The EPA chief is the subject of several investigations into alleged ethical lapses.

Hupp recently testified before the House oversight committee that she did many personal tasks for Pruitt, including house-hunting and inquiring about obtaining a used Trump hotel mattress.

"I just think that with great change comes, you know, I think, opposition", he said.
