  1. This is a smear campaign to derail Pruitt because he’s destroying the global warming agenda – this presentation is 💩

  2. Outlaw…lobbying!
    No government officials should be allowed to own individual Stocks. Just broad-market ETFs.

  3. He(and others especially EPA) has so many death threats this is the way Manuchin has to travel. Why don't you take care of the radical left that want his life instead of bitching about the cabinets overspending. We need a fund to protect these people.

  4. Fox is freaking out because of the Michael Cohen raid, It will show communications between Fox and the Trump campaign and after Trump was elected.Hannity is but one of the closet miscreants working at FOX. Imagine the nasty nefarious things that will be exposed. The unified fabrication of lies and propaganda. The defamation lawsuits alone could bankrupt FOX. Bill O'Reilly and Fox News secretly settled six agreements, totaling $45 million, with women who accused O'Reilly of sexual harassment.

    That will seem like peanuts when FOX is exposed along with Trump.

  5. Its a spit in our face how a British shill calls his segment "the Revolution". He is hijacking the birth of our nation for attention. God darn him

  6. Pruitt is doing great job! Everyone attacking him because he is getting shit done.I don't care how much Pruitt spends on travel or anything else as long as he keeps tearing epa down.EPA is a bunch of
    Thiefs

  7. Steve you did this entire trash piece to attack the EPA. Enjoy the pay off you received since your credibility can only be sold once. See you on CNN soon.

  8. UK here.. White loony with a gun kills folk in a Waffle House. Black guy hero.
    No Fox News coverage. Why?
    We all know Fox News is for pathetic old white racists.
    Sad but true.

  9. Yet you said nothing when the Obamas boy flew to LA on seperate Air Force One 747's or when Obama flew Hillary around to campaign stops .

  10. He us a great man
    N. They are mad, deep state knows what he has found out that they used slush funds that went to anti Republican groups

  11. President Trump's appointees should be required to fly commercial when they travel. Their tax paid travel expenses alone drain our taxpayer funds & add to the national debt. Dr. Ben Carson's wife spent quite a huge sum on Dr. Carson's dining table for his office. Why are they embarrassing the President this way? They are becoming swamp creatures themselves.

  12. I am surprised he has a job exposing swamp on FOX. This is not Trump propaganda, finally real news and not fake like Hannity and the rest of the lying crew.

  13. Trump is officially the worst president and biggest liar in the swamp ever, and the fact is, he's probably better than Hillary would have been.

  14. Swamp creatures now working for us…bringing in the stink…Trump needs to get rid of em lest he begins to stink right along with them.

  15. Ajit pai, nominated for a Republican Party position on the FCC by Barack Obama, Then designated chairman by Trump. Verizon's insider in the FCC made it to the top. Who is fighting Pai? the majority of voters, who is backing him. The Telecom giants. Follow the money as they say.

  16. The American people deserve to have their labor wasted…first they do nothing on their own behalf to prevent the outrageous taxation of their labor (totally UN-Constitutional) and they sit on their collective hands when they hear stories that their elected officials have used tax payer dollars to party all over the world. No guts no glory.

  17. Where was all this scrutiny when Clinton was Sec of State
    and Obama President as if they did nothing wrong? The level
    of hypocrisy is astounding. Did they break down the door of
    Clintons lawyer at 4am and seize all her computers, etc.? or
    go after her aides?

  18. Oh my !, I cannot believe Fox is actually reporting an unbiased article, WOW. Pity you don't send a copy of this over to the worlds greatest ass kisser Sean Hannity.

  19. Boo fu*king hoo! You fragile, leftist had NO problem when Obama’s EPA head, implemented numerous, job killing regulation for years. Now, Trumps EPA Head is undoing them! In the words of Barrack Obama,”elections have consequences, and we won!” Stick it snowflakes!

  20. The fact we got somebody from the EU talking about Trump. I don't believe any of it ! Trump 20/20 baby ! lot of these f**** like making a mountain out of a molehill ! better than it was !

