Bank Of America's $12 Billion Fraud Settlement With Fannie

"We thought this would be dragged out at least another two years."

Good discussion yesterday on Bloomberg.  FBR banking analyst Paul Miller on BofA's agreement to pay Fannie Mae $11.7 billion to resolve home-loan repurchase claims.


BofA Settles Fraud With Fannie Mae For $12B, Moynihan Escapes Countrywide


Bank of America will make a $3.6 billion cash payment, spend $6.75 billion to buy back residential loans sold to Fannie Mae, and pay $1.3 billion in fees for taking too long to assist or foreclose on overdue borrowers, according to separate statements.  Even after these costs and an additional $2.5 billion for expenses that include litigation and a separate regulatory settlement, the Charlotte, North Carolina-based lender said the fourth quarter was “modestly” profitable.

It’s the latest effort by Chief Executive Officer Brian T. Moynihan to cap the damage caused by his predecessor’s takeover of Countrywide Financial Corp. and its defective subprime home loans.  Before today, the bank committed more than $40 billion since 2007 to cover the costs of refunds and litigation tied to faulty mortgages and foreclosures.  Much of that sum went to the government-sponsored entities of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

All the crooks are walking free with pockets full of money.
Tens of thousands to millions of americans who believed the american dream lies of the elite manipulators have had their futures stolen. The government that is supposed to represent and protect their interests has done exactly the opposite and backed the criminals. Now these pillars of crime and corruption want to take away our firearms.
80 percent of the people in this country have no confidence in the government to fix the present problems it caused. 70 to 80 percent believe the government is completely corrupt. If they try to disarm the american people by regulation or force they will start an armed insurrection that will eventually involve the whole country. Americans will fight before they let a corrupt, criminal establishment disarm them.

And how many $$$$ have the American public lost to the TBTF and associates? How much more will the taxpayer have to cough up that the banks didn't have to, compliments of the "O" and his DoJ?
