NY AG: Tillerson Used Fake Name To Talk Climate Change

In a letter to the judge on the case Monday, the Attorney General's Office said it discovered that former Exxon Chairman and CEO (and current Secretary of State) Rex Tillerson used an e-mail alias of "Wayne Tracker" to communicate with other Exxon executives.

The investigation began in November 2015, and on Monday, the attorney general's office sent a letter to New York County Supreme Court saying Exxon Mobil "has failed to comply in good faith" with a subpoena issued to produce documents from its top executives, including from the "Wayne Tracker" email account.

According to the news site, Tillerson, or should I say Tracker, Wayne Tracker, now has significant pull over matters related to climate change as the USA secretary of state.

White House requests $1.5 billion from Congress to begin border wall construction
After the report came out, Trump vowed to bring the price "way down", though he did not offer specifics. There are also already indicators that funding a total wall could be a tough sell in Congress.

"Despite the company's incidental production of approximately 60 documents bearing the "Wayne Tracker" email address, neither Exxon nor its counsel have ever disclosed that this separate email account was a vehicle for Mr. Tillerson's relevant communications at Exxon", Senior Enforcement Counsel John Oleske wrote in the letter. Sixty-four of those sent and received met the parameters for Schneiderman's climate change subpoena and were turned over to NY officials, Jeffers said.

Although Trump has vowed to reverse climate-change steps taken by former President Barack Obama, Exxon has said it believes it must address climate change.

Schneiderman made the claim in a letter Monday to Justice Barry Ostrager in NY state court in Manhattan, accusing Exxon of failing to turn over all relevant documents required by a court order. His "Red Rufus" email account, a reference to his call sign as a Marine pilot, is still his primary email address, Lutz said Tuesday in an email. It asked the judge to order Exxon to explain whether documents from the "Wayne Tracker" email and 34 additional accounts assigned to other Exxon executives and board members had been preserved.

Charges Announced in Massive Cyber Intrusion Case
After announcing the indictments US will put out another official request for their extradition, he said. The hack in question was initiated in 2014 and compromised over 500 million accounts .

The latest chapter was contained in a letter from Schneiderman to a NY district judge who oversees the probe.

"If they had nothing to hide, then why the secret email account?" said Jamie Henn, a spokesman for the environmental group 350.org, which has supported the state probes into Exxon. They said it was used to "send and receive materials regarding important matters" including climate change.

Ireland continue to insist they will gain no motivation from trying to spoil England's Grand Slam party in Dublin on Saturday. To me the English are quite reserved and they actually struggle quite a bit with success.
