Government lawyers against free speech

Glenn Harlan Reynolds:
Dear attorneys general, conspiring against free speech is a crime

Federal law makes it a felony “for two or more persons to agree together to injure, threaten, or intimidate a person in any state, territory or district in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him/her by the Constitution or the laws of the Unites States, (or because of his/her having exercised the same).”

I wonder if U.S. Virgin Islands Attorney General Claude Walker, or California Attorney General Kamala Harris, or New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman have read this federal statute. Because what they’re doing looks like a concerted scheme to restrict the First Amendment free speech rights of people they don’t agree with. They should look up 18 U.S.C. Sec. 241, I am sure they each have it somewhere in their offices.

That appears to be a pretty good counterclaim to the proposed litigation.  The AG's might also have to deal with the weaknesses of their own arguments in favor of global warming where projections appear to be based on flawed assumptions which overstate the perceived warming.
