A Closer Look at the RFK Jr.-Schneiderman Memo
New documents reveal controversial environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. sent a memo in January 2016 to former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman that argues for banning ExxonMobil from conducting business in the state of New York as a consequence for failing “to serve ‘the common good’” for allegedly misleading the public on the effects of climate change.
