Last week Freddie Mac released Newt Gingrich from his non-disclosure agreement with them. Now Newt's old firm is refusing to do the same:
A lawyer for a consulting firm founded by former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich said he was barring the release of a contract between the Republican presidential candidate and Freddie Mac.
Gingrich said last week it would be up to his partners in his former company, the Center for Health Transformation, to determine whether to release the documents. Earlier, he said he would be happy to release the contract, yet couldn’t make it public because Freddie Mac, the mortgage company now under U.S. conservatorship, refused to waive a confidentiality agreement.
Freddie Mac officials said last week that Gingrich was “welcome” to release the contract, under which his consulting firm was paid at least $1.6 million over eight years for his services.
This goes back to something I've said before. The right constantly wants everything Barack Obama did in college 20-30 years ago made public, yet their candidates can hide things they just did a couple of years ago.
This also shows that Newt has been hiding something about his time consulting for Freddie. Now the media will start digging to find out what that is and once they do the right will start their little girly cries of "the liberal media". Of course it's nothing more than the media doing their actual jobs.
