In response to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s resignation, Deputy Director Kevin Brubaker said:

“The ethically-impaired Scott Pruitt will not be missed.  But let’s not kid ourselves that his replacement will be any better for clean air and clean water.  Pruitt followed marching orders from the Trump Administration and polluters, and those orders haven’t changed.
