On Monday morning, two rival bosses showed up for work at the government’s leading customer economic watchdog — 1 a holdover from the Obama administration, the other a rushed short-term appointee by President Trump.
We look at the messy public fight for manage of the Customer Monetary Protection Bureau.
On today’s episode:
• Gary Rivlin, a former New York Occasions reporter, is an Investigative Fund fellow at the Nation Institute. He has been reporting on the bureau since its creation in 2010.
• The future of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as an independent agency rests on who leads it next.
• How long can a progressive federal agency stand firm against the deregulatory pressures of the Trump administration?
• Wall Street has waged a multi-million-dollar, multi-front battle to discredit and defang the bureau, which is extremely common with average Americans.
