Scott Pruitt, as AG in Oklahoma, helped cause 5000 fracking earthquakes in just 1 year, deliberately selected an execution chemical banned in several areas, organized Republican attorneys general in 11 other states to fight against California's law requiring larger cages for factory farmed hens.

28 Of Myriad Reasons To Impeach Scott Pruitt

There are at least 12 ongoing government investigations of Scott Pruitt's corruption

of Carl Icahn to head the EPA. Icahn owns oil refineries.

challenging the right of Californians to require
bigger cages for factory farmed birds.

7. Pruitt worked to poison fishes and those who eat them.
8. His petition to allow his car to go through DC traffic with sirens and lights has been turned down. The aide who said it was not a good idea has been reassigned.

he lived ina DC condo at 1/4 of the average
monthly rent of Capitol Hill as a gift of 2 Washington
lobbyists, one with business before the EPA.
10. He has worked as has Ryan
Zinke to remove protections for the nation's forests.
11. He spent $25,000 to soundproof his office and more money to provide a bulletproof desk for his receptionist.
12. He spent $40,000 of taxpayer money on a trip to Morocco to lobby for the liquid gas businessof his landlord lobbyist. That would have been Wilbur Ross' job as Secretary of Commerce.
13. He has flown 1st class instead of coach. Coach is the rule for government employees.
14. He bypassed the White House in giving over $80,000 in raises to 2 of his Oklahoma staffers.

19. Scott Pruitt was one of those responsible for a record 5000 thousand fracking earthquakes in just 1 year in Oklahoma, including the strongest earthquake ever recorded there. He and the fracking industry diverted the precious little water that Oklahoma has from people and animals to the fracking industry. In April of 2018, a blizzard was freezing captive cows to death on one end of Oklahoma while fires burned them alive on the other.
