Did they say why?

As much as I detest these ‘green’ Obama supporting pukes- I would hope the FBI is not doing random searches on fishing expeditions

Don’t get your hopes up. The FBI is an arm of the Holder DOJ....it is more likely that they are getting control of the records so they cannot be released.

When I was in DC many years ago, I stayed at the Capitol Hotel. A DC cop was there spewing about the FBI and shredding whatever they wish.

So don't bet that this is anti-Obama

might have to do with this....

Solyndra bankruptcy fallout continues: House Republicans widen probe (WH gonna be subpoened)

U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL), a senior member of the Energy & Commerce Committee, says House Republicans are widening their probe of the Obama administration’s loan guarantee to solar manufacturer Solyndra, which plans to file for bankruptcy.

In an interview with energyNOW! correspondent Lee Patrick Sullivan, Stearns says the committee is investigating loan guarantees provided to other clean-energy companies besides Solyndra. Stearns also says the committee is demanding documents from the White House about Solyndra, and may issue a subpoena to get them.

Stearns is the chairman of the House energy panel’s Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.

It’s more likely that the FBI will be scrubbing corporate files to delete anything that could embarass Dear Leader. We’ll see no justice from the Department of Justice so long as Holder is in charge.

If that’s the case, I’m liable to agree with poster #5. They’re trying to get hold of the evidence so it can be squirreled away or destroyed.

Good point. Why else would the FBI get right in there. I think they think this thing could really blow up into a huge scandal and want to confiscate the evidence before anyone else gets to it. We’ll probably never hear anymore about it.

Well, well, well. White Shack gets Holder to secure incriminating docs before Issa subpoenas them. Pay to play indeed mustn’t be exposed. Question becomes, will O’Slacker and Holder throw Solyndra under the bus to barter/distract as deeper ties to Gunwalker are being exposed????

House Republicans widen probe (WH gonna be subpoened)

And now they can refuse that testify because it is part of an ongoing FBI investigation. That will drag on way past the election and then be dismissed because all the evidence and money went missing. Isn't that convenient.

Under normal circumstances I would agree with you (”be afraid Obama, be afraid.”). But the FBI is the law enforcement arm of the “Just Us” Dept. Obama’s boy, Eric Holder, is in charge of the “Just Us” Dept. So, sorry but I cannot fathom “Brother Holder” throwing Obama under the bus. Rather, I see this as a bu!!shit operation. They will find somebody else to pin culpability on and brush the genuine culprits under the rug. (Also, I believe Holder was intimately involved with this operation and there is no way on God’s green-earth he is going to allow himself to be held accountable.)

Time will tell if there are any gonads in all of DC to protect and defend the Constitution and the country!

So far, the Republicans in Congress are searching for their gonads with both hands and a mirror and coming up empty. Spineless, gutless eunuchs, IMO. They disgrace every patriot in Arlington and our forefathers.

Or simply counting on "part of an ongoing investigtion" to keep them from congress 'till after the election.

The bankruptcy of Solyndra is damaging to Obama. This crackdown by the FBI may be a way for Obama to distance himself from the scandal. In other words, Obama is throwing Solyndra under the bus by making it seem that he is protecting us from waste, fraud, and abuse.

This is good. What this does is teach all the Silicon Valley liberals that the politicians will pretend to be your friends only so long as you are useful to them. The minute you might be something else, they will turn on you and bite like snakes.

By making a few well-placed donations to the Obama campaign, George Kaiser and his buddies managed to get a half-billion dollars in government money injected into their little enterprise. But then things went South, making the investment an embarrassment to Obama. All of a sudden Kaiser & Co. are crooks, and the FBI is crawling over them.

Hopefully this will give similarly-situated Silicon Valley liberals pause as they too consider donating to Obama to get some of that Government OPM.
