Pruitt denies receiving improper gifts on the job

The Associated Press - September 12, 2018 2:43 pm

WASHINGTON (AP) – The scandal-plagued former chief of the Environmental Protection Agency is denying he got any improper gifts on the job.

The EPA has released Scott Pruitt’s financial disclosure report for 2017. The report requires Pruitt to disclose sources of income and any gifts.

The report makes no mention of a $50-a-night Washington condo he stayed in or other perks he was alleged to have received. Among other allegations are that he obtained tickets to the Rose Bowl and work for his wife, along with the cut-rate housing.

Pruitt says in the report that he disputes all such allegations, and he says he’s “not aware” of receiving any reportable gifts.

Trump announced Pruitt’s resignation on July 5, amid near-daily headlines about federal investigations targeting the then-EPA chief.
