Bombshell In WaPo/Keystone Scandal: Did the Post Coordinate With Congressional Democrats?
Power Line ^ | March 26, 2014 | John Hinderaker

Posted on 03/26/2014 9:56:44 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

A major development occurred today in the scandal surrounding the Washington Post’s attempt to advance Democratic Party talking points by falsely linking Koch Industries to the Keystone Pipeline. In the unlikely event that you are not already familiar with the story, you should begin by reading this post and this one, as well as the one from last October where I dismantled the International Forum on Globalization report that was the basis for the Washington Post’s story of March 20.

The facts, very briefly, are these: Koch Industries has no interest in the Keystone Pipeline; it has not lobbied in favor of the pipeline; if the pipeline is built, Koch will make no use of it to ship oil from Alberta or anywhere else; and construction of Keystone would actually damage Koch’s economic interests by raising the price of midwestern oil that flows to Koch’s Pine Bend refinery. The reporters who wrote the Post article that tried to portray Koch as the driving force behind the Keystone pipeline, Juliet Eilperin and Steven Mufson, did not dispute any of these facts.

After my first post appeared, Eilperin and Mufson tried halfheartedly to respond to it. They posed the question, why did they write the article, given all of the facts that Power Line pointed out? Their answer was: “[I]ssues surrounding the Koch brothers’ political and business interests will stir and inflame public debate in this election year.” So their intention in writing the article was explicitly political.

But it may have been even more political, and more nakedly partisan, than we suspected. Today Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and Democratic Congressman Henry Waxman wrote a letter to David Robertson, President and COO of Koch Industries. The Democrats’ letter was premised almost entirely on the Washington Post’s discredited article; it repeatedly footnoted that article and the IFG report on which the Post story was based. The two Democrats concluded by requesting that Koch answer questions and produce a long series of documents relating in various ways to the Keystone pipeline.

The Democrats’ letter raises an obvious question: did the Washington Post publish its article attempting to link Koch to Keystone at the request of Whitehouse and/or Waxman, or at the request of other Democrats who were coordinating with Whitehouse and Waxman? Given the blatantly political purpose to which the Post’s article has now been put, it is reasonable to inquire into its genesis: was it a Democratic Party plant from the start?

Here is the Whitehouse/Waxman letter:

March 26, 2014 David L. Robertson President and Chief Operating Officer Koch Industries, Inc. P.O. Box 2256 Wichita, KS 67201-2256

Dear Mr. Robertson:

We are writing to learn whether Koch Industries or any of its affiliated companies has a financial interest in the Keystone XL pipeline. Groups backed by Charles and David Koch have lobbied and run political ads to support construction of the pipeline. But Koch Industries has consistently denied financial motives played any role in these activities, asserting that the Keystone XL pipeline has “nothing to do with any of our businesses.” We want to know whether this is true.

There is mounting evidence that Koch Industries has a financial interest in the Keystone XL pipeline. The Washington Post reports that Koch Oil Sands Operating ULC holds at least 298 Alberta Crown Oil Sands leases covering 1.1 million acres in the tar sands region of Alberta.[1] According to the Washington Post, these holdings make Koch Industries at least “one of the region’s largest” leaseholders.[2] The actual holdings could be “closer to two million,” according to “highly authoritative” industry sources.[3] The group that first disclosed these leases, the International Forum on Globalization (IFG), told the Washington Post that Koch Industries will “reap huge benefits” from the Keystone XL pipeline by reducing the cost of shipping tar sands.[4] IFG estimated that Koch Industries could make “an additional $100 billion in profits” as better market access boosts the prices for tar sands products across the board.[5]

Another subsidiary of Koch Industries, Flint Hills Resources, LLP, is “among Canada’s largest crude oil purchasers, shippers, and exporters” and owns a crude oil terminal in Hardisty, Alberta, where the Keystone XL pipeline will begin.[6] When Canada’s National Energy Board held hearings on the Keystone XL pipeline in 2009, Flint Hills sought intervenor status because of its “direct and substantial interest” in the pipeline. According to Flint Hills’s filing:

Flint Hills Resources Canada LLP (“Flint Hills”) is among Canada’s largest crude oil purchasers, shippers and exporters, coordinating supply for its refinery in Pine Bend, Minnesota. Consequently, Flint Hills has a direct and substantial interest in the application.[7]

Koch also owns at least two refineries that process tar sands or could do so. One of the refineries is Koch’s Pine Bend Refinery in Minnesota, which in 2011 processed 25% of the tar sands imported into the United States.[8] The other is Koch’s Corpus Christi refinery, which is located near the end of the Keystone XL pipeline and would be a potential buyer for tar sands crude shipped through the pipeline.[9]

