A major Republican donor gave former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief Scott Pruitt $50,000 for his legal defense fund before he stepped down in July.

In an ethics filing the EPA released Thursday, Justina Fugh, the agency’s top ethics official, said the donation was “believed to be in cash” and that Pruitt did not seek ethics advice on receiving it. The EPA did not know about it until he filed the disclosure in November, a requirement upon leaving the government.
==================================================
Pruitt was a bit more than ethically challenged. I believe 'Drain the Swamp' was a slogan supplied by Cambridge Analytica along with MAGA etc.

Wow. That's essentially the same thing Spiro Agnew did.
