Even though the Solyndra decision was above Chu’s pay grade, in tomorrow’s Congressional testimony (release tonight), Energy Secretary Steven Chu volunteers to take the blame for Solyndra.
Chu will testify tomorrow that,
As the Secretary of Energy, the final decisions on Solyndra were mine, and I made them with the best interest of the taxpayer in mind.
Rep. Cliff Stearns, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s investigations panel, said in response to Environment and Energy PM,
“He can talk about the big picture” of the global energy market, Stearns said. But “the hearing tomorrow is about Solyndra, it going bankrupt, being investigated by the FBI and the lack of administrative control by Secretary Chu and the Department of Energy.”
Tune in tomorrow for the fireworks.
