Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Showdown: Trump Appoints Director Who Vowed to Kill Agency

DN! looks at the showdown at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau after Director Richard Cordray stepped down Friday and appointed as his successor, Leandra English, the Bureau’s deputy director and his former chief of staff. Almost immediately, President Trump responded with his own announcement that he planned to go ahead with his own appointment of Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, who has voted in favor of killing the bureau. Now English is suing. DN! speaks with Lisa Donner, Executive Director of Americans for Financial Reform, which fought for the creation of the agency.
