VIVA LA CFPB: Disgruntled Staffers Form A Resistance Movement Within The Agency, Using Encrypted Devices

Matt Vespa

EXCERPT:

What is going on at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau? It’s a clown show, or it’s rapidly becoming one. Richard Cordray, the former director of the agency, resigned at the end of November. There’s speculation that he’s mulling a gubernatorial bid in Ohio. Alas, comes the showdown. President Trump tapped Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney to run the agency, whereas Cordray had selected Leandra English, his deputy, to take the reins. The fact is the president has the power to appoint a new director, but as Guy noted, liberals saw the CFPB, the temple of of Liz Warren, as so extraordinarily independent that the law doesn’t matter. An interagency war occurred with English signing off emails as acting director, with Mulvaney sending emails of his own instructing staff to disregard English while inviting the rest of the staff up for donuts. It was an attempted coup, folks. And English filed a lawsuit to effectively block Mulvaney from taking over as acting director; a judge ruled in the Trump administration’s favor on that one. Mulvaney is the acting director, though the lawsuit is still ongoing.

<snip>

Well, in the interim, we have angry CFPB staffers forming “Dumbledore’s Army,” which is fitting since the only books liberals seem to know or read are Harry Potter and The Handmaiden’s Tale. Very fitting actually since both are works of fiction, though the Left sees eerily parallels between these books’ universes and ours. Yeah, I think it’s a load of crap too, but they’re calling themselves that—and they’re using encrypted devices to communicate. It’s a mini-resistance movement within the agency. I mean I can see why they’re mad; Mulvaney is rolling back the CFPB. Alas, elections have consequences don’t they (via NYT) [emphasis mine]:

So Fire them all. Operating against the department is illegal. You are breaking your oath of office as long as the orders are lawful.

Can you imagine the caterwauling that would have resulted if this had taken place in, oh, I don't know, 2009?

Encrypted messages? I wonder how that would play out if someone were to file an FOIA against the CFPB. Which is nothing more than a Democrat shakedown racquet. That Leandra English was issuing orders with no authority and that underlings chose to follow them is grounds for termination possibly prosecution. Trump is right to cut this weed before its roots tangle deeper into the swamp.

Hell, the White House is still trying to recover the fine China and silverware from 2001.
