"Fire Him"


What: Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt testified Wednesday before the US Senate Appropriations Committee's subcommittee on Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies. While the embattled EPA chief fielded questions from concerned Democrats, protesters could be seen on C-SPAN cameras holding up signs which read, "Fire Him" and depicted Pruitt's face.

 

Why: Pruitt's tenure at the EPA has been riddled with questions over his administration of the agency, from scrutiny over ​expenses to allegations of improper ties with l​obb​yists. Multiple investigations are currently underway into Pruitt's conduct at the environmental watchdog agency.
