CNN had some egregious 'reporting' recently. This time it is screaming, belligerently, about a meeting between EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, and Tom Collier, the CEO of the major mining company, Pebble Partnership.
FreedomWorks activists got two big wins today. The Senate Environmental and Public Works Committee approved Attorney General Scott Pruitt (R-Okla.), and the Senate Finance Committee approved Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.). These nominees are now headed to the Senate floor for confirmation.
Immediately following the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee’s vote on Attorney General Scott Pruitt (R-Okla.) for Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon released the following statement:
Following the conclusion of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee hearing on the confirmation of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to serve as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
Environmental groups have declared war against Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, Donald Trump's nominee to head the Environmental Protection Agency. Don't be surprised if Mr. Pruitt's nomination hearing this week degenerates into a three ring circus of obnoxious and disruptive Big Green antics, the new M.O. of the left these days.
The U.S. Capitol Building may be closed for the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump, but there will be plenty of action in the adjacent Senate office buildings. Confirmation hearings on eight of President-elect Trump's cabinet nominees are expected this week. This follows confirmation hearings on six nominees last week. Initially, more confirmation hearings were expected last week, but some delays were announced. The House is expected to convene on Friday.
FreedomWorks is proudly supporting Scott Pruitt as the nominee to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). He has demonstrated his commitment to defending the separation of powers by fighting the EPA for constitutional overreach. He will hold the executive branch accountable when it comes to power and regulations, and will further his consistency in keeping federal intrusion out of the rights of both the states and individuals.
