EPA administrator Scott Pruitt has faced an "unprecedented" number of death threats, according to an agency spokesman.
His statement follows reports Pruitt has spent millions on security despite no proof his life was in danger.
According to EPAs Assistant Inspector General, Scott Pruitt has faced an unprecedented amount of death threats against him and his family, agency spokesman Jahan Wilcox said late Friday. Americans should all agree that members of the presidents Cabinet should be kept safe from these violent threats.
The statement was obtained Saturday by Fox News and included a list of several published reports about such incidents.
A nationwide search of state and federal court records by the Associated Press found no case in which anyone was arrested or charged with threatening Pruitt, the wire service said Friday.
The agency has spent millions of dollars for a 20-member, full-time detail for Pruitt, which is roughly three times the size of his predecessor's part-time security contingent.

The gal that shot up youtube.
That’s the type of people who populate enviro-extremism.
Exactly, and there are many of them.
Waiting for the alarming Monica Media reports of the death threats (the way they always do for their lefty comrades) . . .
waiting . . .
waiting . . .
Does someone have to take a shot at him before he gets a protection detail?
The reason the Left feels justified in physically attacking anyone they disagree with is, they define anything that individual does that they don’t like as “violence.” Therefore, they are defending themselves, not attacking somebody.
The AP doing their best to get Scott Pruitt without a security detail so he can be assassinated..
The left has gone from personal attacks to defamation, to financial ruin ( in the case of Gen Flynn, Laura Ingraham’s program, etc. )to WEEKLY threats on our President’s life and now to death threats on his staff. Is it any wonder President Trump as difficulty finding loyal and trustworthy people to appoint to important positions? WHERE THE HELL ARE THE ARRESTS??????? I’m sure we are only hearing about a fraction of what is going on.
Long live Scott Pruitt at EPA.
Yep, the A** Press could care less if he was assassinated.
The oh so tolerant liberals showing their true character again.
The radical environmentalist’s are no joke. If I’m not mistaken some of the groups are watched by the FBI. These aren’t kids and old folks protesting about a park.
If the threats are real, he should make a few public. It would put all this BS to bed, real quick.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
The reason the Left feels justified in physically attacking anyone they disagree with is, they define anything that individual does that they dont like as violence. Therefore, they are defending themselves, not attacking somebody.
Oh, there’s no extremist like an environmental extremist.
Her hair looks like the beginning of a Super Fund site.
I agree with Senator Rand Paul,
Let President Trump know that Scott Pruitt MUST be defended at all costs!
