Oh, and you may want to consider taking a good look at yourselves. In addition to BlackRock, State Street and Vanguard, throw in JP Morgan as huge fossil fuel investor, too. https://t.co/R8Ildvs5YJ — PolitiTweet.org

When you’re considering voting out directors of fossil fuel (& other) companies, be sure to take into consideration the lobbying/electioneering on climate they support. Worst two climate obstructors: @USChamber & NAM, supported by many corporate members. https://t.co/d9NiPCKD29 — PolitiTweet.org

Fossil fuel interests protect their “great fortunes .... from government action to make them internalize the damage they’re imposing on the world,” because “we have more private money in politics than any other advanced economy.” — PolitiTweet.org

What is the end game? Likely, House goes to court to enforce subpoenas. Likely, Trump appeals to Supreme Court. Ultimately, the end game is to count on ‘Roberts & The Boy-os’ for Bush v. Gore 2.0, a 5-4 political decision saving a Republican president. https://t.co/AvJykl3vm5 — PolitiTweet.org

Hoo boy, check out the dissenting judge here: Kavanaugh successor, @FedSoc stooge & @realDonaldTrump nominee Neomi Rao. This is why Trump is packing the courts with political hacks. If there were more on this panel, they’d have covered up for him. https://t.co/ROFT62EF0q — PolitiTweet.org

“Sorry. We’re still waiting for instructions from @MarathonPetroCo and the refiners.” Just like the decision to freeze fuel economy standards for cars and revoke California’s waiver, where it looks like Marathon captured the process. https://t.co/6sfT2o5ZUl — PolitiTweet.org

We are so innocent. To think this is even a question! 73 partisan 5-4 decisions under Roberts helped big Republican donor interests; half of them contrary to conservative judicial philosophies. It’s all about who wins (73-0), not principle. https://t.co/cxTXVqv0Zq — PolitiTweet.org
