"Emails released today from U.S. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt's time as Oklahoma attorney general show he and his office had a familiar if not symbiotic relationship with fossil fuel companies.
Under a court order, the Oklahoma attorney general's office began turning over 7,564 pages of emails and other records last night to the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD). The liberal-leaning watchdog group had sued Pruitt for failing to respond to its open records requests, including one ignored for more than two years.
The Senate confirmed Pruitt as EPA chief in a contentious 52-46 vote Friday. He addressed agency staffers for the first time as EPA chief yesterday."
