President Trump has stood by Pruitt despite an avalanche of scandals.
The EPA has claimed that Pruitt requires the unprecedented security because of the volume of threats he's received since joining the administration - like people cursing at him in public.

Perrotta oversaw a rapid expansion of the EPA chief's security detail to accommodate guarding him day and night, even on family vacations and when Pruitt was home in Oklahoma.
Former Gov. Chris Christie said he expected Pruitt to eventually resign, saying "I don't know how you survive" earlier this month on ABC's "This Week". Pruitt's premium status gave him and his security chief access to VIP airport lounges.
