Fox's Ingraham calls for Trump to fire Pruitt: 'GOTTA GO'

EPA's Pruitt May Need to Resign, Key Republican Ally Says

Sen. James M. Inhofe (R-Okla.) said in an interview Wednesday that he has requested a face-to-face meeting with Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt to discuss the allegations of ethical misconduct dogging him, saying that Pruitt would be "in a very awkward position not to answer to me, and to answer me truthfully", if they sat down together.

"I support Sen. @JimInhofe's call for a hearing on EPA Administrator Pruitt's scandals; and I continue to urge the President to take a hard look at Mr. Pruitt's actions - as I do not feel that Mr. Pruitt is serving @RealDonaldTrump's best interests", Iowa Republican Senator Joni Ernst wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

Pruitt thanked each person in attendance and said he supported an RVP waiver that would allow year-round E15 sales and believes EPA has the authority to grant it, eventually.

Pruitt has been under intense scrutiny since March, when media reports first revealed he had rented a luxury Capitol Hill condo tied to a prominent oil and gas lobbyist for just $50 a night. "I would say this, that there's a guy behind him in (EPA Deputy Administrator) Andrew Wheeler who is really qualified too, so that might be a good swap".

"It's not a decision the EPA makes in isolation", he said.

EPA, he said, should have "done its own homework", and the agency is now evaluating how the process was conducted.

Cristiano Ronaldo scores hattrick to earn Portugal a thrilling draw against Spain
Cristiano Ronaldo kick-started Portugal's World Cup clash with Spain in the best way possible - with a goal in just four minutes. Many were raving about the Portuguese legend's performance, including newly-appointed Spain manager, Fernando Hierro .

"A spike? That's more than a spike. That's a moonshot", farmer David Fremark told Pruitt.

A scathing editorial published by the National Review said, "we are now at a point where a good week for Pruitt sees only one report of behavior that is weird or venal".

Pruitt also heard from farmers during a two-hour visit to a Reliance farm that wasn't publicized and was closed to the public. The Daily Republic newspaper in Mitchell arrived on site early Wednesday and was told it could not enter the event, but EPA officials later changed course and allowed a reporter inside the building where the discussion was taking place.

"Two of these companies that they handed waivers to made over a billion dollars a year ago", Fremark told the newspaper. "I'm sending a communication over today that we've had enough of these things and you need to get down and do the job we're elected to do".

Pruitt joked about his reception.

American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) CEO Brian Jennings says they just want Administrator Pruitt to do his job.
