Did Obama Lie About Political Pressure for Solar Abound’s DOE Loans? (Video)

President Obama faced some of the hardest hitting questions from a reporter during his tenure as CoC when he sat down with KUSA’s Kyle Clark.  Besides asking questions about Benghazi, Clark asked about DOE loans and the political connections to the owners of companies that wasted taxpayer money:

“In a national address, you touted the stimulus money going to Abound Solar – a Colorado company connected to one of your billionaire fundraisers,” Clark began. “Now, as you may know, Abound Solar is out of business and under criminal investigation. The jobs are gone and taxpayers are out about 60 million dollars. How do you answer critics who see Abound Solar as Colorado’s Solyndra – a politically connected clean energy company that went under and took our money with it?”

At that point, beginning to sense the interview would take on an aggressive tone, Obama laughed nervously.

“Well, Kyle, I think that if you look at our record that these loans that are given out by the Department of Energy for clean energy have created jobs all across the country. … And these are decisions, by the way, that are made by the Department of Energy, they have nothing to do with politics.”


Facts are stubborn things:

The website Complete Colorado has obtained emails between Department of Energy loan executive Jonathan Silver and the Department of Energy’s Credit Advisor, Jim McCrea, claiming the White House was pressuring the Department of Energy to move the loan forward for Abound Solar. Even more troubling, Complete Colorado also has internal Department of Energy emails that suggest the Department of Energy’s Credit Advisor had serious reservations about giving any money to Abound Energy.

Pay to play is the Chicago way.  President Obama has some explaining to do.

Too back Kyle Clark won’t get a second interview to press the president with these new details.

    What a dumb question! How naive can people be? He is a joke! Yet thousands of people will vote for him because they think he will give them something and later, if he is re-elected, they will mourn their decisions.!

    I think they should follow every dollar given and in whose pocket these American dollars ended up in. If we reelect him, we should immediately begin impeachment proceeding from failing to save those bracve men in Benghazi and the lining of his investors pockets.
