BREAKING: CFPB Legal Counsel Agrees With President Trump on Appointment Authority…

What’s this? …MORE winning?  …Sheesh.  Well, just add it to the pile in the corner over there, along with all the other winning we haven’t got around to yet.

The internal legal counsel for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has just agreed with the White House Office of Legal Counsel that President Trump has full authority to appoint OMB Director Mick Mulvaney as the acting head of the agency.

Oh noes, Princess Moonbat Feathers is gonna have a ‘splodey head in 3…. 2…. 1…

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The top lawyer for the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has concluded that President Donald Trump has the authority to name its acting director, three sources familiar with the matter said on Sunday, rejecting an effort by her former boss at the agency to name his immediate successor.

The office of CFPB General Counsel Mary McLeod has prepared a memo concurring with the opinion of the U.S. Justice Department that Trump has the power to appoint his budget chief, Mick Mulvaney, as temporary leader of the federal watchdog agency, according to the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

One source said the memo would be sent to CFPB staff on Monday.

CFPB officials did not respond to requests by email and phone requesting comment.  (read more)






There’s something divine guiding things along.  Look at the name of the CFPB legal counsel, “Mary McLeod”…

Yes, that’s exactly President Trump’s mom’s name.

    I just read the memorandum filed in support of [English’s] claim:

    “Ms. English has a clear legal entitlement to the position of Acting Director of the CFPB” (page 2 I. A.)

    “To allow for the appointment of an Acting Director via an inapplicable general statute would cause harm to the public at large and irreparable injury to the plaintiff in particular (page 10 II.)

    “Ms. Enlgish is legally entitled – and legally required- to perform the duties of the CFPB’s Acting Director. If another person is appointed to that role, her ability to perform these duties will become at best unclear and at worst impossible….Any person who is appointed to the office and contests plaintiff’s entitlement to the office may attempt to resolve the dispute by terminating Ms. English from her employment with the CFPB, which would further cause her irreparable injury” (Page 10 II.)

    I got a running theme of ENTITLEMENT

    These people are unreal. Imagine if a Bush appointee did this to King Kenya, the press would be all over them for subverting his majesty’s power.

    So much for the peaceful transition of power!!

    It’s time to make each political appointee/government worker across every agency an at-will employee.

    Who is this woman’s boss? And how dare she take over a department of our government?
    Try this in any company in America, and you’d be escorted out the door pronto.

    What’s with the Swamp people? Must like public humiliation and unemployment. They just keep asking for it, poor ingrates

    President Trump should resubmit his trademark “You’re Fired” ’cause with all the idiots in Washington DC falling on the sword he’s gonna end up owning the term anyway. Just sayin’

    I hope someone has been looking for alternate “private” email addresses for Ms.English, since it seems like most everyone in Barky’s government was communicating outside of the official system.

    She needs to be fired. The entitlement of these people from the Obama administration knows no bounds. They really really thought they would Never be out of power again. They figured that if an African-American could be elected president that they would never lose power again.

    That’s good news! Would love to see the look on warrens face when she hears this!!!!

      Interesting. So, possibly, the Uniparty / shadow government, being able to monitor banking from this lofty view, might be able to offer carrots and sticks to various banks? And so pre-determine how funny money flows, with no one raising an alarm?
