Biden replaces FHFA Director after Supreme Court ruling
Last week, the Supreme Court rejected most claims from investors who challenged a government decision to channel profits from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to the Treasury Department. As NPR reports, instead of dismantling the agency, the court agreed that the FHFA has a design flaw that violates the Constitution: the president must be able to remove the agency's director without cause. Shortly after the decision, the Biden administration fired FHFA Director Mark Calabria and appointed Sandra Thompson as Acting DIrector of the FHFA.

Non-QM market revs up
Inside Mortgage Finance reports that after eight days without any new expanded-credit MBS deals, three transactions hit the market at once. All deals were affiliates of Invictus Capital Partners, Angelo Gordon & Co., and Shelter Growth Capital partners. That same day, Angel Oak Mortgage made its market debut under the AOMR ticker.

Citing Census Bureau data, the Wall Street Journal reports that about 4.2 million Americans are "very likely or somewhat likely" to face an eviction or foreclosure in the next two months. These are the final extensions renters and homeowners receive, according to the Biden administration.
