The bottom line is the Trump administration used taxpayer money to fight every lawsuit the shareholders put up against them. He then installed Calabria as FHFA head, who also talked a good game before he was in office, before setting ridiculously high capital standards, and doing nothing toward release from conservatorship. <br /> <br /> Meanwhile, Trump appointee Mnuchin at Treasury stood by and watched it all. <br /> <br /> Unless Thompson has another good card to play, this is going nowhere. <br /> <br /> I'm with Bradford's prior thesis. Looks like the only opportunity is a utility model, which would be damn fine by me at this point.
