Recently released emails from the White House reveal that the Obama Administration wasn’t telling the truth about Obama’s ties to Solyndra funder George Kaiser.
Kaiser is an Obama fundraiser who also made a private loan to Solyndra after a second federal loan was disapproved. Kaiser and other investors were moved to the head of the line over taxpayers in case the company went belly up.
Until the emails surfaced, the White House had maintained that it had never talked to Kaiser about Solyndra. The emails show that Kaiser had a meeting at the White House last year when Solyndra was seeking a second federal loan after it had received a $528 million loan in 2009.
The Blaze has more on the story:
The company’s implosion and revelations that administration officials rushed to complete the loan in time for a September 2009 groundbreaking have become an embarrassment for Obama and a rallying cry for GOP critics of his green energy program.
Kaiser, an Oklahoma billionaire, was a “bundler” for Obama’s 2008 campaign, raising between $50,000 and $100,000 for the president, records show. He also was a frequent White House visitor in 2009 and 2010. White House officials for months have denied that Kaiser talked about Solyndra during those visits. One the nation’s richest men, Kaiser owns an oil company and other energy interests and is chief donor to the George Kaiser Family Foundation, which invests in early childhood education and community health.
Naturally, the Obama Administration is attacking members of the Republican committee that is investigating this latest scandal and apparent cover-up by Obama operatives over the Solyndra debacle.
Rep. Cliff Stearns said the latest emails show that “Kaiser and his employees enjoyed ready access to the West Wing of the White House and exercised influence throughout the loan process.”
