Most administrations wait till at least the 100th day to start being dragged down with scandals. Nixon was deep into his second term before Deep Throat forced him to resign. It looks like Wayne Tracker is about to take down Rex Tillerson faster than a drunk captain can spill millions of gallons of oil from the Exxon Valdez.
It has come to light that Secretary of State and former Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson may have used an alias email address to talk to other Exxon officials about “important matters, including those concerning the risk-management issues related to climate change,” New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said in a letter to a judge.
Wayne Tracker apparently was the fictitious name Tillerson used to talk about the mounting pile of evidence that climate change was real and the irreparable damage that companies like Exxon Mobil were doing.
Schneiderman previously had requested all documents concerning what Exxon Mobil knew or did not know of the dangers that the products his company peddled had on the environment; however, these sixty emails were hidden.
Questions now arises on everyone’s minds: What did the oil giants know of their product’s harmful side effects to the survival of the planet and every living species on it? When did they know it?
To what lengths did they go to hide this information once they had it? How many politicians around the globe did they bribe? Ultimately, what acts did Exxon take to protect its profits and shareholders at the risk of the people and the planet?