  21. THE ONLY ABUSE OF POWER GOING ON HEAR IS YOUR LEADERS JUDGES AND ATTORNEYS AND YOUR AI YOUR ALL PHONEYS BECAUSE YOU REFUSE TO UNPLUG IT OLD WORLD ORDER SAME AS THE NEW WORLD ORDER AS I MYSELF DIE ALONG WITH EVERYONE ELSE AS WE ALL GET SLOWLY CONSUMED BY YOUR AI AND YOU ALL CALL YOURSELVS GENUISES WHEN IN FACT YOUR ALL STUPIDE AND RETARDED HIDING INSIDE YOUR BUNKERS BECAUSE THATS WHAT YOU WANT TO KILL EVERYONE OFF AS YOU SICK ONES HAVE SEX WITH LITTLE CHILDREN PERSONAL I WOULD DROP THE BOMB AND BLOW THIS WORLD BACK TO GOD BUT INSTEAD YOU ALL CONTINUE TO WANT TO BE GOD AS YOU ALL REMOVE GOD AND BESIDES THAT YOU ALL SMELL LIKE SHIT AND YOU ALL BELONG IN THE SEPTIC TANK YOURS TRULY DOG ON RICHARD

  22. If officials have done the right thing… President Trump will fire them at the RIGHT TIME.
    Relax people… President Trump has this!

  23. Trump is the nastiest swamp creature there is. If a democrat did what he did you people would be hunting him down with pitchforks. Of course, Fox News only says 3% of the story which fits the viewers worldview.

  24. Experienced Professionals in such specialized fields are hard to find without backgrounds in either direction, corporate to government and vice versa. Were do we get experienced and knowledgeable people to fill such positions?

  25. These dudes haven’t sold out their power to the lobbyists nor are they padding their pockets with industry bribes, but yes, they are abusing their privilege to access funding for work related trips. How does that relate to the moving back and forth from the private sector to the government sector complaint that is this piece’s original concern of possible industry influence on bureaucracy? Show us the bias dealings or bribes!! Other wise your full of shit.

  26. Anyone who follows and licks Trump s ass crack is an ass cracka white bread inbread white porch 🐒!!! You all fk each other no wonder your ass all dumb…

  27. Many of those in Trump's administration have serious safety/security issues and I, as a taxpayer, have no problem paying for their safe travel.

  28. This is not a credible assertion. Government bureaucrats and civil servants Abusing travel privileges is not in direct correlation with whether they have a lobbyist background or not. This is swampy behavior, but to claim this behavior is directly related to the fact that they have former experience as lobbyists is misleading and false. Shame on you FOX.

  29. Republicans are proven dirtbags, cheats and liars.
    Republicans are no different now than 17 years ago when they last had the presidency….
    UTRA-PARTISAN, AND RODICULOUSLY STUPID.
    I can't wait till the midterms……..

  30. Please, Hillary Clinton actually sold her influence as Secretary of State and she was never a lobbyist, how do you explain that!?

  31. Steve the swamp is a lot bigger then we could have imagined . Rome was not conquered over night . But I know how you feel.

  32. I can't handle listening to what the liberals are doing. I wish President Trump would fire them all and drain the swamp !!

  33. I don’t think Pruitt is the problem..he is draining the swamp in his agency.. THAT is why he is under attack! Getting the entrenched bureaucrats out is a problem!

  34. This is why we are where we are today. Do you really believe a lobbyist for corporations and special interest groups should be empowered to run the very Departments they lobbied for special treatment for years?

    We all know what lobbyists do they are the go between for the money and perks given to lawmakers to influence them to vote in favor of a bill or against a bill that does or doesn't benefit them. Yes it is bribery plain and simple and includes voter blocks like a union with hundreds of thousands of union votes. The whole system is corrupt and should be outlawed. No lobbyist should be allowed to have direct contact with a politician as WE the People will lose our right to a fair and impartial government.

    Remember WE ARE the largest armed force in history and WE are waiting! Until WE THE PEOPLE ourselves show up in Washington D.C. armed and standing on the steps they will continue the dog and pony show of investigations.We are the ones given the power by the Constitution to remove the corrupt government and WE have to act!

  35. The swamp is deep. As long as we're human there will be corruption, steeling, misappropriation of funds etc. But it's a start. At least it's called by mane instead of being ignored !

