$1.6 million paid out to a consulting firm over the course of 10 yearsthat’s chump change, not a bribe for buying influence. Further, apparently Newt didn’t do anything that Freddie Mac believed they could use on their behalfperhaps because Newt told them what they didn’t want to hear?:
“He was expected to provide written material that could be circulated among free-market conservatives in Congress and in outside organizations, said two former company executives familiar with Gingrichs role at the firm. He didnt produce a white paper or any other document the firm could use on its behalf, they said.”
“perhaps because Newt told them what they didnt want to hear?:”
and WHO forced the banks to make those loans - by suing them in court on these grounds - “(denying poor people loans because of their ethnic heritage).
Who was their lawyer - a young, “clean and articulate” lawyer from Chicago -
I wish someone would bring this out -
Thanks for the link.
