Sen Sheldon Whitehouse (RI) inquires about OK AG Scott Pruitt's private fundraising activity with Oil & Gas Stakeholders for RAGA during the time in which Pruitt was Executive Committee Member. Whitehouse submits to the record docs marked 'confidential' indicating that Pruitt attended private meetings with: Southern Gas; Koch; Murray; Devon; and The API as Exec of RAGA, but that no info re minutes or $ raised from mtgs is available. Whitehouse asks Pruitt if minutes of those private mtgs could be available as they occurred while Pruitt held public office. Whitehouse states that FOIA requests for 3,000 documents & emails between Pruitt's OK AG office & named oil & gas companies were made 740 days prior to the current hearing, & that Pruitt's office produced 0 documents in response. Whitehouse states these unproduced documents would be useful in assessing Pruitt's conflicts of interest & ability to regulate the same oil & gas companies that would come before him if nominated to head EPA. close
