House panel subpoenas White House for Solyndra documents

A House panel voted Thursday to subpoena the White House for documents related to the bankrupt solar energy company Solyndra, which received more than $500 million in federal loan guarantees.

Some Republicans have questioned the White House’s relationship with the company, accusing it of stonewalling congressional investigators. The Obama administration says it has been forthcoming in answering questions.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee‘s subcommittee on oversight and investigations voted 14-9 in favor of issuing the subpoenas for internal documents regarding the loan guarantees after a contentious debate among subcommittee members.
