Tillerson's Missing Climate Change Emails Reveal Exxon Investigation ‘Bombshell’ (VIDEO)

Tillerson’s Missing Climate Change Emails Reveal Exxon Investigation ‘Bombshell’ (VIDEO)

As per its Manhattan Supreme Court confession, Wednesday, Exxon Mobil just can’t seem to find an entire year’s worth of Secretary of State and former company CEO Rex Tillerson’s emails… or can they?

All missing emails are tied to Tillerson’s unearthed alias account, “Wayne Tracker,” based in part on his middle name, Wayne—but that can all be explained. According to Exxon legal representation, the emails were lost due to “computer issues.” It certainly has nothing to do with the fact that New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is currently investigating Tillerson, and others, for allegedly duping investors regarding Exxon’s findings on climate change, right? This is just—what do you call it?—a coincidence.

Of course it is. Corporations and government officials never lie, and they never chop down cherry trees, either. Everyone knows that. Long live the cherry tree!

Naturally, that kook in the state senior enforcement counsel, John Oleske, tagged the discovery a “bombshell.”

Tillerson had been sending emails as Wayne Tracker for seven years, from 2008 to 2015. Though little more than an entire year of those emails was missing, from Sept. 5, 2014, to Sept. 16, 2015, Exxon lawyers claim they have now “recovered” nine months of them. Many questions linger, no doubt, regarding the roughly three months that remain missing, as well as why Tillerson felt the need to communicate incognito.

In order to get to the bottom of the matter to determine if obstruction of justice may be at play, Judge Barry Ostrager ordered “sworn statements and records from [Exxon’s] staffers responsible for monitoring the ‘Wayne Tracker’ emails.” He asserted that “both sides try to work out their difference about the missing emails.” Fortunately, he also stipulated that Exxon must “comply by March 31 with Schneiderman’s 16-month old subpoena for records,” lending a little more teeth to his orders.

So far, Exxon has released some 2 million pages to the office of the attorney general, spanning across 416,000 documents; however, more are clearly needed for the public to know the truth of what Tillerson and Exxon were up to, and may very well still be up to.

Spokesperson for Exxon, Alan Jeffers, stated the missing emails and records would be minimal, as many missing on Tillerson’s end could be rallied together via the recipients of those emails. It is unclear whether that statement suggests a means for viewing the nine months of “recovered” emails, or a means for securing and viewing the remaining missing three months. So far, no word has been stated as to whether the documented emails have been manipulated in any regard, either.

Tillerson’s alias was discovered by the attorney general’s office through their meticulous investigation of Exxon’s records.

Imagine the crimes and obstructions to justice the American public will have to deal with once these corporate and government elites finally learn how to cover their tracks effectively.
