If Scott Pruitt Becomes Attorney General, Corporate Polluters Would Be Treated Like Jaywalkers
WASHINGTON – If Scott Pruitt becomes attorney general, he’d treat corporate criminal polluters like jaywalkers, said Environmental Working Group President Ken Cook.
Press reports claim Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Pruitt has told friends and associates he’s interested in becoming the attorney general should Jeff Sessions resign or be fired by President Trump.
“If Scott Pruitt becomes attorney general, he’d go from tearing down public health protections at EPA at the behest of polluters, to looking the other way at the Justice Department when they break the law,” said Cook. “Companies caught dumping waste would be treated like jaywalkers, not criminals, under a justice department led by Scott Pruitt.”
