CFPB Deputy Director Sues Trump To Block Mulvaney As Interim Leader


The deputy director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) on Sunday night sued President Trump in order to block Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney from taking over as acting director of the agency.

The office of the CFPB’s head council is expected to challenge her suit, claiming Trump has the authority to override the bureau’s line of succession, Reuters reported Sunday night. Read more at The Hill.



  1. Dodd-Frank gives Trump the right to appoint the acting director as it doesn’t mention succession in case of vacancy so than the FVRA kicks in all its says is

    (5) Deputy director.–There is established the position of
    Deputy Director, who shall–
    (A) be appointed by the Director; and
    (B) serve as acting Director in the absence or
    unavailability of the Director.

    which has nothing to do with a vacancy in the directorship its only talking of cases where the director is not there or unavailable not if there is no director as when the director resigns
