White House Turns Over Some Solyndra E-Mails

The White House on Friday turned over some, but not all, of the e-mails sought by the House Energy and Commerce Committee through its subpoenas issued earlier this month.  We posted most recently here.

Recall that the White House argued that the subpoenas were too broad and failed to balance the interests of the executive branch with the legitimate oversight interests of the Committee.

The Committee says that it's reviewing the e-mails now.  While Committee leaders acknowledged the White House's effort, they also said that the documents are "limited" and "self-selected."  According to the White House, it already gave the Committee over 85,000 pages of documents, and the Committee is releasing them "in a way that presented a misleading and inaccurate account to the public."
