Scott Pruitt caught being honest about Trump…

11:29 AM EST on January 30, 2018

Well, I guess we never have to worry about Scott Pruitt becoming US Attorney General.

Earlier today, news broke that Scott Pruitt had some not-so-flattering things to say about Donald Trump in a 2016 interview with an obscure local Tulsa radio show.

Here are the details via Documented Investigations:

In a stinging 2016 radio interview, Scott Pruitt lambasted then candidate Donald Trump, warning of the danger to the constitution should he become president.

“If Donald Trump is the nominee and eventually the president, he would take I think, unapologetic steps to use executive power to confront Congress in a way that is truly unconstitutional”, said Pruitt.

The interview was recorded on February 4, 2016 in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the Pat Campbell radio show, and uncovered by Documented.

“I believe that Donald Trump in the White House will be more abusive to the constitution than Barack Obama and that’s saying a lot,” said Pruitt.

Let's give Scott Pruitt some credit. He totally called it! Trump is taking unapologetic steps to use executive power to confront Congress in a way that is truly unconstitutional, and now Pruitt gets to help him do it! That was some savvy planning.

Pruitt was asked about the comments earlier today during a Senate committee hearing.

The senator asked Mr. Pruitt if he recalled making the comments, and Mr. Pruitt responded: “I don’t. And I don’t think that today at all.”

After the Senate testimony concluded, Mr. Pruitt’s staff issued a statement attributed to him that said: “Now having the honor of working for him, it is abundantly clear that President Trump is the most consequential leader of our time. No one has done more to advance the rule of law than President Trump.”

It was not yet apparent how Mr. Trump, who prizes loyalty in his inner circle, reacted to the airing of the broadcast. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Wow. Spoken like a true spineless hypocritical brown noser. If Pruitt keeps up this facade, maybe Trump will forgive him for the comments. Perhaps the attorney general's office isn't out of reach after all.
