Energy Secretary Chu agrees to testify in Congress about Solyndra
The Daily Caller ^ | 10/27/11 | Matthew Boyle

President Barack Obama’s Energy Secretary Steven Chu has agreed to testify about failed solar company Solyndra before congressional investigators on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The hearing, according to committee staff, will be on November 17.

Solyndra received a $535 million loan guarantee from the Department of Energy — and taxpayers are burdened with that cost since the solar panel manufacturer went bankrupt.

“We appreciate Secretary Chu making himself available and look forward to hearing his testimony on DOE’s involvement with the half-billion dollar loan to Solyndra,” Energy and Commerce’s Oversight and Investigations subcommittee chairman Rep. Cliff Stearns said in a statement. “We hope he will finally provide answers about why DOE consciously ignored the direct warnings from their own experts that Solyndra was doomed to fail, and granted the loan to Solyndra.”

It is easy to be confident when you have the entire propaganda machine of the DemocRATs behind you.

I did not know that one had the ability to decline to "testify" in front of a legislative body until I was once asked to do the same and declined.

I was told that one cannot refuse the subpoena, but you don't necessarily have to show up.

3 branches - executive, legislative, judicial.

The legislative branch subpoenas you, you can tell them to pound sand.

Bingo!

I can hear it now: ‘I don’t know’...’Not that I was aware’...’I will get back to you in writing’.
