CBS News and the National Journal have learned that Newt Gingrich's former consulting firm will release at least one more of his contracts with Freddie Mac on Tuesday evening at around 10 pm.

The Center for Health Transformation previously released the 2006 contract with Freddie Mac, which was for only $300,000 of the $1.6 million Gingrich reportedly received from the government-backed mortgage giant.

Although some reports stated that other contracts had been lost by the consulting firm, a campaign spokesperson said this was not true and that they just had trouble finding their files.
