Anti-trust probe of companies that agreed to cut emissions dropped by DOJ

The Department of Justice announced that it is dropping its investigation into major automakers that sided with the state of California on emission standards, over the Trump administration. The probe focused on BMW, Ford, Volkswagen and Honda, and was announced in September.

Oh, this is dropping the anti-trust probe that was started because the car makers were going along with California's increased regulatory burden, something that disproportionately affects smaller companies. Why did they drop the anti-trust probe? Is it a state jurisdiction issue?

Anti trust in modern times has just been a tool to punish companies who don’t pay their pittance to lobby. Look at Microsoft and their anti trust thing a while back
