This is from Sen. Bernie Sanders on Facebook:
Talk about cowardice. We already know that Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, Trump’s climate denier nominee to lead the EPA, worked closely with the fossil fuel industry to make this country more dependent, not less, on fossil fuels. He even sent letters written by fossil fuel companies in his own name. What we don’t know is what else is in the 3,000 pieces of correspondence between his office and oil and gas companies. A judge has just ordered that the emails be released by Tuesday, but now Republicans are trying to ram through his confirmation before the American people find out what is in those emails. That is unacceptable. As EPA administrator, Mr. Pruitt’s priority must be the safety of the people of this country, not the profits of the fossil fuel industry. What are the Senate Republicans afraid of?
OK, once again, this isn’t about the midterms, which are the most important focus. But it is about acting – and we’re building our resistance muscles here.
So call your Senators, Democrats or Repubicans, and tell them that they should postpone the vote on Scott Pruitt until those 3,000 pieces of correspondence have been examined for conflict of interest.