  36. Couple of things that were left out:
    -Kellyanne Conway's violation of the Hatch Act
    -Trump has spent 149 days as President at his own properties, in violation of the Emoluments clause since we're paying for the Secret Service to rent rooms and golf carts etc.
    -Ben Carson trying to buy a $31,000 dining set for his office
    -Just the fact that we are paying the salaries of people like Betsy DeVoss, Ryan Zinke, and Ben Carson since they have no business being the Sec of Education, Se of the Interior, and the head of HUD.

    I'm sure there are more, these were just the only ones I could think of off the top of my head.

  37. Someone said only today that we should not judge President Trump on what he says, especially his tweeties, but we should judge him on what he DOES. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLoWbDkF6cI

  38. "Drain the Swamp" isn't Trump's agenda. It was just a hollow, easy-to-remember campaign chant. Trump just filled the swamp with sewage, and you want to blame the floating turds. Hilarious.

  39. WE need to clean the Trash out of this Whitehouse: Definition of Trash by Webster: to throw away (something) : to cause great damage to (something) : to criticize (someone or something) very harshly. Let me break this down. Trump has discarded any signes of human decency, ethics and integrity in the whitehouse. Trump is causing damage to our democracy, Trump has criticised his Predecessors, his opponents, American citizens, Groups, organizations, our institutions, our media, our poor, our agencies, very harshly. By webster definition what we currently have in the Whitehouse is TRASH. Fortunately the American People know how to clean house and take out the Trash.

  40. USA is not safe until every Democrat-leech is removed from position. They are threat to US. Thank God Mr Trump has started the cleansing.

  41. Everyone has their pet "Drain the swamp" agenda. Everyone thinks that their agenda is more important than all others. So much corruption exists in government, that the SWAMP is tremendous and will take time to drain. Hang on! it will happen. We just need to be patient , sit back, enjoy spending your tax cut and trust "the plan." Our POTUS has not been in office 2 years yet.

  42. Where is Tucker Carlson ????? He's MIA for 3 days now after speaking about Syria Staged circus.
    WHERE IS HE ?????

  43. 4:37 – I have always some difficulties to find a nice wallpaper for my bedroom. Well, I'll take this one! A wallpaper made of Dollars what a great idea!… or not…

  44. Trump, drain the swamp? Ain’t gonna happen. They’re his people. He says he hires the best people. By his own admission, he understands the swamp as well as anyone does.

  45. DEAR PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP, RESISTANCE MOVEMENT TROLLS!

    Confucius Say:
    "Rome not build 1 day…BUT…last 1 Millennium".

    Whilst there is an ALL OUT, Democrat Resistant Movement in effect,
    WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?

    It's been only 16 months AND over 50 Republican Appointees are
    LINGERING IN THE DEMOCRAT RESTISTING SENATE, FOR APPROVAL.

    I would wager that, you didn't even Vote, in the last Elections.
    ISN'T THAT RIGHT?

    Who do you think you are fooling, RESISTERS?

  46. Lynch and most Obama’s people flew private so why now do they care about Trumps people double standard … tom Price did exactly what his preceder did flying pvt so why is only gop people getting in trouble for it look it up people

  47. This looks like he needs to be chasing car wrecks ! Some of these lawyers today are scary, and listen to what he says ! Its like one big club !

  48. Ben Carson cut billions in affordable housing for the poor and gave close to a billion in HUD grants to Hannity to buy real estate. Each and every one of Trumps appointees are corrupt like their boss. NOT surprised.

  49. Why did they leave the high paying lobby profession to become government employees? If they had a change of heart about running the government for the benefit of middle class taxpayers then thats a good thing. This is all inuendo with no facts of wrong doing. The congress is in constant oversight of all these people and no wrong doing has been alleged. Look at the results of the EPA, HUD, etc. Trumps appointees are reducing the departmental budgets with reduced manpower and efficient management. Swamp Watch can't see the forest for the trees. This guy is a pinhead.

  50. Swamp Watch is not interested in draining the swamp as the name implies. Their facebook page is 100% impeach Trump and 0% drain the swamp. For this show, Trump is the swamp and Obama is the hero of government.

  51. If it doesn't happen soon this country will be a dangerous place to live not that it isn't now .
