From the National Journal:
Without any Democratic support, House Republicans on Thursday voted to subpoena the Obama administration over all West Wing communications related to the federally-backed, now-bankrupt solar-energy company Solyndra dating back to President Obama’s inauguration in January 2009.
White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler wrote the Republicans a letter last month saying the request was unrealistic and “implicates longstanding and significant institutional Executive Branch confidentiality interests.”
Will the White House refuse to comply with the subpoena? Seems tricky politically, but they obviously don’t want to hand over this information.
