U.S. Congress Votes for Corruption by Overturning Historic Transparency Law in Gift to Big Oil

Global Witness

The news comes just two days after Rex Tillerson, a longstanding opponent of the law while CEO of ExxonMobil, was confirmed as Secretary of State, and the day after the U.S. eased sanctions on Russia.
