New Report Adds Evidence of AG Collusion with #ExxonKnew Activists
The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) is out with a bombshell report today chock-full of new revelations of inappropriate and “likely unconstitutional” climate activist influence and infiltration of state attorneys’ general’s offices. The report, crafted around emails obtained by CEI senior fellow Chris Horner over a two-and-a-half-year period, provides devastating new evidence of the #ExxonKnew activists’ work to push law enforcement officials to abuse their power. It offers the most comprehensive counterpoint to date of a federal judge’s dismissal of ExxonMobil’s complaint against the New York and Massachusetts attorneys general.
The report presents some of the strongest evidence yet to refute U.S. District Court Judge Valerie Caproni’s ruling earlier this year that questioned whether plaintiffs’ attorney Matt Pawa and his activist allies played any role in pushing state attorneys general to investigate ExxonMobil based on its public statements about climate change. As Energy In Depth reported at the time, Judge Caproni ignored a substantial sum of evidence detailing their activities, including statements made by the activists themselves to Congress.
