Scott Pruitt Pulls Agents From Investigating Crimes to Babysit Him

We already knew EPA administrator and industry lobbyist Scott Pruitt has a private security detail, just as many officials do, but Pruitt as reportedly tripled the number of agents assigned to him.

The Washington Post reported this morning that Pruitt now has a team of 18 men protecting him at all times, so many men that they've been pulled from their regular duties to protect Pruitt from the Boogeyman.

Scott Pruitt’s round-the-clock personal security detail, which demands triple the manpower of his predecessors at the Environmental Protection Agency, has prompted officials to rotate in special agents from around the country who otherwise would be investigating environmental crimes.

The EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance has summoned agents from various cities to serve two-week stints helping guard Pruitt in recent months. And while hiring in many departments is frozen, the agency has sought an exception to hire additional full-time staff to protect Pruitt.

I don't care how many threats Pruitt has received. This is absurd.

It was also reported earlier this year that Pruitt has effectively sealed off an entire floor at the EPA where no one is allowed to enter without an escort. Pruitt is also known to leave his own office and use phones in other offices to avoid snooping, or something.

No one who is innocent should be this secretive or paranoid. He is almost certainly doing something illegal in private, or multiple somethings.

    Pruitt, Nature always has the last laugh…you can’t escape it or protect yourself from it…

    Meth/Cocaine is a powerful persuader for the already delusional.

    “50 inches of rain in Houston,…this is a shot across our bow. A hurricane the width of Florida going up the center of Florida,….these are shots across our bow.” Who will protect us? Isn’t that supposed to be Pruitt’s job?

    Scott Pruitt has been taking paranoia lessons from the shade of Roger Ailes. I wonder if the windows of that locked-off floor at EPA have been replaced with polycarbonate blast shielding yet?

    It would seem EPA talking head Scot Pruitt, in his mind, needs all that security in order to be protected from the Jolly Green Giant.

    Just makes you want to sneak up and yell “Boo!” and hit him with a ripe tomato, doesn’t it?

    Muselet’s been asking if there is even one honest person to found anywhere in this administration. I’d like to if there is there even one normal human anywhere in this administration? Even if corrupt…
