Written by broebling on November 28, 2017
Mick Mulvaney, President Donald Trump’s pick as leader of the nation’s top financial watchdog agency, said Monday that he was imposing a 30-day freeze on hiring and new rule making as he moves to take control of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Meanwhile, Leandra English, who was elevated to the same position by the bureau’s outgoing director, met with top Senate Democrats. She has asked a judge to issue a temporary restraining order to block Mulvaney from taking over the bureau. Mulvaney, the current White House budget director, said on Monday that he would keep the CFPB open.
