Ellen Knickmeyer and Michael Biesecker Associated Press Updated 4:45 p.m. UTC Jun 4, 2018 Washington – Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt had a top aide seek a used mattress from the Trump International Hotel and perform other personal chores for him, according to an email and testimony from the aide released Monday. The account from Pruitt scheduling director Millan Hupp is in a letter House Democrats sent Monday to Oversight committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.

Democrats released a partial transcript of her interview, including Hupp’s account that Pruitt had her do personal errands, including house hunting and booking a trip for him to the Rose Bowl. Staffers also asked Hupp about an email that showed her reaching out to managers of the Trump hotel at Pruitt’s request. Hupp told the House staffers that Pruitt was seeking to secure a used mattress from the … [Read more...] about Aide: EPA’s Pruitt sought used Trump-hotel mattress

Gleaming from within their plastic wrapped bubbles, rows of new cars are racked and stacked on my favorite aisle at the local Target. While my wife and kids are elsewhere within the store, I’m stooped down, peering intently past the front-lined models, moving each package aside as I work deeper toward the wall, where my aging eyes and the lack of light make it harder to tell what’s inside. Usually, I’ll choose a few, take them home, and add them to the storage closet in my garage where my collection of Hot Wheels (and Matchbox) cars is kept. I quit opening the packages when I became a teenager, and I can’t remember the last time I spent a day going through all of them.

Ipswich Town owner Marcus Evans has previously stayed out of the limelight. Photo: Steve Waller Some have dismissed Marcus Evans’ first on-camera interview as being carefully scripted and club controlled. Yes, he will have gone into it with some key points to make in mind – but who doesn’t when they are making such an important presentation? There were, I understand, some prompts on a whiteboard. It was filmed in one take though. And this was hardly a piece of propaganda. Some have even gone as far as saying that stepping out of the shadows for the first time in a decade was simply a subtle sales pitch for a club he can no longer afford to keep competitive. Or you could say … [Read more...] about It’s important not to be too cynical of Marcus Evans’ first on-camera interview
