White House Lashes Out at Congress Over 'Partisan' Solyndra Investigation
CNS News ^ | 11/11/11 | Fred Lucas

Posted on 11/11/2011 3:18:30 PM PST by Nachum

(CNSNews.com) – A day after newly released e-mails surfaced regarding an Obama donor’s role in asking for a second Solyndra loan, the White House agreed to provide subpoenaed material to the House Energy and Commerce Committee -- but not without a jab.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney called the House probe into the $535-million federal loan to the solar panel firm "partisan." Solyndra is now bankrupt and under FBI investigation.

“We have been enormously cooperative with legitimate oversight. In this investigation alone we’ve turned over 85,000 pages of documents,” Carney told reporters Thursday. “We will continue to cooperate with this committee in their investigation. With regards to the subpoena, I don’t have anything to announce. But, I can say, as the White House counsel made clear in her letter, the subpoena was over-broad, unnecessary and in my words, if something seems partisan, it probably is.”

Somebody needs to tell Carney and his master that it’s our money they have essentially “laundered”.

Checks and balances are a great thing.

It’s only one party that see’s an issue with theft in the Solyndra loans.

Well, when no Rat gives a care about America getting scammed by Solyndra, it seems pretty cheeky to complain that only Republicans care.

Does anyone think they are trying to hide the crime under a mountain of paper?

Haiku Guy's Principle of Government Boondoggles:

Any government program that has broad public support based on strong emotional appeal will become a wasteful boondoggle as sharp operators move in to exploit the public willingness to throw money at the program. The more powerful the appeal, the bigger the boondoggle.

For $535 million, that's only $6300 per page.

I'll take "partisan" over "crooked and slimey" any day.

This is only the first shoe to drop . Here in Ca. there is another solar wet dream about to come to an end . It would appear that the CEO of this on is the some of a Ca congressman. There is the Russian company that got millions and the overseas auto manufacturer that got a bailout. It is unending and will all surface.

What is ‘partisan’ about demanding that good stewardship of funds and business management be the order of the day? The operation of Solyndra was, in retrospect, very close to a criminal enterprise.

Aided and abetted with the full support and knowledge of the Department of Energy and the White House.

“Partisan”?

That doesn’t make you innocent of the charges!

Just because your Dem buddies are complicit in your fraud, doesn’t mean we’re obliged to let your crime go unchallenged.
