Democrats Attempt to Limit Solyndra Investigation

As per usual, desperately trying to protect their corrupt, fellow Democrats – from the New York Times:

Democrats would back a GOP subpoena to compel testimony from executives at government-backed solar firm Solyndra who plan to invoke their Fifth Amendment rights at a hotly anticipated oversight hearing tomorrow, according to the party’s senior member on the House Energy and Commerce Committee…

Sounds good, right?  First paragraph of the MSM story…good, old Democrats are willing to join the GOP in going after the Solyndra execs.  Just great!  Except for one thing – the Solyndra execs represent only one half of the corruption…the other half is Obama Administration officials.  So, how do the Democrats view that?  Some paragraphs down in the story, we’re told:

…Waxman drew a bright line between a potential subpoena of the company and a July edict that Republicans issued to the Office of Management and Budget for emails related to its review of the Solyndra loan guarantee — a party-line subpoena that the Californian then lambasted as “an abuse” and “a fishing expedition”…

So, it is “abuse” to ask Administration Officials about how Administration officials decided to procure a loan benefiting a donor to the President’s political campaigns.  Yeah, right.  What this really amounts to is a Democrat attempt to limit the investigation…ok to hang the Solyndra execs out to dry, but don’t dare go after the Administration.  And if you do, its an abuse…some sick bit of Teabagger, bitter-clinger political nastiness when we’re all supposed to be engaging in a new tone.  How dare you!

We must not let Democrats have any say in the House investigation.  We have learned that allowing Democrats to participate in any investigation only results in Democrats covering up for other Democrats.  Democrats have proven they are not interested in the truth…only interested in limiting the amount of damage to themselves and, if possible, shoving the blame for their own failures on to the GOP.  This investigation is vital and it must find the truth…and so the only Democrat input should be under oath, on camera, and in front of the investigating committee.

    the soly exec’s took the 5th…meaning…they have done something that could put them in prison…

    like obieOne said…”The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide.”
