During his tenure as Oklahoma’s Attorney General, current EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt reportedly took several steps to obscure his email communications – and the EPA is already facing allegations of excessive secrecy. It has been reported that on numerous occasions Pruitt sent or received emails regarding government business from his personal email account. Second, it has recently come to light that he used two different government email addresses while serving as Attorney General. Neither of those details was properly disclosed to the Senate during his confirmation process.
American Oversight is seeking records sufficient to evaluate how Pruitt has been conducting agency business since taking over as the head of the EPA, and in particular whether he is properly complying with all Federal Records Act requirements.
