Obama White House Subpoenaed
The Washington Times reports that Solyndra documents have been subpoenaed due to White House stonewalling.
"By a 14-9 party-line vote the Energy and Commerce Committee’s investigative subcommittee authorized issuing a subpoena for any White House documents related to Solyndra..."
"“We simply cannot allow the executive branch at its highest levels to
pick and choose what they will produce, or whether they will produce
anything at all,” said Rep. Cliff Stearns, the Florida Republican who runs the investigative panel...Democrats said it was “unprecedented”."

Mr. Waxman is playing cute here. He was dealing with Administrations that believe in the rule of law. The Obama Administration is playing politics by dumping records on the press...even before they give the to the House attorneys. Besides, Obama is out campaigning and rarely at the WH these days.
"She ...(White House Chief Lawyer Kathryn H. Ruemmler)... said the White House has an interest in “confidentiality” of its internal communications.
You just know that this arrogant Administration is South Side Chicago corrupt and when you have a nonthreatening proxy DNC Media, you feel emboldened to cross the line. We will see Executive Privilege claims very soon.
