Chaos continues for double appointment in the US Consumer Office.

The US Office of Consumer Financial Protection (CFPB) another by the outgoing head of the entity, they claimed to be in charge.

Washington, November 27 (EFE) .- The US Office of Consumer Financial Protection (CFPB). of the country, Donald Trump, and another by the outgoing head of the entity, claimed to be in charge.

The two acting directors, Mick Mulvaney, appointed by Trump, and Leandra English, appointed by the outgoing boss, said to be in charge of the CFPB in internal emails sent to the 1,600 employees of the Office.

"I hope that everyone has had a fantastic (day of) Thanksgiving. the words "interim director".

Shortly after, Mulvaney answered with another email, in which he asked all employees to ignore English's orders.

"I have been able to know that Mrs. English has communicated with many of you this morning by email in an attempt to exercise certain interim director duties. Today's atmosphere is probably not unexpected, "Mulvaney said.

" Please ignore any instruction you receive from Mrs. English in her supposed capacity as principal interim, "he added.

Finally, Mulvaney said he is" looking forward "to working with CFPB employees and invited them to go to the fourth floor, where the offices of the address, to take a donut.

Mulvaney, precisely, appeared today in the early hours of the morning in the Office of Consumer Financial Protection with a cardboard bag full of donuts, as local television showed.

The CFPB, an independent agency created from the financial reform promulgated by the previous president, Barack Obama, has been accused by Trump and the Republicans in Congress to have excessive power and to restrain the financial sector with a heavy regulatory burden.

This Friday, the first and only director of the CFPB, Democrat Richard Cordray, announced that he was leaving office immediately instead of at the end of the month, as he had anticipated, and promoted his chief of staff, Leandra English, to deputy director of the agency.

The Dodd-Frank Act of 2010, the basis of Obama's financial reform, stipulates that the deputy director of the CFPB act as interim head of the entity until the President designates a person to occupy the position permanently and the Senate will confirm it.

But Trump, in a statement late on Friday, appointed the current head of the White House Budget Office, Mulvaney, to serve as interim director of the CFPB.

Mulvaney has openly criticized the CFPB, and Democrats argue that Trump seeks clearly with this appointment to remove power and independence to the entity.

During the weekend, the White House has defended the legal authority of Trump to appoint a director interim for the CFPB, covered by the Federal Vacancies Act of 1998, until the Senate confirms a new boss.

Faced with this, English filed a lawsuit on Sunday night before the Court of the District of Columbia, in which it requests that the appointment of Mulvaney be blocked and that the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act be found to be above the Federal Vacancy Act of 1998 that Trump used for his appointment.

The Court of the District of Columbia has not yet ruled on that claim.

The CFPB was created to increase the supervision of the entities in mortgages and credit cards, among other financial products, and to protect consumers after the abuses prior to the outbreak of the 2008 economic crisis.
