There are also multiple inquiries into Pruitt's lease of a $50-a-night Capitol Hill condo in 2017 from lobbyist Vicki Hart. Pruitt served as the head of the association previously when he was Oklahoma's attorney general.

Shine, who started his two-decade-long career at Fox News as a producer for the show "Hannity & Colmes", was ousted from his role as co-president previous year after lawsuits suggested he enabled alleged sexual harassment by the network's late chairman and chief executive, Roger Ailes. Her position remains unfilled.

"I say this as someone who was on Fox for a decade and had no beef (though little interaction) with Bill Shine: It's a disgrace that a man who, it turns out, enabled and covered up truly repulsive behavior by Roger Ailes, would get a senior White House job", said Bill Kristol, editor at large of The Weekly Standard in a tweet.
