Watchdog.org reports on CEI's response to the subpoena they recieved from Attorney General Claude Walker.
In a sternly worded letter, the attorney for a limited-government group being targeted by the climate-change police is calling out the attorney general who launched an unprecedented campaign on free speech.
“The subpoena that you served on the Competitive Enterprise Institute (“CEI”) is a blatant attempt to intimidate and harass an organization for advancing views that you oppose,” wrote Andrew Grossman in the letter sent Wednesday to Claude E. Walker, attorney general of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
“There is no way to understand your demand that CEI turn over all of its internal documents concerning climate change and its communications with a corporation, ExxonMobil, other than as an effort to punish it for its public policy views, chill its associations, and silence its advocacy,” Grossman, partner at Washington, D.C.-based Baker Hostetler.
“Your demand on CEI is offensive, it is un-American, it is unlawful, and it will not stand,” Grossman wrote in the letter. “You can either withdraw it or expect to fight, because CEI strongly believes that this campaign to intimidate those who dissent from the official orthodoxy on climate change must be stopped.”
