President Trump tweeted that he has accepted the resignation of EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.
Los Angeles Times: “The departure of the anti-regulatory crusader ends a bizarre and tumultuous chapter of the Trump administration that puzzled even some of the president’s staunchest supporters.”
“The spendthrift EPA chief has been a political liability for the White House for months, drawing the attention of federal investigators with scandal after scandal, many of which were linked to his lavish spending of taxpayer money and the use of his position to enrich his family. Pruitt leaves the post the target of more than a dozen official probes.”
Fox News quotes from Pruitt’s resignation letter to Trump:

It is extremely difficult for me to cease serving you in this role first because I count it a blessing to be serving you in any capacity, but also, because of the transformative work that is occurring.
However, the unrelenting attacks on me personally and my family, are unprecedented and have taken a sizable toll on all of us.
