Two years before Scott Pruitt was chosen to lead the Environmental Protection Agency that he wants to wreck, Fox 25, the Oklahoma City Fox affiliate, began seeking documents through the Freedom of Information Act relating to his term as Oklahoma attorney general.
Senator Cory Booker, D-New Jersey, asked Pruitt directly, "Have you ever conducted business using your personal email accounts, nonofficial Oklahoma Attorney General email accounts, text messages, instant messenger, voicemails, or any other medium?"
"I can certainly say if he or anyone else in the Trump political team at EPA was using private email, they would be held up for severe criticism, and justly so given the history of this issue", Sussman said.
In its court filing, the Oklahoma attorney general's office argues that it is impractical and unfair to prioritize the Pruitt emails over other open-records requests that the state is sorting through.
Pruitt, just days into his tenure as EPA chief, is dealing with a familiar irritant for past agency leaders: transparency regarding his communication records with those trying to influence public policy.

CPAC featured anti-EPA rhetoric before Pruitt's appearance. "There's going to be a lot of litigation". We're going to recognize the regulatory uncertainty and the regulatory state needs to be reined in.
Environmentalists, Democrats and some EPA staff staunchly opposed the appointment of Pruitt. Pruitt is expected to slow or reverse much of that, scaling back regulations and deferring to states on environmental enforcement.
Naomi Ages, a Greenpeace climate campaigner, said: "Trump will never know what it feels like to worry about the water his family is drinking, to wonder if his house will survive the next superstorm, or if his child will face illegal deportation".
