Sen. Lee statement on CFPB replacement

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) released the following statement today regarding the current leadership dispute at the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau:

“While created with the best of intentions, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is a poorly designed, unaccountable, and ultimately unconstitutional agency. This latest controversy isn’t about President Trump or consumer protection. It is about the protection of individual liberty embedded into the United States Constitution through the separation of powers. The duly elected President of the United States has chosen Mick Mulvaney to be the Acting Director of the CFPB and anyone else who claims they have that title is acting illegally.”
