2 people are now claiming to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

6 Most Important Things in Business Today

She has filed a lawsuit in federal court in Washington, DC, seeking to halt Mulvaney's appointment. Mulvaney himself has in the past described the agency as a "joke", and is widely expected to dismantle much of what it has achieved in the past decade.

The longtime CFPB director Richard Cordray stepped down from his post on Friday, naming Leandra English, his chief of staff, as acting director.

The vitriolic legal battle between Trump's CFPB pick and Cordray's appointee has subsequently spilled over into the CFPB offices. English says that as deputy director, she became the acting director under the law. English, most recently the agency's chief of staff, has previously held key leadership positions at the CFPB, the Office of Management and Budget, and the Office of Personnel Management. Steven A. Engel, newly confirmed head of the office, wrote that, while the deputy director may serve as acting director under the statute, the president still has authority under the Vacancies Reform Act. It is unclear if English is bringing any breakfast. The dueling appointments have sparked a number of questions as to who is running the agency and a legal challenge of Trump's authority.

"The President should fire her immediately and anyone who disobeys Director Mulvaney's orders should also be fired summarily", Cotton said.

On Monday, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) found itself in the middle of a freaky back and forth between Acting Director Leandra English - handpicked by outgoing chief Richard Cordray - and President Trump's chosen CFPB successor, Mick Mulvaney, who arrived at the agency carrying what appeared to be boxes of Dunkin' Donuts, presumably for his new "staffers". Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who proposed the bureau and helped set it up, according to a spokeswoman for Warren.

It'll be an interesting Monday at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

There is some serious confusion-and a brewing legal battle-surrounding who will lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a consumer watchdog group created after the Great Recession.

Senior Trump administration officials said Saturday that the law was on their side and they expect no trouble when Trump's pick for temporary director of the CFPB shows up for work.

"Please disregard any instructions you receive from Ms". He was one of the last Obama-era political holdouts. Even the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel acknowledged, in its November 25 memo to White House Counsel Donald McGahn, that this language applies, conceding that "the resignation of the Director would satisfy the requirement of 'absence or unavailability.' Therefore, the statute would permit a properly appointed Deputy Director to serve as the Acting Director during a vacancy".

Cordray said Monday that the issue should be settled by a court. However the law is clear: "Director Mulvaney is the Acting Director of the CFPB", said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders in a statement. In a staff-wide memo, he added that it had been the "joy of [his] life" to "serve our country as the first director of the Consumer Bureau by working alongside" CFPB staffers. McLeod recognizes, as she must, that the House-passed version of the law creating the CFPB would have made the FVRA available to the president in circumstances like this - but - that Congress deliberately replaced that version with one not giving the president a power to circumvent Dodd-Frank.
