Other tasks included picking up Pruitt's dry cleaning without him.

In a statement announcing Greenwalt's resignation, Pruitt called her a "tremendous leader" within the agency.

Other recently disclosed examples of Pruitt seeking special treatment include his repeated use of first-class air travel, luxury hotel suits and directing his security staff to use lights and sirens to speed through Washington traffic to dinner reservations.

Pruitt previous year had his scheduler request a meeting with Chick-fil-A chief executive Dan Cathy to discuss "a potential business opportunity", which turned out to be an opportunity for Pruitt's wife, Marlyn, to open a restaurant in the popular fast-food chain.

"I just think that with great change comes, you know, I think, opposition", he said.

She followed up the next day.

Hupp, Pruitt's scheduler, helped him land a below market rate rented room in a lobbyist's condo, booked him a Rose Bowl trip so he could see his home-state Oklahoma Sooners play and tried to score the "Trump Home Luxury Plush Euro Pillow Top" mattress. "People are really impressed with the job that's being done at the E.P.A. Thank you very much, Scott".

Sen. John Neely Kennedy (R-La.) criticized Pruitt's apparent "impropriety".

CNN has reached out to the EPA for comment and has not yet received a response. The reporter posted the video on Twitter.

This week, we learned EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt had a staffer contact the president of Chick-fil-A to try to land his wife, Marlyn, a franchise deal.

Pruitt in appearances before congressional hearings this spring has denied responsibility for any ethical lapses, saying subordinates made those decisions. "Under no circumstances is it appropriate to do that".

"We've been looking into all the accusations but nevertheless Trump isn't fazed", the official said. Udall contended the dig by the EPA-run Twitter account violated a law barring use of government appropriations for publicity or propaganda.

Sen. John Kennedy, R-Louisiana, said Thursday that while he agrees "with numerous new policies of the EPA", not all of which he says are attributable to Pruitt, he thinks that lately the EPA administrator has been "acting like a moron".
