And we have new email showing that the Energy Department requested the now bankrupt Solyndra solar company.
To delay the layoffs until after the 2010 mid term elections.
Now that bombshell reveal just as energy secretary Steven you.
Is set to testify before congress and won them.
Asking the questions Pennsylvania congressman Tim Murphy member of that committee -- energy and commerce or good morning you.
Good -- this was first reported in the Washington Post wouldn't make it.
Well it's just one of a series.
Deep concerns we have a win -- Jonathan silver came before committee a few months ago he said he would not.
Discuss this with secretary -- now we find out that they did.
They said mr.
Kaiser had not been involved in discussions with the White House now we find out he did on many levels.
That the White House we were told didn't have information with regard to political donors now we know the they had information on the donors as it was linked to.
Of people invest in the company.
It's one of a series of many concerns we have in terms of information that doesn't seem to -- With what we were told -- what reality is and also pointing more and more to some direct involvement with the sectors of energy.
And other people within that department of using these loans in a way that was more political.
-- so it was either political or was reckless or was -- Either way the taxpayers Rodham a lot of money and we still need to find out what happened here is one of the emails this is from organized equity.
Apparently we're the largest investors.
Insulin -- Day DOE to part of education did have energy excuse me.
Did push very hard for us to hold our announcement of the consolidation to employees and vendors to November 3 oddly they did not give a reason for that date.
The election was November 2 that year the layoffs are actually announced the next day.
On November 3 and put two and two together.
Well and that's a question we have to ask the secretary -- for its pretty clear.
That was not a random dates November 3 the day after election and I'm sure they -- one other fallout.
It was gonna affect elections.
And you see also when people were telling the White House this -- -- ready for prime time we should be going out there hold off on this week we get these.
Loans taking care when we find -- who's gonna make it and -- was pushed back anyways that the White House and the vice president.
One of these things I've done pushes through -- -- to -- appears to comply all of questions that we need the interest to and we hope that that's something.
That secretary Chu gives us tomorrow on your oh so you're going to be -- those questions about how much you truly think this is going to be -- Well how much how far will he go and giving you which looked.
We don't know yet because in some of the emails and some of their information we've received from Department of Energy there's still some significant gaps.
We -- also seeing memos that have have the address label changed on them.
In terms of advising secretary Q and others about issues all those -- questions we have to have the answer to look there's so many inconsistencies.
And it's a fairly bright man.
Any certainly understands the value of understanding all sides of an issue -- -- scientist and certainly if there's lots people telling him don't go through with this.
We need to know why this happened anyways why the -- -- so much money winds ensor viewers know one of the critical questions and all of us.
Is how the language of the of the loan could be restructure.
And ordered to repay the investors who put up by that was -- a minimum ninety million dollars or her sixty million dollars it was tens of millions of dollars.
How they would get paid back first.
Before the taxpayer.
And it appears that a discussion took place.
Those investors that their debts restructured loan level was that conversation.
We're trying to find out certainly it was the legal advisors at the highest levels who would not testify at that west wing or is that outside the White House.
Within the Department of Energy but but -- so you go back to what the president people promise they couldn't get politics mixed up with -- and here's a heads I Tim Murphy will follow tomorrow and see what we get out of it.
Thank you -- for your time.
