The Farce Is Complete: In The Case Of Countrywide, Congress Finds Itself Innocent Of Being “Friends Of Angelo”

Congress investigates themselves…

Zero Hedge-

Just when you thought the seemingly endless rabbit hole of Wall Street-Washington corruption, cronyism, co-option, crime and kickbacks may have finally come to an end, here comes the House Ethic Committee to pronounce that no ethics breaches were found among House members in its investigation involving the scandal surrounding Countrywide “VIP loans” and the “Friends of Angelo.” And in just doing so, the House effectively cleared itself of any wrongdoing and that’s it, case closed – move along… Move along.

For those who may have forgotten, it was only back in July that yet another House Committee, that for Oversight and Government Reform, found “Countrywide used its VIP Program to aid its lobbying efforts as well as to strengthen its relationship with taxpayer backed Fannie Mae. Countrywide partnered with Fannie Mae in a strategic business alliance that also included joint lobbying efforts.” Specifically, the report alleged that:

“The Committee’s investigation found Countrywide lobbyists and CEO Angelo Mozilo used discounted loans as a tool to ingratiate itself with policymakers in an effort to benefit the company’s business interests,” said Issa. “A former lobbyist for Countrywide testified that Members of Congress, staff, and other government officials were directed to the company’s VIP program as part of an effort to create a favorable impression of the company on Capitol Hill. This preferential treatment – that varied depending on the influence of the borrower – was not routinely offered to the public.”

    Just think, all of the stoic petitioning of our Congressional stooges to prevent FNMA from hurling more families to the street was met with backroom laughter and pompous moralizations.
