CFPB Official Sues Trump Administration to Become Acting Director

Mon Nov 27, 2017

According to a report in the Washington Examiner, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau deputy director Leandra English Sunday filed suit against President Trump and White House budget director Mick Mulvaney in order to ensure she takes over as head of the CFPB instead of Mulvaney on Monday.

English, who was named the deputy director of the CFPB Friday by outgoing director Richard Cordray, is supposed to take over the reins of the bureau until a permanent successor is confirmed by the Senate, according to the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 that created the bureau.

However, the White House argues Trump has the authority under a 1998 law to appoint Cordray’s interim director. On Friday, Trump appointed Mulvaney to the post where he would serve in addition to his role as director of the White House Office of Management and Budget.

Now it appears the question of who’s in charge on Monday will be settled in the courts.
