POLITICS 05/11/2018 07:08 am ET EPA Hid Scott Pruitt's Dinner With Climate Denier Accused Of Child Sex Abuse The EPA knew Vatican treasurer George Pell was under investigation, but went ahead with the dinner during Pruitt's trip to Italy. headshot By Willa Frej Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt's expensive trip to Italy last year included dinner with Vatican treasurer George Pell, a climate denier since charged with child sex abuse, according to documents unearthed by The New York Times. Emails obtained by Times reporter Eric Lipton and shared Thursday on Twitter reveal that planning for the June dinner began a month earlier. EPA staffers were fully aware that Pell, a cardinal who is the Vatican's third-ranking official, was at the time under investigation, but it appears they sought to cover up Pell's attendance rather than alter Pruitt's schedule.

Pruitt's dinner with Pell at a fancy Roman restaurant was omitted from four official EPA calendars. They mention the dinner itself, but the list of attendees didn't include Pell.

The scandal-plagued EPA chief and the Vatican executive discussed a Wall Street Journal op-ed advocating the creation of a "red team/blue team" process to debate climate science, according to an email obtained via the Freedom of Information Act.

How does this trip's $120k expenditure rank in terms of what Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush and Reagan's EPA staff spent?

Republicans are the most corrupt, loathsome parasite - the alien xenomorph would make a better head of EPA.

Seize it's assets and we'll learn who it met with and for what. It used the EPA to court oil and gas corporations, maybe exclusively.

Monetizing agencies and selling pristine wilderness out from under the citizens needs to end.

#5 - watch it, dude. Also, re-read my crap. I didn't comment on the other slime at the table because it's obvious Italy has quite a few ---------- politicians, specifically the Franco-ites.

BTW you could have just said Pruitt met with a high level Vatican official and we would have gotten that he was meeting with an accused and likely child molester.
