Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Chief Scott Pruitt, formerly the Attorney General of Oklahoma who sued the EPA at least 14 times for their activist agenda, rolled back multiple Obama-era climate policies since leading the EPA, has now resigned, citing personal attacks. Pruitt was harassed just a few days ago in a DC restaurant, he has faced death threats, has been demonized in the media and is the subject of 19 official investigations. Pruitt was involved in multiple scandals regarding spending taxpayer money for travel and security, his close relationships with lobbyists and industry, and allegations he used government resources and staff for personal gain.

Trump-appointed EPA Director Scott Pruitt announced his resignation Thursday, citing unrelenting personal attacks against him and his family.

In his resignation letter, Pruitt thanked the president for allowing him to advance the administration’s agenda, but noted attacks against him were reaching unprecedented levels.

Here’s Pruitt’s resignation letter, via Washington Free Beacon:

Mr. President, it has been an honor to serve you in the Cabinet as Administrator of the EPA. Truly, your confidence in me has blessed me personally and enabled me to advance your agenda beyond what anyone anticipated at the beginning of your Administration. Your courage, steadfastness and resolute commitment to get results for the American people, both with regard to improved environmental outcomes as well as historical regulatory reform, is in fact occurring at an unprecedented pace and I thank you for the opportunity to serve you and the American people in helping achieve those ends.

That is why it is hard for me to advise you I am stepping down as Administrator of the EPA effective as of July 6. 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.

My desire in service to you has always been to bless you as you make important decisions for the American people. I believe you are serving as President today because of God’s providence. I believe that same providence brought me into your service. I pray as I have served you that I have blessed you and enabled you to effectively lead the American people. Thank you again Mr. President for the honor of serving you and I wish you Godspeed in all that you put your hand to.

Your Faithful Friend,
Scott Pruitt

The conservative push-back on all of this harassment is going to be an eye-opener for the left. Get in my face AT2ntifa and see what happens. Enough is enough.
