"EPA Inspector General Further Expands Probe Into Pruitt Travel"

"The Environmental Protection Agency’s internal inspector general is again expanding its investigation into the travel habits of agency head Scott Pruitt.

An internal memo dated Jan. 10 alerts the agency of the amendment to the investigation, which expands the dates of travel covered in the probe to include Pruitt’s travel through the end of 2017. The memo noted that the decision to expand the probe came in response to “additional congressional requests.”

Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) requested the investigation include Pruitt’s December trip to Morocco, which reportedly cost $40,000 in taxpayer dollars."
