White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney fired the entire advisory board of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on Wednesday, in the latest move by the Trump administration to render the agency toothless. This comes after Mulvaney, who serves as acting director of the consumer watchdog, requested $0 in funding for the CFPB earlier this year. As a Republican congressmember from South Carolina, Mulvaney repeatedly voted in favor of bills that would have eliminated the bureau.
