House Republicans accused the White House on Thursday of stonewalling a congressional probe into the failed $535 million loan guarantee to bankrupt solar panel maker Solyndra LLC and threatened to issue subpoenas later this month to secure interviews with “key administration staff.”


Republicans have raised questions about whether the administration favored Solyndra in awarding the loan, as well as in a later restructuring deal, because of political ties to Mr. Kaiser.


“Whether the Solyndra mess is the result of crony capitalism or gross incompetence, American taxpayers deserve answers as well as the peace of mind that Congress will ensure it never happens again,” Mr. Upton said in his statement.
