Investigations of Pruitt are likely to continue

July 10, 2018, The Washington Post

Robert Kelner is quoted by The Washington Post in an article regarding continuing investigations into former Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt. According to Kelner, there is no "guiding principle" as to whether a congressional inquiry or one by an agency's inspector general continues once a public official resigns. When it comes to Congress, he says, "it's entirely a political question, and so it's really in the discretion of the chair whether to continue the investigation and whether to issue a report." Kelner adds, "Sometimes the minority will proceed even if the majority does not proceed."
