DOJ is Investigating Automakers for Keeping Emissions Low

Recommended Posts

In what seems to be a move made purely out of spite from the Trump administration, the DOJ has launched an antitrust investigation into four automakers that agreed to meet California's more strict emissions standards. Ford, Honda, BMW, and VW are under investigation for the CA deal that was announced in July. 



Trump has been trying to rollback Obama era emissions standards, but in general automakers haven't been going along with it. As Trump has been fighting for the rollback, automakers have largely decided to side with California, likely in an effort to avoid regulatory uncertainty in federal law. That has made Trump try and revoke CAs waiver, a legal move that it seems they're unlikely to win.


This investigation just reeks of pettiness and spite, and it feels like an abuse of power.
