Sheldon Whitehouse, Chairman of the Budget Committee, and Ron Wyden, Chairman of the Finance Committee, They sent letters to the directors of nine oil companies, including Chevron and ExxonMobil, requesting details about the meeting they had with Trump in April.

According to press reports, Trump would have promised oil company executives that, if they donated a billion dollars to his campaign, would eliminate numerous environmental regulations implemented by the Joe Biden administration, It would accelerate the approval of licenses and exploitation permits, and offer tax benefits to the industry.

In a statement, the senators said that both Trump and the US oil and gas industry have repeatedly shown their willingness to prioritize their economic interests over the well-being of the public.

The letters sent to the companies request documents related to the proposals discussed during the meeting at Mar-a-Lago, as well as drafts of executive orders or regulations that could be implemented by a possible Trump administration.

This request follows a complaint published in Politico, which alleges that the Leaders of Big Oil are already preparing proposals for executive orders beneficial to their industrywith the expectation that Trump will sign them if he reaches the White House.

The announcement of the investigation comes shortly after Trump meet again with oil industry leaders in Houstonwhere he promised to approve new oil exploitation projects “immediately” if he is elected in November, according to The Washington Post.
