WASHINGTON, DC – SEPTEMBER 10: U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson testifies during a Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee hearing on September 10, 2019 in Washington, DC. Trump administration officials were testifying before the committee in support of a report released last week calling for the privatization of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the mortgage-finance behemoths taken over by the federal government 11 years ago to prevent their collapse in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.
