This is going to get interesting.
It is already in federal court with a judge appointed by President Trump.

Waa. Cry me a river. Trump could stumble onto the cure for cancer, aids, the common cold and depression and y'all would claim he threatens the Big Pharma industry.

Go stomp and drag your feet on the next street corner.

That's all you can do; ramble on about stomping feet, etc as opposed to addressing the issue. Why do Republicans hate consumer protections when Trump ran on the 'evils of Wall Street" and 'for the little guy'.


He's not draining the swamp; he's fillin git.

CFPB Deputy Director Sues Trump Admin for Control of Agency, Mulvaney Arrives to Job With Donuts

Seriously, your boss asks you to act when he retires and you think when the higher boss comes in he can't replace you...and you have the gall to file a lawsuit? What kind of drugs is she taking? Even the CFPB's General Counsel told her she doesn't have a leg to stand on, yet she's still writing memos using her Acting title. Someone needs to take her badge and keys, shut down her computer access and show her the door.

Her mentor is Elizabeth Warren and CFPB employees say something is fishy about her meteoric rise in the CFPB.

Trump's appointee wants to abolish the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. English may believe she is fighting for the bureau's very existence.

It is curious. After all, President Trump could have simply nominated someone to replace the outgoing director, and the Republican-controlled Senate could have confirmed quickly (since they only need a simple majority for an executive branch nominee). He could have nominated today, and by Friday it could be done.


Yet, he choose to pick Mr. Mulvaney to serve in the interim, whom already is the director of OBM. It is odd.


Of course, part of it could be that Mr. Trump is finding that the pool of talent willing to work for him is very shallow.

It could be that or it could be that Mulvaney has wanted to dismantle the agency and that is why he got this appointment. Have you noticed that a great many of Trump's appointments are like the foxes guarding the henhouse?


Trump's Republican masters (despite his populist campaign) tell him to do away with consumer protection. And he agrees because he doesn't know anything and seemingly cannot remember ONE thing that he campaigned on.

Why do Republicans HATE anything to do with consumer protection?

Nick Mulvaney was only given the position in order to dismantle the Bureau; he has said numerous times it should be dismantled.

God forbid we have any rules/regulations in place that might actually protect 'the little guy' a platform the liar Trump ran on.

Let the judges sort it out.
What she does is irrelevant and her ideology is irrelevant. Any "acting/interim" anyone in any job can be replaced. The question is whether a former director has the clout to appoint someone for a term rather than until the real appointee comes along. Counsel in the CFPB has already told her she doesn't have a leg to stand on.

Think of it in your own job. Your boss is leaving for a new job with a new employer at the same time the CEO of your company is retiring. Your boss, on his way out, makes you the interim director for 5 years. (That's the part that was wrong.) The new CEO comes in and wants his own interim director until the actual director is able to fill the job. Are you saying you are entitled to sit in that job for 5 years because some underboss who is leaving said so and tough titti*s for the new CEO? I don't think so.

CPB was created to keep control and power out of the reach of the people. It works like the same system as the EU.
Unelected and unaccountable dictators making decisions effecting the lives of people with no way for the people to have a voice. Just the kind of government liberals want and follow. Sheepherders !!!

The former director is authorized to appoint an interim director. That's the law.

The President is also presumably authorized to appoint an interim director. That's what the court will determine.

And it is relevant to your support of the President that you support him appointing an interim director who has publicly and repeatedly wanted the dismantling of this bureau. Because, consumer protection is such a worthless endeavor.

I agree with both you and Trump.
Trump has appointed people who will either downsize or close their respective agencies. Tillerson will downsize Department of State, DeVoss will downsize Department of Education, Priutt will downsize EPA, and Mulvaney will decimate CFPA.
They may not be able to completely close CFPA, but maybe they will come close.

But these people are not foxes guarding the henhouse. And intelligent fox would leave a few chickens alive so that he always has a source for a meal. There will be no chickens - and no swamp - when we finish.
