No, Kamala Harris Did Not Sue Exxon Mobil

No, Kamala Harris Did Not Sue Exxon Mobil
Washington Free Beacon, Sep 6, 2019, Collin Anderson

Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris inaccurately claimed during Wednesday's CNN climate town hall that she sued oil giant Exxon Mobil.

When asked by CNN's Erin Burnett if she would sue Exxon Mobil as president, Harris responded, "I have sued Exxon Mobil" to applause.

But Harris has not sued Exxon Mobil. As California attorney general, she launched a 2016 investigation into the oil company. The investigation, however, "stalled when Harris decided to run for the Senate," according to the Los Angeles Times. A department spokesman confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon that the attorney general's office had not sued the company.

Harris benefited politically from the investigation, but a lawsuit never followed. She received more than $70,000 from environmentalist groups during the 2016 and 2018 cycles, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. One environmental organization cited the investigation as the "direct" reason it endorsed her Senate campaign.

1. Kammy "investigated" Exxon-Mobil, but did not sue them.

2. More than 2 1/2 years since Kammy became a US Senator, Kammy's successor has not sued Exxon-Mobil. So Kammy cannot, truthfully, even claim to have laid a foundation for suing Exxon-Mobil.

Not that Kammy cares about any principles beyond acquiring and exercising power. She is so unprincipled and tyrannous-at-heart - like Hillary, but much younger and more ruthless - that Dems should be scared of her.
