EPA’s inspector general says it was unable to determine who leaked former Administrator Scott Pruitt’s travel records to the press.

The Office of Inspector General’s semiannual report to Congress says investigators looked into who leaked “without authorization” travel records about an unspecified trip abroad, a possible reference to Pruitt’s December 2017 voyage to Morocco.

“Employees with access to the Administrator’s travel account were interviewed and all denied committing the unauthorized release. The investigation was inconclusive,” the OIG report says.

As reported Thursday, the OIG also reported closing investigations into Pruitt’s condo rental and his use of EPA workers for personal tasks. Both were deemed inconclusive because Pruitt’s resignation prevented investigators from interviewing him.
