Scott Pruitt security aide resigns, prepares to speak to Congress
EPA administrator Scott Pruitt's security aide, Pasquale “Nino” Perrotta, is set to appear before the House Oversight Committee, reports ABC. Perrotta — who resigned from the EPA on Monday — told ABC he plans to "fully cooperate and answer any and all questions" from Congress.
The big picture: Perrotta is the latest Pruitt aide to leave the EPA amid scrutiny of the administrator's travel and security spending. Axios' Jonathan Swan and Ben Geman reported that Albert "Kell" Kelly, a top aide on toxic waste cleanups, is also leaving.
