Mick Mulvaney further asserted his role as Acting Director at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) by taking control of the Twitter channel associated with that position

Mick Mulvaney further asserted his role as Acting Director at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) by taking control of the Twitter channel associated with that position.
 
In his first tweet this afternoon on the Twitter handle @CFPBDirector, Mulvaney posted a photo of himself working over documents at a desk. Mulvaney’s first tweet said, “Busy day at the @CFPB. Digging into the details.”
 
While Mulvaney was at work in his office, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) appeared at a small protest in front of the CFPB’s headquarters.
 
“For six years, this agency has fought for working people,” said Warren. “And now it’s time for us to fight for the agency.”
 
Absent from public view was Leandra English, Richard Cordray’s handpicked appointee for the acting director’s role. However, the attorney representing English in her lawsuit to void the Mulvaney appointment, Deepak Gupta, admitted on CNBC today that English was not financing her own litigation, but he repeatedly declined to identify who was paying her legal fees.
 
“I don’t think it’s appropriate for me to be talking about that on TV right now,” he said, adding that he was not representing English on a pro bono basis.
