Just last month the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), the agency responsible for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, responded to our FOIA lawsuit by telling us that all of the documents we seek are not "FOIA-able"! Here's the exact language the Obama agency used in its recent court filing: "...Any records created by or held in the custody of the Enterprises reflecting their political campaign contributions or policies, stipulations and requirements concerning campaign contributions necessarily are private corporate documents.

Gotta give Sandy Berger a chance to get over there first.
The orders are from David Gregory’s wife.
YOU WILL NOT HEAR ABOUT THIS ON THE MSM NEWS.

When did Fannie and Freddie become “private” corporations?
This is just so much BS!!! These little fifedoms of preferential party finance and influence have got to be exposed. It’s not their damn money! If they aren’t willing to open their books, THEY ARE HIDING SOMETHING!

While at the HUD, Cuomo required Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to buy $2.4 trillion in mortgages over a 10-year span. Cuomo said that meant affordable housing for 28.1 million low- and moderate-income families.
“Fannie and Freddie’s purchases of subprime loans skyrocketed,” the editorial says.
“The problem wasn’t merely that the Cuomo HUD was raising the volume of loans for which taxpayers would be on the hook. It was also encouraging a dangerous decline in underwriting standards at these government-sponsored enterprises “
