GOP Considering Contempt Charges Against White House Over Solyndra Subpoena

Department of Energy Secretary Chu's testimony in front of the House Energy and Commerce Committee last November left much to be desired, and subsequent investigations have produced little in the way of concrete answers as to precisely who is responsible for the loss of half-a-billion taxpayer dollars through the auspices of the now-bankrupt solar-panel maker Solyndra. While Democrats like Rep. Henry Waxman see the continued inquest into the Solyndra debacle as "dancing on Solyndra's grave" to manufacture a White House scandal, I see it as Republicans fulfilling their congressional duty to figure out why and by whom public money was carelessly distributed for political gain, in order to prevent such government-funded failures from happening again.

Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.), who is heading the GOP probe of the failed solar company Solyndra, said Republicans are meeting this week to discuss contempt charges against the White House over its response to last year’s subpoena for documents.

“We are meeting this week to look at a very serious charge, which would be contempt of Congress, because they are slow walking,” Stearns said on the Fox Business Network Monday, according to a transcript. Stearns heads the investigations panel of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

Republicans allege the White House has not provided enough internal documents to satisfy the GOP probe of Solyndra, the California solar panel manufacturer that received a $535 million Energy Department loan guarantee in 2009 and went bankrupt last year.
