EXCLUSIVE: CFPB’s Leandra English Is A Pupil of Elizabeth Warren

Leandra English, the new acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau appointed by outgoing director Richard Cordray over the Thanksgiving weekend, has filled a key role during many of the crises that have gripped the six-year agency, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation.

English was a key aide during the agency’s first, formative year in office, and she helped set up the agency with now-Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren as part of the Department of the Treasury’s “implementation team” that formed the bureau.

She also saw a rapid rise within the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), holding such key posts as deputy chief of staff, acting chief of staff, deputy chief operating officer and finally, as announced by Cordray last week, new acting director of the agency.

Cordray’s appointment of English appears to be an attempt to circumvent President Donald Trump’s authority to appoint the head of the CFPB.

Emails obtained by the conservative group Judicial Watch show English established meetings without any notification to the public and meetings that specifically barred press.

The Judicial Watch emails also show English was active in arranging private meetings with special interests that were largely liberal and progressive activist groups.
