Dems Demand Delay of Kraninger CFPB Confirmation Hearing

The Senate Banking Committee has announced that its confirmation vote for Kathy Kranginer to become the next director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has been rescheduled for Aug. 23

Democrat members of the Senate Banking Committee are demanding that Sen. Mike Crapo (R-ID), the chairman of the committee, postpone tomorrow’s confirmation hearing for Kathy Kraninger, President Trump’s nominee to become the next Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
 
In a private letter sent Tuesday night that was obtained and reprinted in The Hill, the committee’s Democrats claimed that the administration did not respond to their requests for documents and information regarding the role Kraninger may have played in formulating the policy on separating illegal immigrant families at the Texas border and arranging for assistance to Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. Kraninger is Program Associate Director for General Government Programs in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and two senators, Ohio’s Sherrod Brown and Massachusetts’ Elizabeth Warren, claimed that she manages seven executive branch agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice.
 
“If the Administration is unwilling or unable to provide responsive information in a timely manner, we respectfully ask that you postpone Thursday’s hearing on any nominee with outstanding information requests until such time as the information is available,” the Democrats wrote to Crapo.
 
A spokesperson for Crapo stated that the hearing is still scheduled for Thursday.
