Hank Paulson: 'I Had To Pinch Myself Over Fannie'

Hank Paulson is back.  Keep an eye on your wallet.

Short clip from an interview with Judy Woodruff to be broadcast tonight on Bloomberg.

Henry Paulson "pinched himself" over Fannie Mae profit

"I could hardly believe what I was reading.  I had to pinch myself at first.  When housing recovers, of course they’re going to make more money, and that’s a good thing now, because the government losses will end being – or the taxpayer losses will be less than projected."

Paulson Says Russia Urged China to Dump Fannie, Freddie Bonds


Jan. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Russia urged China to dump its Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac bonds in 2008 in a bid to force a bailout of the largest U.S. mortgage-finance companies, former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said. Paulson learned of the “disruptive scheme” while attending the Beijing Summer Olympics, according to his memoir, “On The Brink.”

The Russians made a “top-level approach” to the Chinese “that together they might sell big chunks of their GSE holdings to force the U.S. to use its emergency authorities to prop up these companies,” Paulson said, referring to the acronym for government sponsored entities. The Chinese declined, he said.
