Fannie Mae: Joint Status Report Regarding August 13 Status Conference (Fairholme Lawsuit) by TimHoward717

Status report for tomorrow’s conference.I will not make it, but Mark will be there. I have had a few interesting conversations here on the Vineyard. It seems that the failure of Fannie Mae / Federal National Mortgage Assctn Fnni Me (OTCBB:FNMA) and Freddie Mac / Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp (OTCBB:FMCC)’s shared risk MBS is causing many to question the validity of the GSE bills. I have some great stuff to share over the next few days. I think everyone will appreciate what Congressman John Lewis wrote in a book he signed for us. I’ll post a picture later. As well as political updates I want to post the deeper analysis of Judge Collyers opinion. Keep the Faith!