If these reports are right, Koch Industries has interests at virtually every point along the tar sands supply chain: it owns a company that holds extensive leases in Canadian tar sands; it owns a company that purchases, ships, and exports tar sands from Canada; and it owns a company that refines the tar sands imported into the United States. Each of these businesses would appear to benefit from construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. The single greatest obstacle to tar sands development is the lack of access to markets. Investment banks, tar sands producers, and the Canadian government have all pointed to market access, and specifically pipelines, as crucial to meeting goals to expand production. These entities have also identified Keystone XL as the largest, most viable, nearest term, and least costly means of expanding that market access.

Koch Industries has been asked about these ties in the past and has consistently denied having any interest in the pipeline. In 2011, staff for Rep. Waxman contacted Koch Industries to learn more about the company’s role in the Keystone XL pipeline and Canadian tar sands. On May 19, 2011, representatives of Koch Industries told the staff that the Keystone XL pipeline has “nothing to do with any of our businesses” and that Koch had “no financial interest” in the pipeline.[10] Philip Ellender, the President for Government and Public Affairs at Koch Companies Public Sector, LLC, subsequently wrote: “We have stated publicly and repeatedly, including last week when questioned by the staff of Congressman Waxman, that we have no financial stake in the pipeline.”[11] These statements were made while the House Energy and Commerce Committee was actively considering legislation to expedite federal approval of the Keystone XL pipeline.

These denials were apparently persuasive to members of Congress. When the House Energy and Commerce Committee held a May 23, 2011, hearing on the Keystone XL pipeline, Chairman Upton dismissed the evidence of a link between Koch investments and the pipeline as an “outrageous accusation” and a “blatant political sideshow.”[12] At a January 25, 2012, legislative hearing on a bill related to Keystone XL, Chairman Whitfield stated: “the Koch brothers have nothing to do with this project.”[13]

At the same time that Koch Industries has been denying any connection to the pipeline, Koch-backed groups have launched extensive campaigns to support the construction of the pipeline. One of these groups, Americans for Prosperity, which was founded by David Koch, has run a multi-year pressure campaign in favor of the Keystone XL pipeline, including airing ads against members of Congress for opposing the pipeline.[14] Another Koch-linked group, the American Energy Alliance, spent millions of dollars on an ad campaign in the last election cycle that “hammers Obama for his decision on the Keystone XL pipeline.”[15]

Consistent with these efforts, Koch-affiliated entities have been leading funders of those who seek to undermine the broad scientific consensus establishing the relationship between the use of carbon-based fuel and climate change. This industry-funded “research” manufactures doubt about the science to distort the public’s understanding of climate change and delay or prevent government policies to address the issue. Recent research documents how funding for this work has become increasingly dominated by anonymous donor-directed funds, further obfuscating connections between so-called climate change deniers and those most ready to profit from their work.[16]

We believe that Congress and the public have a right to know when individuals funding political ads and attempting to influence government decisions have a financial stake in the outcome. We certainly believe it would be wrong for any company to mislead Congress and the public by falsely describing its economic stake in legislation.

We are seeking additional information from you to clarify the facts. We want to know what holdings Koch Industries or its affiliated companies may have that could be affected by the Keystone XL pipeline. For this reason, we ask that you provide us with responses to the following questions and document requests:

1. How many Alberta Crown Oil Sands leases do Koch Industries or its subsidiaries hold? How many acres are covered by these leases? Please provide documents sufficient to demonstrate the accuracy of your responses.

2. How many exploratory wells have Koch Industries or its subsidiaries or their contractors drilled on their leased land in Alberta? How many production wells have Koch Industries or its subsidiaries or their contractors drilled on their leased land in Alberta? Please provide documents sufficient to demonstrate the accuracy of your responses.

3. What is the current level of production from the leases owned by Koch Industries or its subsidiaries on their leased land in Alberta? How many total barrels of tar sands-derived oil[17] have Koch Industries or its subsidiaries produced on their leased land in Alberta? What is the expected annual level of production for each of the next ten years from land leased in Alberta by Koch Industries or its subsidiaries? Please provide documents sufficient to demonstrate the accuracy of your responses.

4. What is the estimated total recoverable resource from the land leased in Alberta by Koch Industries or its subsidiaries? Please provide documents sufficient to demonstrate the accuracy of your response.

