"IG: Threat Memo Cited By Pruitt Isn’t From IG"

"The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Inspector General (OIG) pushed back Thursday against EPA head Scott Pruitt, saying he misrepresented a memo about the threats against him in testimony to the House.

In two separate hearings Thursday, Pruitt presented to lawmakers a “threat assessment” that he said came from Inspector General Arthur Elkins detailing various death threats against him.

He used the memo to justify his security costs, including the purchase of first-class airline tickets and the employment of a 24/7 security detail.

But the OIG says the document wasn’t from Elkins."
