Statement and Background on Tillerson and ExxonMobil’s Support: Climate Denial, Human Rights Violations, and Corruption
WASHINGTON - Today, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee begins its confirmation hearing for former ExxonMobil CEO, Rex Tillerson for secretary of state.
Erich Pica, President of Friends of the Earth, issued the following comment:
Tillerson has backed human rights violations, corruption, and environmental devastation that disqualify him from becoming the top U.S. diplomat. The Senate should rise above Trump’s hideous pick and reject Tillerson’s nomination for Secretary of State.
