The editors at conservative magazine National Review on Wednesday urged embattled Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt to resign citing his "bizarre" and "venal" behavior, amid a slew of ethics controversies surrounding his spending and management decisions at the agency.

QuoteThis is no way for any public official to treat taxpayers. It also makes it practically impossible for Pruitt to make the case for the Trump administration’s environmental policies — a case that we continue to believe deserves to be made.
