Sean Hannity linked to property empire aided by foreclosures, HUD: report

Fox News host who said Trump’s fixer ‘knows real estate’ has a portfolio that includes support from Department of Housing and Urban Development, a fact he did not mention when interviewing secretary Ben Carson last year

    You gotta laugh at this. Apparently, Mr. Cohen didn’t have terribly deep conversations with Sean. And it wouldn’t be surprising if Mr. Hannity’s real estate attorney doesn’t have in-depth knowledge of the securitization scheme… because Sean’s comment, “I hate the stock market. I prefer real estate” demonstrates the naivety most of the public has about the housing market. If Hannity didn’t pay all cash and buy properties outright and perform full & detailed title search on each and every property – chances are he’s still in the stock market. That’s what mortgages are – stock/securities transactions. Not to mention the fact that half the time these banks don’t know exactly where and what they have rehypothecated.
