OBAMA had Dodd make the changes to protect the bonuses of the AIG people.
From CNNDodd acknowledged his role in the change after a Treasury Department official told CNN the administration pushed for the language.
Both Dodd and the official, who asked not to be named, said it was because administration officials were afraid the government would face numerous lawsuits without the new language.
Dodd, a Democrat, told CNN's Dana Bash and Wolf Blitzer that Obama administration officials pushed for the language to an amendment designed to limit bonuses and "golden parachutes" at those companies.
"The administration had expressed reservations," Dodd said. "They asked for modifications. The alternative was losing the amendment entirely."
Sooooooooooooo, weve gone from Obama NOT knowing about the bonuses and the protection for any of these bonuses and being OUTRAGED! Hes just OUTRAGED. They cant JUSTIFY this, this is just OUTRAGEOUS......."I agreed reluctantly," Dodd said. "I was changing the amendment because others were insistent."
Dodd said he did not speak to high-ranking administration officials and the change came after his staff spoke with staffers from Treasury.
Toooooooooooooooooooooooooo KNOWING ABOUT THEM AND PROTECTING THEM FOR THE GOOD OF THE NATION.
