EPA head did govt. business on personal email and lied about it

Following up on this post, it turns out that the new head of the EPA was found to also have used personal email for government business. And he lied about it in his confirmation hearing. Not to mention that the emails also reveal his helping the fossil fuel industry to avoid pollution standards and much more. Republican response? Crickets.

PS: One of Pruitt's first actions as EPA head was to eliminate a prior rule that required fossil fuel companies to provide information on methane released from their projects. Yes, those "burdensome and onerous regulations" that require environmental protection. You know, that thing in the very name of the agency he is sworn to enforce?
