Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, who used a secret email alias during her time at the agency, lashed out Tuesday at the Trump administration for destroying the agency’s credibility by being “non-transparent.”…

In Ms. Jackson’s case, she used the alias “Richard Windsor” for her official EPA email account — including at one point pretending to be her own assistant in order to fool a would-be emailer.
