    Wow.

    I'd call that "holding people to account". Point was, that lady who confronted him the resturant put him at the front of the news feed again... and then we all got reminded why he needed to go.

    Pruitt's lack of integrity was amazing, given his public job and still abused his position to the limit. The slow response really is disturbing.

    Obama abused the Hell out of Executive orders and presidential memos, all to circumvent Congress.

    Not true.
    You're buying the hype that the left is shoveling.

    Before Pruitt:

    "A December 2015 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report concluded the EPA’s use of Thunderclap to send out messages boosting the Waters of the United States rule (also known as the Clean Water Rule) “constitutes covert propaganda” and violates the legal prohibition on propaganda by a federal agency.

    "The GAO report found that the EPA reached 1.8 million social media users through Thunderclap, which uses a synchronized social media blast to amplify a message on platforms such as Twitter:

    "The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) violated publicity or propaganda and anti-lobbying provisions contained in appropriations acts with its use of certain social media platforms in association with its “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) rulemaking in fiscal years 2014 and 2015. Specifically, EPA violated the publicity or propaganda prohibition though its use of a platform known as Thunderclap that allows a single message to be shared across multiple Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr accounts"

    like what? Immigration? Whatever Obama did, was always challenged in court by Republicans, and sometimes Obama won in the courts, but sometimes he lost in the courts...

    WHAT ELSE do you claim he used his executive power to do that he allegedly abused?

    And why are you calling Obama's executive orders 'abuse', while not saying anything about Trump's executive orders in his first year plus that have totaled all of obama's 8 years?

    if Obama abused executive orders, then what the hell has Trump done???

    "Administrator McCarthy committed perjury and made several false statements at multiple congressional hearings, and as a result, is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors—an impeachable offense.

    "On July 9, 2015, Administrator McCarthy appeared before the House Committee on Space, Science, and Technology and made false statements in violation of section 1001 of title 18, United States Code."

    This is classic, however, and fits in with the theme of the day..which is that leftists are naturally depraved and disgusting:

    "The employee admitted that— for approximately 2 to 6 hours during his assigned work hours daily, over a period of “several years”—he had viewed and downloaded pornographic images on EPA computer equipment. The employee stated that much of his workday was devoted to organizing the
    downloaded pornography into saved folders. It was his belief that he was not doing anything wrong by accessing pornographic websites, since he was completing his required work and that other colleagues spend much of their assigned duty hours doing “personal” things rather thanofficial EPA business.
    During the course of the OIG’s investigation, the employee also stated that he had receivedseveral performance awards, which included monetary awards ranging from $600 to $2,000 and a time -off award of 16 hours."
