Emails Suggest Dem Sen. Whitehouse Is Behind The Effort To Prosecute Global Warming Skeptics

-

Scientists calling for the Justice Department to prosecute global warming skeptics may have had some help from a prominent Democratic senator, according to email records obtained by a free market think tank.

Emails obtained by the Competitive Enterprise Institute and independently verified by The Daily Caller News Foundation suggest Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse consulted with a group of scientists who later sent a pointed letter to the White House and Department of Justice. The letter demanded the feds launch a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO, investigation into “the fossil fuel industry and their supporters.”
