Now that Elizabeth Warren is no longer in control of the CFPB, she is demanding answers from CFPB Trump appointee Mick Mulvaney. Yet because of rules put in place by Warren and Democrats, Mulvaney doesn’t have to answer any of her questions and he reminded her of this.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Mick Mulvaney says it’s Elizabeth Warren’s own fault he doesn’t have to answer her questions
Acting Consumer Financial Protection Bureau director Mick Mulvaney has told Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., that he doesn’t plan on responding to her questions about the agency, and said it’s her fault that he is not required to answer.
Mulvaney, a conservative who was an outspoken critic of the bureau during his time as a congressman, told Warren in a letter sent Wednesday that the structure of the agency, which she helped design, shields him from accountability.
“I encourage you to consider the possibility that the frustration you are experiencing now, and that which I had a few years back, are both inevitable consequences of the fact that the Dodd-Frank… Act insulates the Bureau from virtually any accountability to the American people through their elected representatives,” Mulvaney wrote.
Isn’t it fascinating that Warren had no problem with this lack of accountability when Democrats were in charge?
