Well let me pick up without -- congresswoman Bachmann because you accuse speaker Gingrich -- peddling his influence.
Was congressional Republicans to help the companies that paid him.
Tens of millions of dollars since he's left office.
Given his denial over time and again tonight that he's denies ever having lobbied.
What is your other evidence hard evidence that he engaged in influence back.
Why is the fact that we that we know that he cashed paychecks from Freddie Mac that's the best evidence that you can have.
Over one point six million dollars and frankly I am shocked.
Listening to the former speaker of the house.
Because he's defending that continuing practice -- Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae there's a big difference between a credit union.
And Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and they -- the epicenter of the mortgage financial melt -- I was trying to see these two entities.
Put into bankruptcy.
Because -- frankly need to go away when the speaker had his hand out he was taking one point six million dollars.
To influence senior Republicans.
To keep this scam going in Washington DC that's absolutely wrong.
We can't have -- -- nominee for the Republican Party someone who continues to stand for Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae they need to be shut down.
Not built up.
Easiest answer is that's just not true.
What she just -- is factually not true.
I never lobbied under any circumstance.
I never won and as suggested in any way.
Do we do this in fact.
I tried to help defeat the housing act when the Democrats -- -- of that house.
If you back and talk to former congressman Rick Lazio he'll tell you when we were passing housing reform while I was speaker.
I never at any time.
Tried to slow down reform effort in fact I helped him pass the reform bill and I think sometimes people -- to have facts before the league wild allegations.
Well after the debate that we -- last week -- a fact came out and said that everything that I said was true.
And that evidences that speaker Gingrich -- one point six million dollars.
You don't need to be with -- that technical definition of being a lobbyist.
To still be influence peddling with senior Republicans in Washington DC.
To get them to do your bidding and the bidding was to keep this grandiose scam Freddie Mac going.
That's -- that is something that our nominee.
Can't stand for we have to shot down these government and -- races and we've got to -- and I think that's shocking that he's saying that.
And I just say two things -- Gingrich quickly.
Let's say two things first my policy is to break up both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is not anything like what you just described.
I -- state unequivocally for every person watching tonight.
I have never once.
Changed my positions because of any kind of payment.
Because -- the truth is.
I was a national figure who was doing just fine doing the whole variety things including writing bestselling books making speeches.
And the fact is I only chose to work with people whose values I shared.
And having people have a chance to buy a house is of value I believe still is important in America now to Neil Cavuto with questions about pick out.
