Court Docs Allegedly Reveal NY AG Used Private Emails While Pursuing Exxon


Recommended Posts


Court documents show that the attorney general involved in a year-long probe targeting ExxonMobil’s climate records used a private email address to conduct official business.

Conservative legal group Energy and Environment Legal Institute (E&E Legal) explained in court documents Friday that New York AG Eric Schneiderman submitted a privilege log of correspondence containing the email account. A judge recognized the account was used after a private review of the log.

“The record reveals that the respondents [the NY AG’s office] took great pains to hide the true facts of the Attorney General’s use of private email addresses in an effort to stave off a court-ordered supplemental search,” the document notes.

Schneiderman’s office claimed in May that a search for personal email addresses was unnecessary because of the AG office’s policy of prohibiting use of private emails for public. The New York Democrat’s office has had issues with private email accounts in the past.


Democrats seem to be good at this sort of thing...
