Scott Pruitt has an emergency

Turn on the flashing lights and crank up the siren: Scott Pruitt has an emergency.

President Trump’s embattled EPA administrator is an important man. He does not like to wait in traffic. So, he reportedly let it be known that he wanted his security detail to use police lights and sirens when taking him to the airport, meetings and social events — even though such emergency equipment is for, well, emergencies.

Confronted Wednesday by a Senate committee, Pruitt said the siren-and-lights thing was a false alarm.

“There have been reports that you encouraged the use of lights and sirens on your motorcade even though there wasn’t an emergency,” said Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.).

“I don’t recall that happening,” Pruitt maintained.

Udall rephrased. “You personally requested that on a number of trips,” he charged.

“No,” Pruitt insisted. “I don’t recall that.”

It was then that Udall revealed a just-released February 2017 email from Pruitt’s head of security, Pasquale “Nino” Perrotta. Subject: “Lights and Sirens.” The body consisted of one line: “Btw — Administrator encourages the use.”

The email was sent to Pruitt’s security detail, including Eric Weese, who was reportedly demoted after he refused to drive with lights and siren, and John Martin, who was also removed from the detail after raising objections to Pruitt’s security procedures.

I really don't know what to say about this, but here we go. So Scott Pruitt, the biggest swamp creature in Trump's administration, has apparently requested the usage of police sirens and lights to get through traffic jams. Naturally he pretended not to remember this, but an email was produced with the subject "Lights and Sirens" and the subject body saying, "BTW - Administrator encourages the use..." that suggests otherwise.

Even police officers can get in trouble for flipping their sirens on to run red lights (if they are reported). Why is this yahoo somehow above the law?

I literally cannot believe this man hasn't been fired or arrested for corruption yet. His pile of questionable behavior seems to grow by the week with new scandals arising all the time and it dates back to when he first assumed office. I'd say this guy is the biggest POS working under Trump. His corruption and disregard for ethics is completely in your face and basically shows that he doesn't give a crap what people think about it. He is there to enrich himself, critics be damned! I really want to know when enough is enough and when are all the people who demanded the swamp be drained with Trump's election doing to demand he be pushed down the drain.

But wealthy people, no matter the circumstance how they got that way, love pomp and attention, and they deserve it. They also are the better suited to serve the peons in high places in our government.

Don't you realize that KS? I think the voters made that perfectly clear. The more spoiled and rich, the better to serve the middle classes.

Ha! That's funny, but sad at the same time... It's clear that Pruitt is given a pass by Trump because he is making it easier for companies to pollute our environment.

I really really can't wait for the day when our populace wakes up from their idiotic stupor and realizes the havoc we've wrecked on our country. I know it's probably a long way off since the Trump sycophancy is holding strong, but all political movements come to an end. Nazism and fascism was also strong in the US while the Third Reich was active in Germany, with many major businessmen (like Henry Ford) even being supportive of Hitler. Then after the war America came to its senses. I don't want to make parallels to nazism here because Trumpism is a whole different deck of cards, but still there will come a time where we WILL be majority disgusted with the things he does and did.

I say that every time this (censored) does this, he is pulled over by the cops, fined, ticketed, and if he gives them crap, arrested complete with handcuffs and dragged to a squad car.

"I don't want to make parallels to Nazism here..."

Where's your thread on Maxine Walters pulling rank in airports?

Or does this kind of garbage only matter if it's a) a Republican or b) a member of Trump administration?

Asking for a friend.

Thanks for taking my words out of context. I like your use of ellipses to cut off the rest of that sentence.

Me- I don't give a flying rat's fecal port who does it, personally. Slap 'em hard, slap 'em often. I'm sick of the rich and self important acting like they are royalty.

I'm going to go the procedural route and state "anybody could simply type an email and write such a note, up to and including the head of security's or anybody with access to his office or official computer. I legitimately believe my client when he denies any recollection of such offensive procedures and we have only the written testimony of a single memo which may not have even been typed by the individual in question.

Now Mr. Perrotta, do you recall typing that line??"

Assuming they have already worked things out between the parties and there is no visual documentation of such writing g taking place by the alleged author of the memo, Mr. Perrotta may also have no recollection of typically g that memo.

At that point the case will either be dismissed, or there will be an agreement to refresh standards and expectations across-the-board with the staff and any judgement will be negligible.

All parties will be found not guilty of any wrong doing.

That would s why I like the court system, your not guilty until conviction.

You seriously believe he is innocent on this just because you can come up with plausible deniability?

Yes. Or perhaps I should say, innocent until proven guilty.

When we have a president who wants to channel commie dictators and give himself military parades, does it surprise anyone that his swamp feel entitled and want police escorts, with pomp and circumstance?

He hired people like him and the taxpayers are paying for it all. Mnuchin flying his wife around on taxpayer money, Donny Jr conducting private business with taxpayer paid security detail, Trump vacationing at his private resorts and depleting the allotted funds for SS for those trips, not counting the lodging he charges for the staff to be there for him... and that's just stuff I could think of in these 30 seconds. It really doesn't surprise me another swamp creature is abusing their position and costing us money.

But they will keep doing it until we ALL get together and stop them. They will do it for as long as they can, why wouldn't they?

That didn't stop tons of people on ATS declaring Hillary's guilt without a proven conviction. But I digress. You don't have even a TWINGE of suspicion these accusations are true and just think he is a standup guy because of this plausible deniability? What about all the other nonsense he has attempted throughout his tenure at the EPA? Requesting a Secret Service detail? Demanding to ride first class to avoid hecklers? Trying to get his office made bullet proof? Doesn't it seem like this is just more of the same from him to you? Or do you just not believe any of that and Scott Pruitt is just getting a bad wrap because our justice department hasn't convicted him of anything?

Yeah because an organization ensuring that our environment stays livable is SUCH a terrible thing... Though I really don't feel like that is a good excuse to excuse corruption and you are making too light of the situation.

That's completely opposite to how capitalism works. In capitalism, if a company cannot find a way to sustain itself, or cannot find a way to operate legally it dies out and makes room for those that can.

If EPA's hands need to be tied in order for these companies to make a profit, then they need to change their model or they need to make room for those that can do it legally.
