ExxonMobil statement regarding New York Attorney General civil complaint

IRVING, Texas — The New York Attorney General’s office doubled down on its tainted, meritless investigation by filing a complaint against ExxonMobil.

These baseless allegations are a product of closed-door lobbying by special interests, political opportunism and the attorney general’s inability to admit that a three-year investigation has uncovered no wrongdoing. 

The company looks forward to refuting these claims as soon as possible and getting this meritless civil lawsuit dismissed.

There is no evidence to support these allegations, which come after a 2016 press conference by former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, Al Gore and other Democrat attorneys general, a discredited media campaign and lobbying by anti-fossil fuel activists.
