Two aides and three security agents working for Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott PruittEdward (Scott) Scott PruittPruitt spent K flying aides to Australia to prep for later-canceled visit: report Open data and protecting privacy - We can do both Cutting through the smokescreen around environmental regulation MORE took a $45,000 trip to Australia for the goal of setting up meetings for Pruitt that never actually occurred, Reuters reports. The investigations are taking place within both the House and Senate, the EPA and the White House, itself.

On Monday, CNN reported that the Government Accountability Office concluded Pruitt violated federal law when his office purchased a $43,000 soundproof booth. Pruitt is now enmeshed in scandal over his conduct in office.

"The documents and information that have been provided to me raise many troubling questions", the senator wrote Inspector General Arthur Elkins in March.

"While I consider matters of private security to become serious protection should not be used as a pretext to obtain exclusive therapy", white house stated.

Now, Mulvaney said he plans on looking into the matter.

"After analyzing your request, we have chose to conduct a review", he wrote.

Two of his aides and three security agents flew to Australia last August on business-class tickets costing roughly $9,000 each to set up meetings for the EPA administrator.

Spokesman Jahan Wilcox says the same security procedures are followed for all of Pruitt's travel.

Elkins told Whitehouse that the audit of the use of security detail on the personal trips would be reviewed separate from the IG's current review of the travel and security concerns.

Welch is among 170 lawmakers supporting a 'no confidence' resolution in response to Pruitt's alleged ethics violations.

In a letter this month, David Apol, the acting director of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, took the unusual step of telling EPA officials that Pruitt's actions deserved additional scrutiny.
