Pointing this out: Pruitt tweeted that he addressed the Large Public Power Council about his plan to bring "energy independence" to the country. It's a frequent talking point for Pruitt, but not one that's part of the agency's historical mission. According to its own website, EPA's purpose is to protect human health and the environment. Pruitt also dropped by the Congressional Coal Caucus meeting Monday where he again talked about energy independence. Another pic.
