Hupp and another close aide, Sarah Greenwalt, resigned on Wednesday, the EPA said.

While EPA security agents are required to protect Pruitt at all times - both while he is working and during his off hours - the two individuals said the administrator had asked members of the detail to perform tasks that go beyond their primary function. Two things: One, Scott Pruitt knows the importance of keeping his supple skin glowing and moisturized.

In this May 16, 2018, file phot, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt testifies before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee on the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies on budget on Capitol Hill in Washington.

The Washington Post first reported Tuesday that following outreach from an aide, Pruitt had a call with an individual in the company's legal department. Federal rules bar public officials from receiving gifts from subordinates, including unpaid services, and from using their office for private gain.

Despite the mounting scandals, President Donald Trump continues to stand by Pruitt and lavished praise on him today at a hurricane-preparedness briefing attended by Cabinet secretaries and agency heads.

"Administrator Pruitt follows the same security protocol whether he's in his personal or official capacity", EPA press secretary Kelsi Daniell told CBS News on the matter. "Somebody has to say that about you a little bit, you know that, Scott". Even though he was turned down, Pruitt gave them raises anyway.

On Wednesday, the EPA announced the resignation of Pruitt scheduler Millan Hupp. On the other hand, you may not remember that Pruitt also spent around $1,560 of taxpayer money on 12 fancy fountain pens, and roughly the same amount on fancy journals. The opportunity, according to one former EPA senior staff member, was exploring the possibility of a Chick-fil-A franchise for Pruitt's wife.

Pruitt's alleged use of his EPA position to help job-search for his family is improper because he put aides to work, and because "by using his staff he brought in the imprimatur of the agency, he invoked the authority of the agency", said Virginia Canter, ethics counsel with the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington nonprofit.
