Pete Sessions got Countrywide VIP loan


Texas Rep. Pete Sessions, a top member of the House GOP leadership, received a VIP mortgage from defunct lender Countrywide Financial Corp., making him the fourth current member of the House who has acknowledged getting a sweetheart deal. Sessions’ office would not comment on the amount of the loan or when it was issued, although press reports state that it was a 2007 transaction worth as much as $1 million. The loan does not appear on any of Sessions’ annual financial disclosure reports on file with the House Clerk’s office. Lawmakers and senior aides must file such reports ...


Texas congressman latest named in Countrywide VIP probe


Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, was the fourth House member named in a recent probe into the Countrywide VIP loan program. Following a subpoena of Bank of America ($8.02 0%), Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chair of the House oversight committee wrote a letter to the ethics committee in December, signaling four members were connected to the "Friends of Angelo" program and allegedly received cheaper home loans in exchange for policy influence. California Republicans Howard McKeon and Elton Gallegly acknowledged earlier in the month they were two of the four, and Rep. Edolphus Towns, D-N.Y., has ...

Sessions Votes to Protect Small Businesses from Government Regulations and Expand Internet Service
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today issued the following statement after voting in favor of a measure that would ensure that small business providers of broadband Internet can devote their limited resources to broadband deployment, rather than compliance with onerous regulatory requirements: “Small and rural Internet providers are essential to families across Texas and the nation that might not have another choice when it comes to Internet access. The Internet has allowed our society to advance in ways once thought unfathomable, and all Americans should have reliable access to such an important creation. Unlike larger or national Internet service providers, small providers simply don’t have the bandwidth to comply with onerous federal regulations, which jeopardize their ability to succeed. Every dollar spent on unnecessary regulatory compliance is one dollar that is not being spent on new hires, network
Sessions: If President Obama Won't Take Care to Faithfully Execute Laws, Congress Will
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today issued the following statement after an original jurisdiction markup and hearing before the Rules Committee on a resolution allowing the Speaker of the House to file an amicus brief in the Supreme Court litigation United States v. Texas, which questions the constitutionality of President Obama’s Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) policy: “This case is not just about the president’s unlawful immigration policies. It’s about the fundamental powers given to the legislative branch under Article I of the United States Constitution, which details in section 8 that Congress, not the president, has the authority to ‘establish a uniform rule of naturalization.’ Yet this president has taken it upon himself to simply ignore certain statutes, selectively enforce others or bypass the legislative process entirely to create law by executive fiat.
Sessions Votes in Support of Resolution Allowing Speaker to File Amicus Brief in U.S. v. TX Case
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today issued the following statement after voting in favor of a resolution allowing the Speaker of the House to file an amicus brief in the Supreme Court litigation United States v. Texas, which questions the constitutionality of President Obama’s Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) policy:“I have spoken out regularly about the fact that President Obama’s policies on amnesty are unwise, unlawful and unconstitutional. Programs like DAPA and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) will only hurt the American economy and our way of life, and are inherently unfair to the thousands who follow the law and wait their turn to come to America legally. “But this case is not just about the president’s unlawful immigration policies. It’s about the fundamental powers given to the legislative branch under Article I of the United States Constitutio
Sessions Votes in Favor of the SENSE Act
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today issued the following statement after voting in favor of a measure that would allow the nation’s energy sector to reclaim “coal refuse,” which would provide lower energy costs, increase job creation and remediate abandoned coal mines: “American energy producers have discovered a method to recycle waste found at many old coal mines and turn it into an affordable, reliable energy source, yet the EPA has once again stood in the way. These environmentally beneficial facilities simply can’t afford to comply with existing EPA regulations and are forced to close the door on reusing and recycling materials that otherwise would be considered useless. Today the House took a stand against yet another onerous EPA regulation and passed the SENSE Act. I proudly joined my colleagues in supporting this common sense solution to create jobs and provide affordable energy
