Republicans suspect Obama of lobbying of interests of the sponsors

Congressmen - republicans have accused the White house of pressure upon the commission which has countenanced the loan in half-billion dollars of company Solyndra.

One of the main investors of the company was billionaire George Kajzer, one of key sponsors of campaign of Barack Obama during presidential race in 2008. The decision on granting of the state loan was accepted the special commission Administratively - budgetary management of the White house in September, 2009. In two years, in the end of August 2011, company Solyndra has been recognised by the bankrupt and was converted into court with the request to provide protection against creditors. Thus, the debt in 535 million dollars and remains not paid.

According to The Washington Post newspaper, in Presidential Administration often were interested, when loan granting will be countenanced, and insisted on process acceleration. Representatives of the White house deny charges of republicans. The Kaiser also denies that has used political influence.
