We all know what happened with Solyndra. Right before the Bankruptcy, Solyndra Executives received Bonuses. Was there any Laws broken? What did Obama know and when did he know it? Where did all that money go? We want ALL the FACTS. Problem is, like always, Obama and Crew care not for the Law. They refuse to cooperate with the Investigation.
According to Fox News - Solyndra Execs Reaped Bonuses Before Bankruptcy, Documents Show Published November 04, 2011
Solyndra executives were awarded quarterly bonuses worth up to $60,000 apiece earlier this year as the California solar-panel company headed for bankruptcy, court documents show.Yeah, because what they gave them was junk. Throwaway stuff. Stuff that they didn't care if anyone knew. Then they were asked for more, specific and possibly incriminating stuff, the White House said "No thanks." So they had no choice:
Documents filed by the company in U.S. bankruptcy court in Delaware show the well-paid executives at the firm were given bonuses in April and in July, just months before the company filed for bankruptcy in September and laid off 1,100 workers.
The details add to the narrative of what was happening behind the scenes in the year leading up to the company's financial collapse, though congressional Republicans investigating the matter are looking for more details. After the Obama administration turned over 20,000 pages of documents earlier this week pertaining to Solyndra, House Republicans on Thursday night served the White House and vice president's office with a subpoena for more Solyndra documents.
"Unfortunately, we had to take this step after the White House has continued to slow walk the production of documents necessary for this investigation by only releasing selected documents and records," said Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., chairman of the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee investigating Solyndra.Like I said, throwaway stuff. Nothing to answer the questions being asked. But get this arrogance.
The White House denies slow-walking anything, noting that it just submitted thousands of Solyndra documents earlier this week. "We'd like to see as much passion in House Republicans for creating jobs as we see in this investigation," White House spokesman Eric Schultz said Thursday.You see folks, it really is this simple. They do not care about the Rule of Law. They do not care about answering to ANYONE. They feel they are far superior to ANY and EVERYONE! They do not have to answer for their actions. Just who in the Hell do the Republicans in the House think they are? They do not answer to them, Courts, or the American People. It's time everyone knows their roles and just sit down and shut up and let Obama do whatever he wants. Get it. Now Pass his Tax,,,uh,, Jobs Bill! Here is the Letter that the White House sent to the House in response to the Subpoena. Basically says the same thing. Hey, we gave you stuff. What you are asking for is too broad. We do not want to give you EVERYTHING we have. Just what we want to give you. So NO."
Here is Committee chairman Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich, who responded to Obama and Crews Letter He said this.
“We have been reasonable every step of the way in this investigation, and it is a shame that the Obama Administration and House Democrats continue to put up partisan roadblocks to hide the truth from taxpayers. Solyndra was a jobs program gone bad, and we must learn the lessons of Solyndra as we work to turn our economy around and put folks back to work. Our judicious and methodical work over the last eight months has garnered tens of thousands of pages of documents from DOE and OMB that have proven we are on the right track.Exactly. What are they trying to hind. How about Solyndra was never a REAL Company? All they were, was a money laundering Scheme. A prop. A show. A way to return a lot of the money right back into the Democrat Party. That's why they do not want to turn over the requested Information. They were in on it. They were fully aware that they would fail. Yet, they still throw a HALF BILLION Dollars away on them. As we have discussed, there are many more Solyndras out there. I have some advice for you Representative Upton, as for them cooperating? Don't hold your breath.
Now, we need to know the White House’s role in the Solyndra debacle in order to learn the full truth about why taxpayers now find themselves a half billion dollars in the hole. The White House could have avoided the need for subpoena authorizations if they had simply chosen to cooperate. That would have been the route we preferred, and frankly, it would have been better for the White House to get the information out now, rather than continue to drag this out.
Our request for documents is reasonable - we are not demanding the President’s blackberry messages as we are respectful of Executive Privilege. What is the West Wing trying to hide? We owe it to American taxpayers to find out.”
