I have no doubt that Eric Holder's DOJ will attempt to disassociate Obama from his intentional role in promoting the Solyndra fraud against the American taxpayer, but I doubt very much that Holder's efforts on his boss' behalf will withstand Republican and public scrutiny, especially when legal minds of Andrew McCarthy's calibre make the case for criminality. McCarthy's article in National Review Online is a devastating indictment of everyone involved and maps the path for future investigations, beginning with his opening paragraphs:
The Solyndra debacle is not just Obama-style crony socialism as usual. It is a criminal fraud. That is the theory that would be guiding any competent prosecutor’s office in the investigation of a scheme that cost victims — in this case, American taxpayers — a fortune.
Fraud against the United States is one of the most serious felony offenses in the federal penal law. It is even more serious than another apparent Solyndra violation that has captured congressional attention: the Obama administration’s flouting of a statute designed to protect taxpayers.
These are serious charges, and this is only the beginning. Read it all at NRO.
