Press Release | Nadler and NY Delegation Assail Iowa Attorney General for Excluding NY Attorney General from Mortgage Settlement Talks

Nadler and NY Delegation Assail Iowa Attorney General for Excluding NY Attorney General from Mortgage Settlement Talks

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Tuesday, August 30, 2011

NEW YORK, NY – Today, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, and 20 members of New York’s congressional delegation chided Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller for his dismissal of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman last week from ongoing mortgage settlement negotiations, demanding that Attorney General Miller explain how he intends to ensure that New York’s interests are represented during the remainder of the negotiation talks.  The national committee of state Attorneys General are working to settle numerous complex legal matters arising from the 2008 housing collapse.

“As members of the New York congressional delegation, we are united in fighting for a fair resolution of the housing crisis that has devastated tens of thousands of families across our state,” the members wrote.  “That is why we are deeply troubled by your recent action to silence New York’s voice by removing New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman from an executive committee negotiating a nationwide settlement with the banks.  We ask that you explain how New York’s interests will be protected as negotiations move forward.”

Below is the full text of the letter (also attached as PDF):

The Honorable Tom Miller

Attorney General

1305 East Walnut Street

Des Moines, IA 50319

 

Dear Attorney General Miller:

As members of the New York congressional delegation, we are united in fighting for a fair resolution of the housing crisis that has devastated tens of thousands of families across our state.  That is why we are deeply troubled by your recent action to silence New York’s voice by removing New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman from an executive committee negotiating a nationwide settlement with the banks.  We ask that you explain how New York’s interests will be protected as negotiations move forward.

New York’s homeowners and investors have been hit hard by the economic impact of wrongdoing related to the mortgage crisis.  According to the FBI, New York ranked as one of the top ten states for known or suspected mortgage fraud activity for two consecutive years.  It also was one of the top ten states for reports of mortgage fraud across all originations in 2010.  Undoubtedly, our state, the third largest in the nation, deserves a seat at any negotiating table that could potentially limit our state’s ability to investigate and penalize wrongdoing done within our borders.

Raising legitimate concerns about elements of the proposed settlement is a responsibility of every member of the executive committee and should never be the basis for silencing a viewpoint.  Your removal of Attorney General Schneiderman sets a dangerous precedent for other attorneys general who, out of fear of what might happen, may choose silence over voicing valid concerns with particular aspects of the proposed settlement.  Moreover, your attempt to banish opposition rather than address varying viewpoints undermines both the validity of the process and any settlement reached by the committee.

New York deserves adequate representation during the remainder of the mortgage settlement negotiations.  We look forward to hearing how you will ensure that New York’s voice is heard.

Sincerely,

Jerrold Nadler

    Maybe Ron Paul can straighten out the Iowa AG with a little History lesson about Andrew Jackson 1835. He paid off the debt and took back the government that was then run by the bankers. They know how to asume a bought government.

  2. DanJS says:

    I read the whole letter, including the signatures…. It must be authenic — Linda Green did not sign it.

    interesting.

    Nadler is my representative.
    months ago, i ran to meet up w/ Nadler on the street as i spotted him as he was about to visit my councilwoman’s office.

    i told him that we need his help and about how my family has been devastated by fraudclosure.

    he responded blandly, “it is a court matter. you have to go through the courts.”

    i told him that “the fraud is massive, fraud in the origination and foreclosure and is affecting many people. something has to be done. it has to go beyond the courts”

    in his letter to tom miller, nadler states that the FBI says NY is in the Top Ten for both suspected mortgage
    fraud and fraud in the origination.

    do you think Nadler is finally getting it?

    i’m glad he sent the letter along w/ other NY elected representatives.

I was told by a county recorder’s office clerk from another county a while back that you have to have your i’s dotted and your t’s crossed before you go and see and attorney……This statement in itself is very telling of the broad scope of FORECLOSUREGATE…SCANDALOUS!!!!!… Homeowners can’t even trust the attorneys…..WOW!!!!

  5. Ron Moss says:

    Securitization will be equaled or nuetrilizaed by “Titanicization”. Eric Scneiderman will adopt that feature from his education from me. It was a military gesture I learned while stationed in St. Johns Newfoundland.while in trhe U.S. A.F.

    • lvent says:

      Hi Ron Moss… Titanicization…….does that mean the same thing as mass deception?

      • lvent says:

    • lvent says:

      I MEANT TO SAY THE U.S. CONSTITUTION AS WELL AS THE U.S. BILL OF RIGHTS ARE BEING THROWN UNDER THE BUS…

    • It is so obvious that every word you say is true. It is hard to imagine this could happen to America. More people see this than these criminals think. Most of my friends, relatives and customers see this with their eyes open wide. These criminals are used to people with their heads in the sand, watching TV, however the crimes has become so outrageous and effected every family that they have woken in fear to what has become of America and see it for what it is. I believe the elections will show this and the bought politicians have seen their last days in politics. Public demonstrations in controlled non violent protest are going to grow. There is so much anger. Americans use their heads also. We dont want harm to any American in a violent protest. The masses protesting in non violent protest will show the bought politicians they chose the wrong path. The tax payers pay them for honest servicing doing their fudiciary duties to protect us from these crimes, not set us up to be victimized. Law suits against the bought politicians who breach their fudiciary duties and violate their honest service need to be filed. There are laws against these acts of greed and corruption. The “Wall Street and the Financial Crisis;anatomy of a Financial Collaspe”, the investigative report for the senate, and tataltail law suits coming out should be evidence enough to bring law suits with all the elements of “RICO” and the above against the government officials that have been proven to be bought off. We all know I vent is stating the absolute truth of the matter.

  8. Stupendous Man - Defender of Liberty, Foe of Tyranny says:

    I disagree HMR. It likely has no teeth at all. And how could it? Miller is under no obligation I am aware of to respond to a New York congressional delegation (NYCG).

    I believe the NYCG has taken a necessary step, and has articulately asked pertinent and important questions.

    But as above I am not aware Miller has any obligation to report back to them.

  9. housemanrob says:

    NOW THIS….HAS REAL SUBSTANCE TO IT…..NOW THE BALL IS IN THE PERPS COURT…IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHAT CROOKED IDEA THEY COME UP WITH NEXT! …………………IMPEACH PRESIDENT OBAMA!!

    • housemanrob says:

      Fuck Miller……MYpoint is…the pressure is mounting and excuses is all they have!

      • Stupendous Man - Defender of Liberty, Foe of Tyranny says:

        Agreed.

        But I still don’t expect ANY ONE in, or ANY BRANCH of, government to do anything truly useful. Justice, if there be any, will only be coming to individuals that have fought long and hard.

      • lvent says:

        They are a cabal of liars and treasonists……it is catching up with all of them……the people are waking up……..everywhere I go more and more of MAINSTREET are waking up to FORECLODREGATE and the massive cover up for this massive Hitler Plan that all started on 9/11…bin laden was a scapegoat like Lee Harvey Oswald, a ruse, a distraction for the real bin ladens, the financial terrorists on Wall Street……and at the Federal Reserve….to destroy America from within………This whole Hitler Plan we are all living right now began in earnest when these same terrorists assassinated J.F.K..That has been confirmed to me by QUALIFIED and HIGHLY REPUTABLE SOURCES…

      • lvent says:

        FORECLOSUREGATE IS THE COVER UP FOR THIS HITLER PLAN BY THE RULING ELITE….. THEY ARE EVIL AND WANT TO STEAL _EVERYTHING_ FROM THE PEOPLE……….

      • housemanrob says:

        But, S.M. We have to start gaining ground somewhere……………..and my gut tells me this is it!