5. If additional pipeline capacity, starting with Keystone XL, is approved that allows tar sands products access to world markets, would that raise or lower the value of your lease holdings? Please provide documents sufficient to demonstrate the accuracy of your response.

6. How much oil derived from Canadian tar sands do refineries owned by Koch Industries or its subsidiaries refine each year? Which refineries owned by Koch Industries or its subsidiaries refine oil derived from Canadian tar sands? Please provide documents sufficient to demonstrate the accuracy of your responses.

7. How would the volume of oil derived from Canadian tar sands refined by refineries owned by Koch Industries or its subsidiaries be affected by the approval or disapproval of the Keystone XL pipeline? Please provide documents sufficient to demonstrate the accuracy of your responses.

How much of this oil derived from Canadian tar sands is shipped or exported to the United States by Koch Industries or its subsidiaries, including Flint Hills Resources? Please provide documents sufficient to demonstrate the accuracy of your responses.

9. If additional pipeline capacity, starting with Keystone XL, is approved that allows tar sands products access to world markets, would that raise or lower the value of the Canadian tar sands oil purchased, shipped and exported by Koch Industries or its subsidiaries, including Flint Hills Resources,? Please provide documents sufficient to demonstrate the accuracy of your responses.

10. Does Koch Industries or its subsidiaries have plans to export oil derived from Canadian tar sands through the Keystone XL pipeline? Please provide documents sufficient to demonstrate the accuracy of your responses.

11. Since 2009, how much funding has Koch Industries, the Koch Affiliated Foundations, their subsidiaries or related entities provided to organizations or individuals that conduct or support climate science research? What are the names of those organizations or individuals? During that same time period, has Koch Industries, the Koch Affiliated Foundations, their subsidiaries or related entities funded or made contributions to Donors Trust/Capital? If so, what conditions, if any, were place on the investment and future distributions of those funds?

Your cooperation in providing this information to Congress would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Henry A. Waxman Ranking Member Committee on Energy and Commerce

Sheldon Whitehouse Subcommittee on Oversight, Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works

Coincidence? Maybe. But it seems likely that the Washington Post article was a put-up job, cobbled together and based on a ridiculous report written, apparently, by a couple of high school-age interns at the International Forum on Globalization, for the specific purpose of serving as the pretense for Whitehouse and Waxman to push the Democratic Party’s talking points. Is this what happened? I don’t know, but we would like to find out. Toward that end, I have requested that the Washington Post produce relevant information and documents to me. I have the same right to request information and documents of the Washington Post that Waxman and Whitehouse have to request information and documents from Koch Industries. My email to the Post follows:

To: juliet.eilperin@washpost.com steven.mufson@washpost.com readers@washpost.com emilio.garcia-ruiz@washpost.com veronica.dillon@washpost.com

From: John Hinderaker

Date: March 26, 2014

On March 20, you wrote an article in the Washington Post that attempted to link Koch Industries to the Keystone Pipeline. Your article suggested that Koch is, or may be, the driving force behind the pipeline. I criticized your article at http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2014/03/washington-post-falls-for-left-wing-fraud-embarrasses-itself.php, and you attempted, briefly, to respond to my critique. I wrote a subsequent post at http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2014/03/the-washington-post-responds-to-me-and-i-reply-to-the-post.php, to which you have made no rejoinder.

In response to my initial post, you said that you wrote the article linking Koch to Keystone for political reasons: “[I]ssues surrounding the Koch brothers’ political and business interests will stir and inflame public debate in this election year.” The significance of that admission became evident today when Democrats Henry Waxman and Sheldon Whitehouse wrote a letter to Koch Industries, questioning whether Koch has some interest in the Keystone Pipeline in reliance on your March 20 article and the IFG “report” that you cited. Many thousands of readers of my posts will wonder whether the Post’s story was a put-up job: a collaborative effort between you and Congressional Democrats, intended to serve as a pretext for politically-motivated harassment of Koch Industries, one of America’s premier companies.

Relying on your thoroughly-debunked March 20 article, Waxman and Whitehouse posed a long series of questions to Koch and requested various documents. I have the same right to request information that they do, and therefore I ask that the Washington Post answer the following questions and produce the following documents:

1) Prior to publication of the referenced article on or about March 20, 2014, did either Juliet Eilperin or Steven Mufson have any conversation or exchange any written documents relating to the subject matter of the article with Sheldon Whitehouse, Henry Waxman, any other Democratic member of the House or Senate, or any member of the staff of any Democratic Senator or Representative, or the staff of any House or Senate committee? If so, please state the time and place of all such conversations, identify all participants, describe the conversations in detail, and identify all responsive documents.

