TRUMP-PENCE-CARRIER EMAILS

INDIANAPOLIS — A judge has ordered Gov. Eric Holcomb’s office to turn over emails between then-Gov. Mike Pence, President-elect Donald Trump and Carrier Corp. about Trump’s negotiations to prevent Carrier from moving most of its operations from Indianapolis to Mexico. Monday’s Marion County court order gives Holcomb’s office 30 days to disclose any communications sent from Nov. 14-29, 2016, about meetings between Pence, Trump and Carrier. The Citizens Action Coalition sought the documents after Trump and Pence struck a deal with Carrier to keep its Indianapolis plant open for 10 years and employ 1,100 workers there.
