Now for more on this we turn to congresswoman Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee who is on the house energy committee.
Congresswoman how do you feel tonight you're being ignored by the White House your request we're getting nothing yet what do you say.
I think that what you're going to see us continue to do is to make this request and yesterday chairman Stearns in chairman -- sent a letter back coverage of the White House to -- Like the documents that we have seen so far indicate that possibly.
You had Valerie Jarrett and Ron Kline and -- Emanuel and Larry Summers in some way involved in discussions and we have the email changes that -- that.
Mister Kaiser George Kaiser was involved in some discussions and -- what we want to do is make certain we get to the bottom of this issue.
We need to know what happened with Solyndra but what happened with all of these loan programs and what the vetting process -- Well -- and it's certainly interesting the conversation that was going on in the White House about cylinder.
But from the White House's point of view they're saying hey we -- 85000.
Your request or just it's it's too much.
You're asking for too much information what do you say.
I say that unfortunately.
We started last February on this investigation we finally issued subpoenas in July because we were being stonewalled.
And we -- -- last week to issuing a subpoena on November 3 for the records from the White House because they were stone -- we have tried to talk with and we tried to work with them.
We have that we're responsible for finding out what happened not only with the -- alone but with all of these other loans in all these programs ending -- -- sits in September and called since September.
For pulling every one of these lungs so that we can find out what happened to taxpayer -- and it's not your family relations money.
It's not just a lender there are a lot of companies that are in these programs that yes there are problems.
I what year a couple of things about George price are here this is a Fella who raise money gave money to the Obama administration.
In across that's -- Syria heard and Ed Henry mentioned him.
Here is email from George Kaiser to a slender board member named Steve Mitchell -- set.
-- a couple weeks ago when Ken and I were visiting with a group of administration folks in DC or in charge of the stimulus process.
And specifically says -- White House not the Department of Energy.
And -- came up every one of them responded simultaneously.
About their thorough knowledge of the slender story.
Suggesting it was one of their prime poster children.
So we have that and that's from march 5 and twenty -- then recently this -- George Kaiser two and associate.
I talked in general about Chinese in solar but I didn't want to get too specific with him meaning President Obama I never mentioned -- it directly.
Is this a rewriting of history.
What's going on here.
Well I don't know in we have that in mount -- beginning in feb of twenty can't parade to October of twenty tan.
And our concern -- -- is is it.
What you have that as if someone who came and I invested in this company and push to restructure this line.
And it certainly Jerry as we look at -- asked.
Our concern is why it took place to wall was involved in those conversations who in the White House was involved in that.
Where individuals from the White House involved in Solyndra worried their discussions of cylinders bankruptcy worry -- decisions or awareness.
That they were going to subordinate the American people when they restructured the -- All and -- says who knew what land.
How much was the White House involved if they would just help us with the documents -- -- -- -- yeah certainly it never happens again congresswoman.
At one of our producers.
Just called the committee yet again to check and see if the committee's received any of these emails any response from the White House you still have.
It's after five now 510 we're still waiting.
And you know frankly this is becoming more and more outrageous.
By the hour because originally.
We thought this -- remain yes would be out at noon.
Well you're exactly right if they have.
Nothing to hide then they give us the documents that we need so we -- Continue our investigation.
We have worked on this since February we want to -- these programs up.
So that we can stop.
Throwing this money I mean this is ridiculous it's taxpayer money at hand I -- these loan programs yes you're right you got shut these things today announced.
And you've got to stop these programs and put an end to it we've got to figure it out and we're going to stay behind the White House.
Until they get well what we knew you could have a very Illinois congresswoman Blackburn it -- -- will keep our.
