This week during CNN’s Climate Town Hall 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and California Sen. Kamala Harris said she will take on Big Oil and other powerful interests when they “profit off of harmful behaviors” such as burning fossil fuels. Then she lied her a*** off.
In answer to a direct question, Kamala claimed she already took on Big Oil and other powerful interests as California’s attorney general.
Moderator Erin Burnett asked Kamala: “So, Senator Harris, what would you do? Would you sue them? Sue Exxon Mobil?”
“I have sued Exxon Mobil,” Harris replied.
But did she really sue Exxon Mobil though?
Short answer: No, not at all.
The long answer:
Even Politifact reports that Sen. Kamala Harris’ claims at the recent CNN climate town hall that she “sued Exxon Mobil” as California attorney general is false.
Harris opened an investigation into Exxon Mobil over allegations it was lying to the public and its shareholders about climate change. But there’s no public evidence, or any from her campaign, that she ever filed a lawsuit against the company.
Harris did sue other oil companies and win settlements over allegations they violated various state laws governing hazardous materials, according to information provided by her campaign. But none of that includes a lawsuit against Exxon.
Harris clearly tangled with Big Oil as California AG. There’s just no record she sued one of the industry’s biggest companies, Exxon.
