Solargate Meets Enron: Solyndra CEO And CFO To Plead The Fifth

Tyler Durden's picture


And now the political rags will really tear the American Jobs Act, ARRA and the administration, apart, because the Venn diagrams of Enron and Watergate just crossed and the point of intersection is called Solyndra. According to Reuters: "Solyndra LLC's chief executive and chief financial officer will invoke their Fifth Amendment rights and decline to answer any questions put to them at a Congressional hearing on Friday, according to letters from their attorneys obtained by Reuters." But, but, what do they have to hide? And how many times in the past has pleading the fifth not led to a prison sentence for someone? And, implicitly, and potentially, the commencement of impeachment hearings?

From Reuters:

In the letters sent to the House Energy and Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, attorneys for Solyndra CEO Brian Harrison and CFO W. G. Stover said they advised their clients not to provide testimony during the hearings.


The bankrupt company's $535 million federal loan guarantee is being investigated by the House Energy and Commerce Committee.


Harrison is represented by Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe and Stover is represented by Keker & Van Nest.


Solyndra's offices were raided by the FBI two days after the company filed for bankruptcy, although the FBI did not say what prompted the raid.

You CANNOT be impeached for pleading the 5th, nor can you be convicted of anything as a result.

But people can be convicted of whatever it was that they took the 5th to avoid testifying about. And by taking the 5th you are basically admitting that you may have been involved in some sort of criminal behavior.

Makin' it simple for ya'll: Solyndra was a laundry, not primarily a solar cell co. Obama '08 contributors and bundlers "invested" in this racket, and got back large multiples from their real investment, Obama, by way of the $.5 billion Zero sent to the laundry. Now we can sit back and watch the the Stupid Party fumble the ball again, like they did with the debt ceiling, Fast and Furious, and all else. I hear Boner's getting primary'd. That's nice.

The fifth amendment states "...nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself..."

I thought it was just a hearing?   By that logic, anything they say would be evidence of criminal activity, therefore, they can't talk at all.

That doesn't work, either.  As long as there is a chance of future prosecution, the Fifth applies in a civl action, too.  Example: OJ.  Once he had been found not guilty in the criminal matter he could no longer take the firth in the subsequent civil case.

Their appearance and statements are compelled-->they must show and respond.  Taking the Fifth is acceptable.  Of course, it rather focuses the investigations and prosecutors on areas to dig.

I've been halfway wondering if Solyndra isn't getting the coverage it has because it lets the press avoid talking about gunwalker/fast and furious. It doesn't take that much more digging to connect the executive branch deeply to gunwalker, and once that happens you have the White House implicitly connected to the murder of law enforcement officers. I'd think they'd happily take being called corrupt over being proven murderers.

According to Wikipedia, some plants that get called milk-vetch include locoweed, which might be what you're thinking.  True milk vetch is something different, and many types appear to be useful medicinally.  I didn't know that.  if you're interested.


So far as I'm concerned, the Mojave is a big place.  A bunch of heavily subsidized solar panels added to the heavily subsidized wind farms won't change a lot but it's been interesting to watch the land and species purists battle it out with the renewable energy types.

Fifth is the right play. Even if you are innocent, any smart defense lawyer is going to tell you, do not talk to the police or to the government. Do not give a statement under oath.

Think the government cares if you are innocent? Bullshit. All they care about is getting you to talk, talk, talk. Then if they think you were untruthful about anything at all -- even something having nothing to do with the investigation -- they'll threaten to prosecute you under 1001, False Statements Act. Threaten you with prosecution and jail unless you now "cooperate."

This shit happens every single day. Ask Martha Stewart. Most sheeple think Stewart was convicted of insider trading. Bzzzt. It was 1001, misstatements to investigators and obstructing justice. So it wasn't the underlying crime, it was what she told investigators that got her nailed -- and Stewart gave a statement under oath with her lawyer present. Still got tagged.

If they ever drag me in for questioning on anything, I don't give a fuck what the public, media, or blogs think. I'm not talking, period.

This is going to be more fun than Watergate, and that was a LOT of fun. The only difference is that everybody knew that Nixon was an evil asshole from way back, whereas Obama had an awful lot of people fooled, for a while. I actually wanted to believe - and that allowed me to be fooled, once. I'm old enough to have known better, and should have known better, but Jesus Christ, the alternative was a senile old hack and a gloss-lipped puta.

Have you even read any of the information now avaiable concerning Solyndra? If you had you would not be reacting in a knee jerk fashion. The DOE was pressured by the WH to bypass their own rules on when to spend tax payer dollars on this type of plant. More importantly the taxpayer dollars were not protected. These kind of investments do fail. There is risk. The tax payers investment should never be last in line when bankruptucy occurs.

As a result of Barrack OBama's direct involvement his contributers will see get money out of Solyndra before the tax payer. Barrack Obama has stolen from women and children so as to funnel tax payer money to his buddies.

1/2 of billion dollars.... whoops it gone.... chicago style... you can take the scum out of the chicago machine but you can never take the Frank Marshal Davis out of B. Hussein Obama whose your daddy barracky?

What other fairy tales do you believe?

You might be the only one on the planet who thinks there is no there there.

The Bamster is corrupt, nothing was said about McCain being any better, and Solydra was yet another way to take your money and then have you happily give away blow jobs to the thieves, you twit.

As far as Obama goes... You CANNOT IMPEACH a USURPER!!!!  A usurper must be removed and he would be striken from the office as if that plant to further run this country into the ground did not exist.  All that userper signed would be negated.  If they won't stop robosigning, do you honestly think the right thing will be done here too?  Our constitution is to protect us from our government and it needs to be followed.  This just pisses me off!!!

I'm with you......  Our constitution is under attack.  The latest jobs bill has the following......

Buried deep, deep on page 133 of the bill, it states:

SEC. 376. FEDERAL AND STATE IMMUNITY.  (a) Abrogation of State Immunity- A State shall not be immune under the 11th Amendment to the Constitution from a suit brought in a Federal court of competent jurisdiction for a violation of this Act.

States protection under 11 Amendment reads.....


The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State.

OMG  -- Obama Must Go!

Ahhh, the false equivalency of it all. Didn't know Enron received Gov money? I guess we need to go back a few years (like hundreds) to understand the logic. I suggest the following mental excersize: Enron was based in Texas, Bush was based in Texas, therefore Bush is a witch. Burn him.  Watch'a think?
