Mulvaney said "this Administration follows the Law" & if there is an injunction he will follow it.

Chuckie Schumer can get Mulvaney out there ASAP by stopping his stall tactics on Presidential Appointments.
Mulvaney doesn't want that job, he is following the orders of his Boss - after all, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was created under the Executive Branch and that makes the President the TOP Executive.
The longer that Schumer drags out appointments, the longer that Mulvaney will be there.

A major problem with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is that Congress has ZERO Authority over them, including ANY oversight or even Budget control. That needs to be fixed.
Do you really want congress to have direct control over the CFPB? Seems to me that would defeat the purpose of a watchdog agency, congress has quite a history of putting banks ahead of the good of the country going back to the Keating 5.

Those Obama appointees can't believe Hildabeast did not get elected so they are hanging on with their fingernails.

Reinstate Glass-Stegal and then eliminate the CFPB.

We didn't need more government. We need less.


Andrew Jackson warned everyone about the centralized banking....
He was right. Serpents and thieves.

From a different forum:

Quote:
I have a niece that works at CFPB headquarters, I was chatting on Facebook with her a while ago about this. Trump and Mulvaney shot down Richard Cordray's attempted coup with ease. According to her, a large cadre of Whitehouse personnel swooped in late Sunday night, they changed everything from email to building access to the signs on the doors to make Mulvaney the one and only director.

When Cordray's "appointed" director Leandra English came in the next morning, she found her belongings moved out of the directors' office and her badge wouldn't even work to get into the directors hallway, she had been removed from director email access as well. The "coup" folks were caught completely off guard as they never thought Trump/Mulvaney would do something so brazen. Supposedly she stomped out in a fit of rage, threatening to sue (because having lost all access, she couldn't do much else).

According to my niece, while there are certainly a lot of hard core leftist at CFPB, there are significant number of "closet" Trump supporters as well. She said even some of the hard core leftist were impressed at how smoothly Mulvaney shot down the coup and took over smoothly like nothing had happened.

So much for details, let's just debate titles of issues and legislation.
Because "Dodd-Frank" is all that needs to be said, and it fits nicely on a bumper sticker. Trump doesn't have a legal leg to stand on in this matter.

It all went south, when Glass-Stegal was dropped, during the Clinton days.

They had to create 27 new government agencies and hire 30,000 federal employees to do a 1/4 of what Glass-Stegal. A slush fund for government was created and the reason for(2006-2009 crash)

The NUMBER 1 reason why I voted for Donald J Trumps. Leftist federal judges have long shown their disregard for the Constitution and rule of law (as the travel ban cases show most recently).

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.
You lack an understanding of how the Senate works. While a nominee only requires a simple majority vote to be confirmed (thanks Dems ), Dems still have considerable stalling tactics at their disposal that would hold up any nominee. And this doesn't even get into the point that it takes time to find and vet a qualified individual to lead the agency on a permanent basis. You don't just pick someone out of a hat to lead this organization, especially when current law makes it extremely difficult to get rid of such an individual.

He's got the Constitution on his side. Congress set this up to be paid by the Federal reserve which gives them no accountability to anybody.

Two statutes by congress are conflicting here. Congress can't control the money that's going into it.

This is not recognizable by the Constitution.

There are a lot of irons in the fire that Mick Mulvaney is looking at.

Much more on this to follow.

Don't you worry, we'll get this mess straightened out.

2009 probably would have happened with or without Glass-Steagall. CFPB has many other functions other than loan standards.
