criticized in South Dakota since it was created.
