Temporary restraining order to stop Trump’s pick for CFPB is denied
In a victory for the Trump White House, a temporary restraining order to halt the president’s pick for acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFBP), Mick Mulvaney, was denied by a judge late Tuesday though the decision is likely to be appealed.
U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly ruled in favor of Trump in his effort to appoint White House budget director Mulvaney to lead the bureau, the nation’s top financial watchdog agency.
“Denying the president’s authority to appoint Mr. Mulvaney raises significant constitutional questions,” Kelly, a Trump nominee for the bench, said.
The ruling comes after a nasty partisan spat that pitted the Trump administration against an Obama-era holdout to lead the bureau.
Leandra English was elevated to acting deputy director Friday when Richard Cordray resigned. The fight over who would lead the bureau bled into the weekend and on Sunday, English filed an emergency restraining order to keep Mulvaney from taking control.
Former CFPB litigation counsel Deepak Gupta, who represented English, said the career civil servant would weigh her next step but added he didn’t think Kelly’s ruling was “the final stop for this case.”
Earlier Tuesday, Mulvaney instructed staff to “disregard” instructions from English and then tweeted a picture of himself working at a desk under the handle @CFPBDirector.
He also sent out an email reminding people to ignore any direction from English.
“Consistent with my email from yesterday, please disregard any email sent by, or instructions you receive from, Ms. English when she is purporting to act as the Acting Director,” Mulvaney wrote in an email Tuesday. “I apologize for having to send this instruction again. And I feel terrible about you folks being put in this position, as I understand it can be both confusing and disruptive.”
