The Intercept: Wall Street Wants to Kill the Agency Protecting Americans From Financial Scams

The CFPB has emerged as that rare beast — a fast-moving agency that actually chalks up wins for average Americans. Industry’s answer has been a multimillion dollar, multi-front battle to discredit and defang the bureau, a war declared even before the enemy officially existed. Attacking the CFPB has become a growth industry in Washington. Hyperbolic, relentless, often scorchingly personal — it’s a campaign that more often than not resembles a street fight. Now the agency is vulnerable and soon to be in the hands of a Trump appointee.

“We must all hope now, that Congress and the President appoint somebody equal to or even better than Director Cordray.
