Trump victory over Obama holdovers at the CFPB who are alleged to have conned banks into funding ant-Trump organizations
When two of the biggest swamp dwellers in Washington pushed through the corrupt Dodd-Frank Banking Reform Act back in 2010, one of the by-products of this egregious legislation was in the creation of theÂ Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.Â And with prior Obama era holdovers actually suing the Trump administration for replacing them in offices they felt ‘entitled’ to have, a judge laid down the law on Nov. 28 by saying the President can appoint anyone he feels to run the quasi-governmental office.
As Bloomberg reports, Trump’s budget directorÂ Mick MulvaneyÂ can remain as temporary head of the agency, a federalÂ judge ruled in rejecting a request to block the move from Leandra English, who was named to the role by the departing director.

But while this ruling was indeed a victory for President Trump, it appears to be only the tip of the iceberg as the office originally setup by progressives under Barack Obama was coercing and conning banks into funding progressive community organizations which in turn were using that money to try to affect the 2016 election under anti-Trump campaigns.
The Washington-based group boasts more than 600 member organizations who lobby lawmakers through list-serves, mailings, sign-on letters and conference calls. Though itâ€™s assumed that funds distributed to such â€śqualified organizationsâ€ť will be used for housing assistance, the bank-settlement agreements do not enforce how the funds are spent.
â€śIt stands to reason that some of the settlement funds have helped bankroll the resistanceâ€ť bent on stopping the Trump agenda for America, Competitive Enterprise Institute senior fellow John Berlau said.
Itâ€™s not clear how much money, in all, has been diverted from settlement funds to these and other left-wing organizations. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered a full audit of the funds while discontinuing the practice of funneling Justice Department settlements to third-party groups.
â€śAny settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people [through the US Treasury] â€” not to bankroll third-party special interest groups or the political friends of whoever is in power,â€ť Sessions said in a recent statement.
Still, The Post has learned that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau continues to force financial institutions it prosecutes to donate to third-party community organizers. More, penalties in such cases are deposited into the Bureauâ€™s now-$170 million-plus Civil Penalty Fund, which has, in turn, channeled almost $30 million to â€śconsumer advocacyâ€ť groups. –Â NY Post
Almost a year into his first term in office, President Trump is still dealing with the repercussions of the most corrupt President administrations in history following Barack Obama’s eight years in office.Â And hopefully today’s ruling may be the beginning of the end for the CFPB, and the multitude of swamp dwellers who were using the office to con financial institutions into funding private Democratic organizations.
