Sarah Greenwalt, longtime aide to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, resigns amid scandal at EPA

EPA lawyer Sarah Greenwalt, an aide to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt since he served as Oklahoma's attorney general, has resigned her position, CBS News has confirmed. Greenwalt's resignation comes as another top Pruitt aide, Millan Hupp, also is due to leave her post at the Environmental Protection Agency on Friday. Both Greenwalt and Hupp came under scrutiny after getting significant pay raises without White House approval.

The Atlantic reported in April that Pruitt went to the White House in March with a request for raises for Greenwalt and Hupp. The White House, the Atlantic reported, declined to approve the raises for the political appointees — but Pruitt's office reportedly found a way to make the raises possible anyways.

Pruitt was later pressed on the raises while delivering testimony before the House Energy and Environment Subcommittee in late April.

Pruitt told lawmakers he actually delegated authority to EPA chief of staff Ryan Jackson to give the raises but didn't know the exact amounts and wasn't aware of the process. During the hearing, Pruitt said he was unaware of the "amount" of the raises. But in a Fox News interview on April 4, Pruitt insisted he didn't approve the raises and didn't know who did.

"I found out about this yesterday. And I corrected the action. And we are in the process of finding out how it took place and correct it," said Pruitt when asked by Fox News' Ed Henry if he had known about the raises. He later said that the raises "should not have happened" and the "officials that were involved in that process should not have done what they did."

Documents later showed Ryan Jackson did sign off on the raises and indicated he had Pruitt's consent.

Greenwalt received raises of more than $66,000, bringing her salary to $164,200. Hupp saw her salary jump to $114,590, after raises of more than $48,000.

And now they're out. That's called draining the swamp, you poor Trump troll. You're trying too hard, lol!

Glad to see that all that money that the lobbyists from the Sierra Club spend in DC is being put to good use.

Don't forget this gem too.

Imagine how corrupt you have to be to eat lunch in the dining hall that's reserved for cabinet members. Oh wait he is a cabinet member. #-o

All this means is that Pruitt is doing a good job. If he wasn't then the Green ECO-Facist Lobby wouldn't have their panties all up in a bunch.

I just wish that Marxist organization was shut down. The only place their nose was supposed to be was the big polluting factories, not in every common persons life.

No...the people who got the raises are out...the person who approved them is not.

Bureaucrats are always like this. It is merely a matter of how much they take and for how long they do it. They commit their indecencies and perversions at your cost and they consider that all fair and good. YOU really ought to pay more, say they.
