Former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has retained partner Cleta Mitchell to represent him.
The information is contained in a Politico article, “Pruitt owed lawyers up to $300K, now eyeing job with coal exec
,” about a 2017 financial disclosure form for the former administrator that was released by the agency on Wednesday. Neither Mitchell nor another lawyer retained by Pruitt - Paul Rauser, co-founder of the Aegis Law Group - is listed on Pruitt’s 2017 disclosure.
Pruitt has also launched a legal defense fund, contributions to which will have to be disclosed on his 2018 financial disclosure if they were made when he was still EPA administrator.
