Gingrich Firm Refuses to Release Freddie Mac Contract

January 09, 2012

Jan. 9 (Bloomberg) -- A lawyer representing a consulting firm founded by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich today barred the release of a contract between the Republican presidential candidate and Freddie Mac.

“The risks of any kind of a confidentiality waiver, even if the company tried to limit it to one client or one document, are too great to be feasible,” said Stefan Passantino, a lawyer representing the Center for Health Transformation.

Freddie Mac, a government-sponsored mortgage company, said Gingrich was free to release his firm’s contract with the agency. Gingrich left it to his former partners to decide.
