FBI raids Solyndra! Solargate or Coverup?

Russ Steele

I have written about the loss of “Green Jobs” when Solyndra shut down and laid off over a thousand people in California. Now, it seems that some people are very interested in Obama’s relationship with Solyndra, especially after the company has come under some additonal scrutiny since the bankruptcy was announced rather abruptly last week. Why?

The Daily Caller is reporting that between March 12, 2009, and April 14, 2011, “Solyndra officials and investors made no fewer than 20 trips to the West Wing.”

I wonder what the FBI might find in those files that could incriminate the White House and throw a monkey wrench into the election?  According to utahprez at the Polipundit this was just the first round of a cover up, to prevent any public viewing of the company files before the election.

Does anyone really think that Holder signed off on this as a legit raid?

 This is to lock the records down until after the election. Now the DOJ controls the pace of any investigation, the bankruptcy proceedings can’t proceed and there won’t be any fuel for the eventual civil suits.

This was not a clean raid in the interest of justice, it was the first step in the cover-up.

 I would be interest in your views. Was the FBI action just an effort to cover up this highly visible bankruptcy until after the election is over?  Do we need some Solargate action, a release of internal e-mail by an insider who has been keeping track of any internal fraud on a hard drive some where.

  1. There is no way the 500 million got spent legitimately in two years. These people stole it. They have to be put in the clink after the audit is done.
