AUTO INDUSTRY/CALIFORNIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Monday’s [10-28-19] surprise move by General Motors, Toyota and other auto giants to back President Trump in his fight with California over pollution rules came after days of White House pressure to support one of the administration’s biggest efforts to weaken climate regulations. Previously, many automakers had indicated to California that they would not take a stand, according to Mary D. Nichols, chairwoman of California’s clean air regulator, the Air Resources Board. Late last week, their stance quickly changed. Andrew Olmem, a top policy aide to Mr. Trump, began calling car companies to push them to sign on to the administration’s effort in the courts to eliminate California’s right to set its own auto emissions rules on planet warming pollution, a power granted under the Clean Air Act of 1970. He was joined on the phone in some cases by Justice Department officials, according to a person familiar with the matter. The auto industry was already divided. In July four other major companies — Ford, Honda, Volkswagen and BMW — publicly sided with California.”

CALIFORNIA/CONGRESS/ELECTION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign adviser who pleaded guilty two years ago to lying to the F.B.I. about his Russian contacts during the 2016 presidential election, has filed paperwork signaling that he will run for Congress in California as a Republican to replace Representative Katie Hill. Mr. Papadopoulos, 32, filed his statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday [10-29-19], listing a home address in Los Angeles and specifying that he would run to represent California’s 25th District, which includes Lancaster, Palmdale and other large swaths of the Antelope Valley and northern Los Angeles County…Mr. Papadopoulos filed his papers just two days after Ms. Hill, a freshman Democrat, said she would resign in the face of a House ethics investigation into allegations that she had a sexual relationship with a member of her congressional staff.”

AUTO INDUSTRY/CALIFORNIA/CLIMATE CHANGE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Breaking with some of their biggest rivals, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler and Toyota said Monday they were intervening on the side of the Trump administration in an escalating battle with California over fuel economy standards for automobiles. Their decision pits them against leading competitors, including Honda and Ford, who this year reached a deal to follow California’s stricter rules. It represents the latest twist in one of the Trump administration’s most consequential rollbacks of regulations designed to fight climate change. It has also opened a rift among the world’s biggest automakers — the very industrial giants that the Trump administration maintains it was trying to help with regulatory relief. The Trump administration has proposed a major weakening of federal auto emissions standards set during the Obama administration, prompting California to declare that it will go its own course and keep enforcing the earlier, stricter standards.”

CALIFORNIA/EPA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “When the Environmental Protection Agency administrator, Andrew Wheeler, accused California of allowing ‘piles of human feces’ on city streets to contaminate sewer systems, leaders of the agency’s West Coast region hastily convened an all-hands meeting of the San Francisco staff. At that meeting, E.P.A. officials informed staff members that Mr. Wheeler’s torrent of allegations about the state’s water pollution were exaggerated, according to five current and former E.P.A. officials briefed on internal discussions. Moreover, the accusations, contained in a Sept. 26 oversight letter, had been developed without the knowledge of the California-based staff, which would normally issue such notices. Instead, it was put together by a small group of political appointees in Washington assigned specifically to target California, according to three current E.P.A. officials. Senior leaders of the agency defended the process, pointing to legitimate issues with California’s air quality and water systems.”

CALIFORNIA/CAMPAIGN FINANCE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump’s resurgent obsession with California and its policy machinations boils down to money — specifically, raising as much cash as possible from the state’s under-the-radar Republican base. The president keeps talking up California’s problems like environmental regulations and homelessness to show the West Coast’s well-heeled donors that he is engaged on problems that affect their businesses and families, according to two sources familiar with the Trump reelection campaign. Trump aides are realistic enough to know they cannot flip the state red in 2020, but they still want dollars flowing from California conservatives during the election that they can redirect toward efforts in states like Wisconsin, Michigan or Pennsylvania. Trump narrowly won these states in 2016 — and they will be crucial for his path to winning a second term…Trump is more than happy to listen to their concerns at roundtables and private dinners and lunches.”

ATTORNEY GENERAL/AUTO INDUSTRY/CALIFORNIA/DEMS/JUSTICE DEPARTMENT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Two U.S. Democratic lawmakers on Thursday [9-19-19] asked the White House to turn over documents that would show if President Donald Trump interfered or directed a Justice Department antitrust probe of four automakers that struck voluntary agreements with California to reduce tailpipe emissions, according to a letter seen by Reuters. Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, and Representative David Cicilline, head of the antitrust subcommittee, asked White House counsel Patrick Cipollone and Makan Delrahim, assistant attorney General for the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division, to turn over any documents or communications between Trump, White House staff or Justice Department officials related to the probe into Ford Motor Co (F.N), Honda Motor Co (7267.T), BMW AG (BMWG.DE) and Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE) by Oct. 2.”

AUTO INDUSTRY/CALIFORNIA/EPA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump’s administration said on Thursday [9-19-19] it is revoking California’s authority to set its own auto tailpipe emissions standards and require some zero-emission vehicles, a move certain to spark a legal battle between federal officials and the most populous state over the future of U.S. vehicles. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Andrew Wheeler said the decision will ensure nationwide rules that provide “much-needed regulatory certainty for the automotive industry.” Currently, California’s more stringent vehicle emissions rules are followed by a dozen other states that account for more than 40% of U.S. vehicle sales. California, for decades given the authority by the federal government under presidents of both parties to establish its own emissions standards, responded with defiance.”

CALIFORNIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “When President Trump attended a fund-raiser at a private home in Beverly Hills on Tuesday [9-17-19] night, there was a familiar face in the crowd: Thomas J. Barrack Jr., the billionaire investor and an old friend of the president’s who has come under scrutiny by federal prosecutors looking into possible foreign influence over Mr. Trump’s 2016 campaign. Mr. Barrack was among Mr. Trump’s relatives, party and campaign officials and the well-heeled attending the event at the home of Geoffrey Palmer, a real estate developer, according to two people familiar with what took place. Mr. Barrack spoke during the round-table portion of the event, and the president acknowledged him pleasantly, one of the people said. Mr. Barrack also attended a fund-raising breakfast for Mr. Trump on Wednesday morning in Los Angeles. And he has given $360,600, the maximum amount allowable, to the Trump Victory Committee, a joint entity between the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee, according to three people familiar with the donor list.”
