Kushner Cos. Gets $800 Million Federally Backed Apartment Loan

Hey @aoc let's dig into this one!
Trump appointed Joseph Otting to oversee the Federal Housing Finance Agency, which regulates Fannie and Freddie. Otting previously served as CEO of OneWest Bank, founded by now-Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, an ally of Kushner’s in the West Wing.

"The facts are that CIT received $2.3 billion TARP funds before filing one of the largest Chapter 11 bankruptcies in history,” Stein said. “We want to see an end to this subsidy of investors and financial institutions. We need investment in communities.”
The Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) is U.S. government funding used to purchase assets and equity from financial institutions signed into law by former president George W. Bush on October 3, 2008.
“Given the troubled history of both CIT and OneWest, we believe this merger should not move forward until leadership works with community groups to create a strong Community Benefit and Reinvestment Plan that will ensure a clear benefit as a result of this merger and ensure
no further harm by these banks,” said Paulina Gonzalez, executive director with CRC.

OneWest Bank is the successor to IndyMac Bank, whose failure cost the Federal Deposit Insurance Fund more than $10 billion and is still benefiting from loss sharing agreements with the FDIC.
“IndyMac’s mortgages caused a great deal of financial heartaches as thousands of people lost their homes,” said Sherri Jackson, president of the Multicultural Real Estate Alliance for Urban Change. “Regulators need to thoughtfully consider safeguards for the community, including
increased access to responsible, safe mortgages for first-time homebuyers prior to any acquisition moving forward.”

Since January 2007, Indymac/OneWest oversaw 45,000 foreclosures in California, and the CIT Group has had its own financial struggles.

Almost like the bank was on the road to bankruptcy until Donald won.
Otting reported owning $1 million to $5 million in CIT shares and $5 million to $25 million in restricted stock.

CIT, Otting said in his June 23 letter, will speed up the vesting of all his unrestricted stock once he’s confirmed. Otting, who left CIT in 2015, received
$10.5 million from a payout of his employment contract, his disclosure form shows.

He pledged to sell all his CIT shares within 90 days of taking over the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. The agency is now run by Keith Noreika, a banking lawyer
installed by the Trump administration on a temporary basis.
