Chairman Edolphus “Ed” Towns (D-NY) today released the following statement ahead of issuing a subpoena to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) for documents related to AIG counterparty payments (counterparties).
“To help the Committee’s investigation of payments made by AIG to its counterparties, I am issuing a subpoena today to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

Thank you, Rep. Towns. This is a major step forward.
