Report: Leaked Steyer Memo Shows Coordinated Effort to Attack ExxonMobil

A new report from The Daily Caller reveals that liberal megadonor Tom Steyer used three of his environmental organizations to coordinate with politicians against ExxonMobil and the oil industry.

According to a leaked memo, obtained by Chris White of the Caller, Steyer used three of his organizations to conduct an effort “leveraging the ExxonMobil investigation” against the oil industry.

White reports, “Fahr LLC, Next Gen America and TomKat Foundation hashed out ways to ‘weaken the political influence of the oil industry by leveraging the ExxonMobil investigation’ during a strategy meeting in November 2015, the memo notes.”

But the revelations go further, showing that Steyer himself may have worked with disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and pressured then-New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph Foster to support the case:

Ted White, a lawyer for Fahr LLC who attended the November 2015 meeting, sent an email to Erin Suhr, director of strategic planning at Fahr LLC, noting “Eric Schneiderman would like to have a call with Tom regarding support for his race for governor . . . regarding Exxon case.”

Steyer, a Democratic financier who is also waging a crusade to get President Donald Trump impeached, has waged his own private crusade in the past against Exxon. NextGen held a rally in April 2016 to push former New Hampshire AG Joseph Foster to take up the anti-Exxon message. The group continued to push and prod the Democrat to pursue Exxon.

But Steyer denied any involvement in the effort, White notes, pointing out that he told Politico he was not working to influence the investigation.

Steyer’s latest project is a multimillion dollar effort to impeach President Trump, running ads and holding town halls across the country. He is a possible candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.
