Above the Law! Barack Obama Flat out Refuses Court Subpoena for Solyndra Documents

Barack Obama Solyndra Scandal Above the Law! Barack Obama Flat out Refuses Court Subpoena for Solyndra Documents

Once again Barack Obama has decided to ignore a court order, which proves he thinks his administration is above the law. This is more proof Obama thinks he is more like a dictator then a President. Which makes you wonder what he and all his Democrats were talking about when Bush was in office and they constantly requested and received documents for manufactured outrage, pushed by their liberal media pals.

(Washington Examiner) President Obama and his West Wing aides ignored a subpoena of documents pertaining to the Solyndra loan guarantee even after congressional investigators met with White House officials to negotiate the scope of the subpoena, according to the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

“The White House’s failure to comply with today’s document deadline is a sad milestone on the path chosen by this administration to obstruct and delay our investigation rather than cooperate and help deliver answers for taxpayers,” committee chairman Fred Upton, R-Mich., and Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee chairman Cliff Stearns R-Fla., said in a statement this evening.

EPIC FAIL! Obama was Warned about Solyndra Laying off Workers

solyndra obama EPIC FAIL! Obama was Warned about Solyndra Laying off Workers

So Obama knew about the upcoming layoffs, yet he still gave hundreds of millions of dollars? and this is the guy saying he needs more power to ‘streamline investments’? Seriously?

(Bloomberg) The Obama administration knew before the 2010 election that Solyndra LLC, a solar-panel maker that received a $535 million U.S. loan guarantee, planned to fire workers, according to e-mails released today.

The messages don’t indicate that anyone from the White House directed Solyndra to delay announcing the layoffs until after the vote. Previously released e-mails, indicating the Energy Department urged Solyndra to postpone the cuts, have been cited by House Republicans who say politics influenced Solyndra’s award and last-ditch rescue bid that put taxpayers behind $75 million in private investment.

“Here’s the deal — Solyndra is going to announce they are laying off 200 of their 1200 workers,”Heather Zichal, a White House adviser, wrote to Carol Browner, then director of the office of Energy and Climate Change Policy, and other officials on Oct. 27, 2010. “No es bueno.”

The White House released the e-mails to the Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s investigations panel, which has been investigating Solyndra’s loan guarantee since February.

Kathryn Ruemmler, counsel to President Barack Obama, said in a letter to Representatives Fred Upton, a Michigan Republican and chairman of the energy committee, and Cliff Stearns, a Florida Republican who heads the investigations panel, that congressional investigators have now received more than 186,000 pages of documents from the administration and 72,000 pages from Solyndra investors.
