With the White House facing a possible criminal investigation over the Solyndra scandal, look for more and more current and former members of the Obama administration to go full blown Sgt. Schultz.

Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s Chief of Staff when the Solyndra loan was finalized, sets the pace:

Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel says that he doesn’t recall the Obama administration’s loan to Solyndra, the bankrupt solar panel manufacturer that received more than $500 million in taxpayer loans and is now under investigation.

Emanuel, the mayor of Chicago, told local radio station WLS that he was not going to talk about the company.

“I don’t actually remember that or know about it. So, what I’m dealing is with what I’m dealing with here today,” Emanuel told a reporter.

More from the Daily Caller:

E-mail communications from the White House obtained by the House Energy and Commerce Committee point to more involvement in the deal than perhaps Emanuel would care to remember.

The vice president was scheduled to announce the closure of the Solyndra deal on Sept. 4, and several e-mails show pressure from the White House to approve the loan.

In one e-mail, an assistant to Emanuel wrote on Aug. 31, 2009 to the Office of Management and Budget about the administration’s upcoming announcement on Solyndra and asked whether “there is anything we can help speed along on OMB side.”

Predicted Emanuel response: “Wait… I had an assistant?
