On March 25, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Representative Elijah Cummings (D-MD) sent a letter to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry challenging the regulators’ response to the lawmakers request for documents and information regarding the regulators’ decision to amend a group of April 2011 consent orders with mortgage servicers and cease the Independent Foreclosure Review originally required by those orders. The lawmakers detail the responses and state that the majority of their 14 requests went unanswered. The letter notes recent reports that the foreclosure reviews revealed wrongful foreclosures of military members and borrowers who ever missed a payment, and suggests the regulators are shielding the servicers’ “criminal activity.”
