Watchdog to investigate EPA chief’s $25000 ‘secure phone booth’

Breaking! Latestnews
 The Environmental Protection Agency inspector general will review whether Administrator Scott Pruitt misused any appropriated funds when he had a $25,000 "privacy booth" with a secure phone line installed in his office earlier this year, according to a letter to democrats on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
The IG's letter in response to a request from Democrats on the committee was sent last week but posted by the Energy and Commerce committee democrats on twitter Tuesday.
The EPA has called the booth a "SCIF", a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, and said Pruitt needs the secure line to make calls about classified information and communicate with the president. But he said it's difficult to estimate how often he will need it when he was asked about it while testifying during a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing last week.
