WASHINGTON - The Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement regarding the White House's questionable actions with regard to Solyndra and Iran:
"Today's headlines reveal more ethically questionable conduct by a member of President Obama's inner circle, adding to a growing pattern of behavior," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. "Senior White House advisor David Plouffe profited handsomely by speaking to a company doing business with the radical, anti-American government of Iran. "Last week, we learned Jim Messina used his personal email account to negotiate with lobbyists while other top officials chatted up the special interests at Caribou Coffee to keep their conversations secret--blatantly violating the very transparency standards on which Obama campaigned. A separate report showed Jack Lew, Bill Daley, Valerie Jarrett and other Obama insiders all knew the Solyndra loan was headed for disaster, but they let the administration swindle the taxpayers for half a billion dollars anyway. New emails show Rahm Emanuel was 'hot on Solyndra' and pressured the administration to move forward, yet he refuses to answer questions about his involvement. "President Obama owes the American people an answer: Does he knowingly allow this kind of reckless behavior in his White House, or has he lost control of his own senior staff? Why isn't he answering questions or holding his staff accountable? When President Obama promised to change the way Washington works, this certainly isn't what voters had in mind."
