Scott Pruitt resigned because of numerous ethical scandal investigations.
Do the investigations continue?
Does resigning clear him of all those investigations? If he misused public funds, is he still accountable?
Pruitt is currently under investigation for upwards of 13 charges. At least one of those investigations, the one in the House Oversight Committee, will continue. The EPA Inspector General, the Office of Management and Budget, the Government Accountability Office, the U.S. Office of Special Consul, and the Senate all have investigations. None of these have commented yet, but expect that they will all continue, and Pruitt can still be held accountable for breaking the law.
