NBC News has learned that Robert Feinberg - a former Countrywide loan officer who handled what were known as the "VIP" mortgages - spent six hours last Thursday with a six-person team from the Justice Department. The team included prosecutors from the Public Integrity section, which handles investigations of possible public corruption.
In one instance of a "Friends of Angelo" deal, Mozilo sent an e-mail to Feinberg ordering him to "Take off one point" on a loan to Sen. Conrad. That one point equaled a savings of $10,700 in fees.
Hey Angelo... pretty "disgusting".
Explain this one, Lori.
Looks like the presence of Robert Feinberg has made quick work of the lame defense that nobody "knew" they were getting VIP treatment, or that it was just innocent pricing based on intrinsic risk.
