"Thus far, Pruitt's conduct has raised no red flags with the EPA's so-called ethics office, which seems to be run by Gordon Gekko", said EWG President Ken Cook. "The American public needs to have confidence that ethics violations, as well as the appearance of ethics violations, are investigated and appropriately addressed".
"There's no way to prove what she said is true; a lot of people say the administrator said this or that", said the EPA spokeswoman, who reached out to CNN to explain the emails.
The letter says an October 17, 2017, threat assessment states that "at the time there were "no known investigations underway concerning threats to Scott Pruitt" by the Joint Terrorism Task Force, and that an open-source review of social media uncovered 'no evidence of a direct threat to the Administrator's life or physical well-being'".
For Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt, the scandals just won't let up. Instead, even as revelations about Pruitt piled up this week, Trump was reportedly still entertaining the idea of installing Pruitt as attorney general, a position for which his primary qualification may be willingness to squelch the Russian Federation investigation. The OGE does not have authority to take action with respect to any possible violation, according to CNN.

Warrants for Trump Lawyer Cohen Prompt 'Special Procedure'
The searches were authorized by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing the special counsel's investigation. Cohen says the raid was "upsetting to say the least" and he would be "lying" if he said he wasn't anxious .
The Washington Post sought records under the Freedom of Information Act late a year ago, asking for "copies of all emails, letters, voicemails and other communication in which Administrator Pruitt was threatened with violence or which were otherwise considered to be threatening to the administrator".
But Trump's assertion appears to be on shaky ground, with a senior investigative reporter at BuzzFeed announcing he had filed a freedom of information request with the EPA to ascertain how many death threats Pruitt had received during his tenure.
The big picture: Pruitt's environmental views are actually in line with most conservative elected officials since Ronald Reagan was elected president in 1980. One of them fought buying Pruitt a $100,000-per-month charter aircraft membership, spending $70,000 to replace two office desks and wasting $43,000 on a soundproof booth in the administrator's office.
The HBO showed off a number of apartments in D.C. available for the same price on AirBnB, in response to Pruitt's defense that he was paying "market rate", and the options - including a one leather couch named "Black Beauty" - were less than luxurious.
And Pruitt - among the most aggressive of Trump's appointees in cutting federal regulations - enjoys wide support among GOP lawmakers, several of whom are either standing by him or at least avoiding publicly scolding his actions.
MSU Facing Lawsuit Accusing Student Athletes of Rape
The lawsuit says the woman was having a hard time holding her glass, though she said she did not have a lot to drink. She was admitted to the Sparrow Hospital outpatient psychiatric day program for intensive psychiatric treatment.
The first is Pruitt renting a condo for $50 a night from the wife of an energy lobbyist.
Capping off the week, EPA ethics officers walked back their clearance of Pruitt's sketchy condo rental deal, revealing that they had not been given all the relevant information necessary to make a reasonable call.
Pruitt is rewriting the record book for shameless government corruption.
The letter also cites two requested queries from the Secret Service in February, asking for potential threats against Pruitt which did not turn up "reports of behaviors of interest directed toward EPA Administrator Pruitt".
Iran threat: We'll restart nuke enrichment in days
Allies in the Middle East region, however, are urging America to get out and approach Iran in an aggressive, realistic way. Trump said in January that "disastrous flaws" in the agreement had to be fixed or Iran would face a USA exit.
