(CNN) - Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will not release more Freddie Mac-related documents, according to campaign spokesman R.C. Hammond.
Though the contender for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination said Wednesday that his campaign would "do what they can" to release more information about payments he received as a consultant from the government-backed mortgage group, Hammond backtracked later in the evening.
When asked via email whether the campaign would release more Freddie Mac-related documents or if a fact sheet it released in the afternoon was the last word on the issue, Hammond responded to CNN, "last word."

And how many records has the president not released, CNN??
It's unfortunate that some have decided to allow the media to influence their thinking.
Sounds like joe up at gay valley, I will not release my pay, court begged to differ. Does the freedom of information act not apply here. The fool should know obummer will get the info, in a plan envelope with no finger prints.
Is that u barney?
I am very conservative but I don’t give a hoot about his consulting. No one gives a crap about Franklin Raines getting millions in severance for destroying the entire economy with loans to people who could’nt ever pay them based in part because of race. Talk about that and then we will yawn off some more on Newt telling those idiots to stop making those give away loans guaranteed by the taxpayers!! Give me a break.
He can release records when BO does.
barney fwank has his trolls out today....they are all over fr.
newt should release when obummer releases bc..
Maybe Gloria Allred can dig up a couple of bimbo’s who use to work Feddie and Fanny who will claim that Newt sold his soul to Feddie and Fanny and then a week or so later have their bankrupt gambling boyfriends confirm all they claim.
HA! HA!......they are desperate. Obama is going down and the press can’t do anything about it.
GIVE’EM HELL NEWT.........!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Newt needs to convince the voters that there is nothing behind this $1.6M consulting services gig, not his opponents.
If there is nothing more to his consult than his suggesting that the Freddie plan was a bad one then why all the fuss?
Something is rotten in Denmark, as Newt’s ancestors would more than likely say.
Dang FR is being overrun by crony capitalists. Face facts, Newt has been feeding at the public trough for years. And now you suckers take the bait on how he is going to clean out the barn. Conclusion, you all just give cleaning out DC lip service just like Newt.
OK NEWT, now really. After this you know that the O-minions are already scurrying like the little RATS they are, going through the DOCs.
What a dumb move. Newt Newt Newt.
But we know you do have a temper.
Gingrich has said that he didn't lobby for Freddie Mac and sources cited in NPR and Bloomberg News reports confirm that.<
So really what this whole bogus kerfuffle is about is the fact that the Democrats, and a lot of people on FR, can tie the Gingrich name to Freddie Mac. Big freaking deal. Not to mention the fact that it was 10 years ago.
I'm not for any candidate at this point but it just chaps my ass to see FReepers helping the MSM to tar and feather one of their own using trumped up charges.
After he’s sworn in as President, you can file a request to see his PRIVATE BUSINESS documents.
Staying true to your mission at Freerepublic you make soemthing up, try to start an innuendo rumor, or just flat out lie. You so tough, retread.
LOL, jealousy is so ugly on you.
