In the land of the free, apparently you can now be sued by the Obama administration if you don’t believe in global warming!
During a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting today, Attorney General Loretta Lynch was asked the following question by Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse:
Under President Clinton, the Department of Justice brought and won a civil RICO action against the tobacco industry for its fraud. Under President Obama, the Department of Justice has done nothing so far about the climate denial scheme.
A request for action by the Department of Justice has been referred by you to the FBI. My question to you is other than civil forfeitures and matters attendant to a criminal case, are there other circumstances in which a civil matter under the authority of the Department of Justice has been referred to the FBI?
Lynch’s answer was chilling:
Senator, thank you for raising that issue, and thank you for your work in this area. I know your commitment is deep.
This matter has been discussed. We have received information about it and have referred it to the FBI to consider whether or not it meets the criteria for which we could take action on. I’m not aware of a civil referral at this time.
I will look into that and get back to you, but I’m not aware of a civil referral outside of the one that you just raised,’ added Lynch.
So, Lynch admits that the Department of Justice has asked the FBI to investigate “climate denial schemes.”
So, apparently you’re a potential criminal if you’re skeptical of an unproven theory that’s supported using dubious computer models and lacking real-world verification. Wow. Just wow.
