Former Director of Government Ethics Walter Shaub said Environmental Protection chief Scott Pruitt "seems to be fundamentally unfit for public service".

Pruitt joked about the reception, saying signs greeting him "didn't say 'I hope you're having fun.'" He said messages instead implored him to support ethanol over big oil.

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is facing fresh skepticism among Republicans, including one of his staunchest supporters from the Sooner State.

The JCN has donated millions of dollars to political organizations associated with Pruitt since 2013, the Post reported.

Pruitt thanked each person in attendance and said he supported an RVP waiver that would allow year-round E15 sales and believes EPA has the authority to grant it, eventually.

The discussion is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m.at the Nebraska Farm Bureau, according to a news release from Common Sense Nebraska, a coalition of ag groups that seeks "to build awareness and understanding of the EPA proposal and the impacts it would have to Nebraskans".

He suggested it may be time for Pruitt go.

Marlyn Pruitt landed a job previous year at the Judicial Crisis Network after her resume was received by Leonard Leo, executive vice president of the Federalist Society, which the Post said has financial ties to the JCN.

"It's not a decision the EPA makes in isolation". He said the agency has seen "a spike in applications".

A spokeswoman for Inhofe later told Reuters that while the senator is not ready to call for resignation, "he has concerns about the reports coming out and wants to hear directly from Pruitt" in a hearing.

The spokesman said the position came about after the group received her résumé from Leonard Leo, executive vice president of the Federalist Society.

In total, the event took about two hours and was closed to the public. "So, you know, we could - that might be a good swap".

Inhofe used to chair the committee and now chairs one of its subcommittees.

Renew Kansas board member and President/CEO of East Kansas Agri-Energy, Bill Pracht, provided a tour of the facility's ethanol and renewable diesel operations before turning the event over to a lively standing-room-only conversation on the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

"A spike? That's more than a spike".

"We share most of Pruitt's views about environmental policy".

Schindler, in an EPA statement, said he appreciated the chance for the conversation with Pruitt.
