Pruitt Out! Scott Pruitt has resigned as head of the Environmental Protection Agency after a string of controversies involving his leadership, President Trump announced Thursday on Twitter. "Within the Agency Scott has done an outstanding job, and I will always be thankful to him for this," tweeted Trump, who added that EPA Deputy Administrator Andrew Wheeler would take over as acting administrator effective Monday. "I have no doubt that Andy will continue on with our great and lasting EPA agenda," "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 my family, are unprecedented and have taken a sizable toll on all of us," Pruitt added. Marie & Guy have the latest.
Short List! President Trump has completed the interview process for Supreme Court candidates after speaking with six judges, a source with knowledge of the selection process told Fox News - with three finalists in particular leading the field. The president and his vetting team have moved quickly ahead of an expected announcement on Monday. While liberal advocacy groups and others are gearing up for a major confirmation fight, Trump is charging ahead with an imminent decision to fill the seat of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, and potentially move the court more solidly to the right. Fox News is told that Trump has interviewed six candidates: Appeals court judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett, Amul Thapar, Joan Larsen and Thomas Hardiman. The interviews comprised seven conversations - Trump talked to one candidate twice. Multiple sources indicated Kavanaugh, Kethledge and Barrett are currently the focus of attention. Guy & Marie talk potential picks.
