FBI raids Solyndra offices as part of its joint operation with the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Energy, according to reports by several international news sites on Thursday, September 8, 2011.

Solyndra, the solar power company supported by US President Barack Obama for its green energy program, has gone bankrupt. Reports say that it is the first loan guarantee recipient of the Obama administration and has received $535 million in federal loans under the green energy program.

Federal auditors put the loan on hold due to complaints that loan guarantee applicants were given special treatment.

In an interview by ABC News, Public Affairs Specialist Peter D. Lee said on Thursday morning that no information about the raid can be given since the matter is under seal.

Below is an ABC News video of the FBI Solyndra raid.
