Exxon Comes Out Blasting Against Crusading NY AG

ExxonMobil blasted New York’s attorney general for being behind a years-long probe into the company apparently based on a phony email scandal.

The company’s legal representatives accused Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, a Democrat, of manufacturing an email scandal involving now-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to provide a rationale for his investigation, according to court documents filed Thursday in New York.

“To date, Exxon Mobil has produced more than 2.4 million pages of documents in connection with the [New York attorney general’s] climate-change investigation and has worked diligently to respond to [Schneiderman’s] extraordinarily broad and, in our view, often unreasonable and improper, investigative demands,” the lawyers wrote in a letter to the Supreme Court of New York Thursday night.

Schneiderman has not been able to uncover any evidence supporting his belief that Exxon worked for decades to dupe the public about climate change, the letter added.
