Buckley Sandler Special Alert: CFPB director Cordray resigns, attempts to name successor
Buckley Special Alert
Today, CFPB Director Richard Cordray named the agency’s chief of staff, Leandra English, as the bureau’s deputy director, and submitted his resignation to President Trump. The moves follow media reports that President Trump planned to appoint OMB Director Mick Mulvaney as the acting director of the CFPB under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act and may signal a confrontation between current bureau leadership and the White House over succession at the agency.
