The political sailing has not been smooth for many of President Trump’s nominees, and the process of approving Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as head of the Environmental Protection Agency is no exception.

After being a target of one of the many Democratic Senate committee boycotts, Pruit cleared the log-jam:

As President Obama spends the remainder of his presidency pardoning trangenders who disclosed vital security information, appointing fabulists to key positions, and releasing dangerous Gitmo detainees, people are beginning to mull over what we will remember most about this era.

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the EPA, will face the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee at 10AM EST.

The campaign will use children’s health concerns in ads in Washington, D.C. and six states that have “senators who could swing the confirmation vote.”
