EPA To Conduct 'Full Review' Of Information Requests For Pruitt Records

"The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said on Thursday that it would conduct a 'full review' of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests regarding Administrator Scott Pruitt's multiple email accounts, after concerns from a Republican senator that some requested information was not being made available to the public.  

“In response to your concern, my office is conducting a full review of the searches conducted regarding FOIA requests seeking Administrator Pruitt’s records,” EPA Deputy Chief Information Officer Steven Fine wrote in a letter to Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) on Thursday.

In his letter, the EPA official said that Pruitt had a traditional email with his first and last name, and had additionally used a “day to day” email with the address sooners7@epa.gov. One other email, esp7@epa.gov, was set up for Pruitt but never used. Without offering a reason, Fine told Barrasso that Pruitt’s day-to-day address “must now be changed.”"