2) Prior to the publication of the referenced article on or about March 20, 2014, did either Juliet Eilperin or Steven Mufson have any conversation or exchange any written documents relating to the subject matter of the article with Tom Steyer, Andrew Light, John Podesta, or any employee or representative of the Center for American Progress? If so, please state the time and place of all such conversations, identify all participants, describe the conversations in detail, and identify all responsive documents.

3) Identify by name, address, phone number and business affiliation or employment every person with whom either Juliet Eilperin or Steven Mufson spoke or exchanged emails or other correspondence in connection with the referenced article that was published on or about March 20, 2014.

4) Produce all emails, letters, notes, memos or other documents in any form, whether paper or electronic, that contain or refer to any communications between Juliet Eilperin or Steven Mufson and Sheldon Whitehouse, Henry Waxman, any other Democratic member of the House or Senate, any member of the staff of any House or Senate Democrat, or any staffer for any Congressional committee, that relate in any way to the subject matter of the referenced article that was published on or about March 20, whether such documents predate or postdate publication of the referenced article.

5) Produce all emails, letters, notes, memos or other documents in any form, whether paper or electronic, that contain or refer to any communications between Juliet Eilperin or Steven Mufson and John Podesta, Tom Steyer, Andrew Light or any employee or representative of the Center for American Progress that relate in any way to the subject matter of the referenced article that was published on or about March 20, whether such documents predate or postdate publication of the referenced article.

I recognize that there is not currently pending any litigation in which court process would require the Washington Post to produce the requested information and documents. However, I trust that the Post will want to respond to the concerns that are felt by many thousands of readers as to whether the newspaper has allowed itself to be used as a foil and a pretext for the advancement of Democratic Party talking points that “will stir and inflame public debate in this election year.”

I look forward to your prompt responses to my requests.

I will keep our readers apprised of developments.

Koch good, Keystone good. How is linking the two going to help the National Socialists?

let's see: a far left newspaper is coordinating its stories with the democratic party, whose boots they lick on a daily basis.

How does this qualify as a "bombshell"?

Did leftist low-life Jeff Bezos’ Washingon Compost smear against both the Keystone XL pipeline and the Koch brothers just follow the usual pattern of meme-building by Partisan Media Shills? Why would anyone doubt it?

Thanks 2ndDivisionVet!

The fourth estate will take the Fifth and refuse to answer.

The whole thing (Democrats + WaPo) appears to be a fishing expedition to extract info on the Koch family businesses for future use by Democrats. I doubt that it has anything to do with the XL Pipeline.

The International Forum on Globalization is a mixed bag of liberals, leftists and hardcore communists. Two of their leaders, Walden Bello and John Cavanagh, have significant histories of affiliations with marxist groups and causes.

Bello has been positively linked to the maoist New Peoples Army in the Philippines, eventhough he is a college professor there. Also arranged the violent WTO (World Trade Organization) protests in Seattle.
Was a writer for the now defunct maoist-funded/oriented US weekly the “Guardian”.

Also a member of the pro-NPA front “Friends of the Filipino People”, among other communist fronts.

Cavanagh has been a major player in the marxist-directed and funded “Institute for Policy Studies”. See the book “Covert Cadre: Inside the Institute for Policy Studies”, S.Steven Powell, 1987 for the details.

IPS was significantly funded by Soviet asset and Communist Party USA member Samuel Rubin (Foundation), whose daughter was one of Hanoi’s top operatives, Cora Weiss (wife of German marxist Peter Weiss, IPS, NLG, CCR, etc).

Cavanagh was a longtime leader of IPS projects.

Some of the other IFG have leftist affiliations mainly through organizations. What is needed is a real breakdown of who these people are and where they came from.

Some interesting things should come out of it.

It is not surprising that the Wash. Post would use IFG materials to smear the Koch Brothers. The Post has been one of the biggest promoter of IPS people/writers in the country and WP writers have participated in IPS media projects and their Washington School.

Once you know the players, you will know what their goals are.

If there is a Whitehouse connection, it might be possible to give this more exposure indirectly by connecting it to government corruption in hearings on same.

I don't understand how Waxman has any business asking, actually demanding under color of authority, the questions to Koch Industries. Especially considering they're based on a discredited politically motivated newspaper article.

They'll assert press privilege, if they reply at all.

Now, what might be fun would to have the letter come from discovery, after Koch sues WaPo for defamation.
