FreedomWorks: The Left Backs Imposter Leandra English at CFPB

FreedomWorks Vice President of Advocacy Noah Wall released the following statement regarding the Left’s Support for Imposter Leandra English at the Center Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

When Richard Cordray left the CFPB, two people were saying they were the Acting Director: Leandra English who was not the Acting Director, and Mick Mulvaney, whom President Trump appointed to lead the agency.

“Liberals are further confirming they either do not understand or do not abide by the Constitution or November’s election results.

“The CFPB is part of the executive branch, and President Trump is the head of the executive branch. He gets to appoint new leaders of executive agencies.

“Liberals are supporting Leandra English, herself an Obama appointee. They want an Obama appointee, Cordray, to be able to appoint another Obama appointee.

“Reminder to all the liberals: Donald Trump is the president.”

While the CFPB is an independent federal agency, that designation lends protections to the directors against being fired by the president. The ability to fill vacancies at this level still belongs to the president.
