CT: Dodd Where Are the Tapes?


The Wall Street Journal Today Reports That Recorded Conversations Between Countrywide And VIP Loan Recipients Have Been Destroyed. “The discovery that Countrywide Financial Corp. recorded phone conversations with borrowers in a controversial mortgage program that included public officials — and that those recordings have been destroyed — has prompted new congressional calls for more information about the program.”  (John R. Emshwiller, “Phone Calls Add To Din Over Loans,” The Wall Street Journal, 9/28/09)

Congress must demand answers on this.  Who destroyed these tapes and why?  Who are they protecting?
