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?
