Solyndra Execs Take Fifth

Congressional hearing on Capitol Hill

The chief executive and chief financial officer of Solyndra invoked their Fifth Amendment rights and decline to answer any questions at a congressional hearing on Friday.

Wild Thing's comment........

Pleading the fifth in front of congress is a public admission of guilt no matter how its spun. And that was our money they consumed.

They are either protecting Obama or have been threatened by Obama if they talk.

You just don't spend 500 million dollars. I want to know where most of that money ended up. I'd like to know if it's in the coffers of the DNC and Obama campaign.

Democrat politicians don't allocate public monies to companies without expecting a kickback to their campaign chests and/or personal bank accounts. This Solyndra deal stinks like a road killed skunk.

I am quite familiar with two of these House committee members, Joe Barton and Mike Burgess, both strong conservatives from North Texas. They will pursue this situation with diligence. That is certainly far more than we can expect from the MSM.

..take the fifth? These bozos should need a "fifth" alright and when it's over,soap-on-a-rope. I wonder if these miscreants will do any time or even return the $$$ they lavished on themselves-Hmmmm?

....and Bob and Tom have a point-did any of the $$$ get kicked up to Obama2012/DNC ?? There most certainly be an investigation of THAT possibility...

I don't want the investigation to go fast. Eric holder could then file charges and allow them to be dismissed with prejudges and under double jeopardy the criminal charges could never be filed again.
