E-mails Show White House Involvement in Solyndra

“The documents we have obtained thus far demonstrate that such high-level White House advisers as Valerie Jarrett?, Ron Klain?, Rahm Emanuel? and Larry Summers? were involved in discussions and decisions related to Solyndra,”

Billionaire George Kaiser, a key fund-raiser for President Obama, visited with White House officials about now-bankrupt Solyndra, and suggested the solar panel company “was one of their prime poster children” for renewable energy.

Kaiser acted as a bundler for the Obama campaign, raising $50,000 to $100,000.

The documents appear to dispute repeated claims by the White House that the solar panel company or the government loan was ever discussed with Kaiser.

“They about had an orgasm in Biden’s office when we mentioned Solyndra,” said one e-mail from Ken Levit, executive director of Kaiser’s foundation.

“That’s awesome!” said the response from Steve Mitchell, an official with Kaiser’s venture capital firm Argonaut.  “Get us a DOE [Energy Department?] loan.”

“They’re making the mistake that every White House makes—slow down the development of the documents, decide they’re not going to comply, redact the documents to no end,” Boehner said.
