The mayor of the city of New York has officially threatened Wells Fargo Bank because they are providing some funding for the Dakota Access Pipeline.
People on the left like hizzoner thought they had the pipeline effectively shut down until the election of 2016. Now that Donald Trump is President he is giving the go-ahead to projects like these. Those on the left are having to resort to other means, including illegal bully tactics, to try to get their way. In doing so they are increasing the public’s distrust and disgust ot far-left Democrats.
“De Blasio Threatens Wells Fargo Over Dakota Access Pipeline”
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio threatened Wells Fargo bank for its investment in the North Dakota Access Pipeline.
In a February 17 letter to Wells Fargo CEO Timothy Sloan, de Blasio said he wanted to “express my deep concern about your involvement, and the involvement of other banks, in financing the Dakota Access Pipeline,” noting his concern is partly based on being a Mayor of a “coastal city threatened by climate change.”
De Blasio stated three times int the letter that he is a person in charge of the funds of “long-term investors” with more than $165 billion in assets established to pay for the benefits of over 700,000 active and retired New York City workers.”
That, dear readers, is a threat.
