Two EPA administrators who served under America's last two Republican presidents criticized current EPA chief Scott Pruitt for the escalating controversies regarding his lodging and travel expenses and more.

Why it matters: The pair of administrators, Christine Todd Whitman and William Reilly, have been in the same hot seat before and know the demands and expectations of the job. Pruitt has gone on offense in the last couple of days, granting interviews to conservative media outlets and blaming liberals for waging an attack on him because they don’t like his agenda at the Environmental Protection Agency.
