The law firms representing two prominent Solyndra executives are major Democratic Party donors, The Daily Caller has learned.
Reuters first reported that the bankrupt companys CEO, Brian Harrison, and CFO, W.G. Stover, plan to refuse to talk openly to congressional investigators about how their company squandered $535 million in taxpayer money. They will invoke their Fifth Amendment right not to self-incriminate themselves at a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing on Friday.
The law firms representing the executives are Orrick, Harrington and Sutcliffe, and Keker and Van Nest. Both are major contributors to Democrats and both have handsomely helped President Barack Obamas political efforts, according to information retrieved from Center for Responsive Politics databanks.
Employees at Orrick, Harrington and Sutcliffe, which is representing Harrison, have donated more than $1.3 million to federal campaigns, political parties and Political Action Committees since 1990. More than 95 percent of those donations went to Democrats, including $184,000 to Obama.
Steven Newmark, a litigation managing associate for the firm, has bundled between $50,000 and $100,000 for Obamas ongoing bid for re-election.

Of course they are. This whole thing for green energy never really existed, it was all just a smokescreen for Oblammo to launder cash to his buddies. A real president like George Bush would never have put up with this crap!
What did BHO know and when did he know it?
Why would he approve it...to show he was doing something about the border...without hurting the Hispanic vote.
Once again, I see the opening scenes from next year’s GOP TV ads...
It’s hard to win when the referees are paid by the other team.
Thieves are like sewer slime, piling up and sticking together.
Umm arent all lawyers major dem donors?
I thought ALL law firms were major Democrat donors?
Incest in the White House.
The Wiener Firm has been obama’s favorite.
I would recomend Issa get Harrison and Stover in a room and tell them that only one of them will get immunity from prosecuition. Then put them in separate rooms and tell them the first to come up with the best story wins.
Law firms representing [client's name here] are major Democratic donors.
Aren’t nearly ALL law firms big Democrat donors?
Oh yes they did. And they didn't have to imagine it. They knew well the corruption at high levels of the clergy and monarchy. That's why the created the Constitution in the first place.
Yes but we have a duty to point out the connections to Obama and make sure people know exactly whats going on.
Obama’s bundlers are representing Obama’s loan sharks who have taken $545M from the taxpayer in a green job scam.
I disagree. What they imagined was us stopping the permeation of corruption long before it got this far. Instead, we’ve tolerated tyranny to the point it has become uncomfortable.
Solyndra CEO touted company success in letter to House committee sent 6 weeks before bankruptcy news
In an earlier email sent to the committee on July 13, Harrison claimed Solyndra was “currently on track to meet the job creation commitments agreed upon with the (Department of Energy)” and touted the company as “an example of a U.S. company using American innovation and ingenuity to compete in the global solar market...”
Just over six weeks later, the company announced its intention to file for bankruptcy protection.
