FBI raids solar panel company hailed by Obama, Company visited White House 20 times

FBI agents on Thursday executed search warrants at the headquarters of Solyndra LLC, which was awarded more than $500,000 in federal stimulus loans in 2009 to make solar panels in what the Obama administration called part of an aggressive effort to put more Americans to work and end U.S. dependence on foreign oil.

But the company filed a bankruptcy petition Tuesday in Delaware, asking a court to bar phone, electricity and water and sewer service providers from “altering, refusing or discontinuing service,” and now is the focus of an investigation by the FBI and the Energy Department’s Office of Inspector General.

Company visited White House 20 times

Not only does the now-bankrupt solar energy firm Solyndra have a cozy financial relationship with the Obama administration, company representatives also made numerous visits to the White House to meet with administration officials, The Daily Caller has learned.According to White House visitor logs, between March 12, 2009, and April 14, 2011, Solyndra officials and investors made no fewer than 20 trips to the West Wing. In the week before the administration awarded Solyndra with the first-ever alternative energy loan guarantee on March 20, four separate visits were logged.

  1. Don’t forget that the FBI is under the jurisdiction of the Justice Department – Eric Holder’s Justice Department. This “raid” is probably just an effort to locate evidence of collusion between Solyndra and the Obama regime so that the evidence can be made to disappear. Nothing will ever come of this – unless Obama’s successor has the guts to go after him and all the criminals he has installed in his administration. That is what SHOULD happen. I doubt that it will though.
