Senate Must Reject Kraninger Nomination

Statement from Lisa Donner, executive director of Americans for Financial Reform:

Kathy Kraninger has put no daylight whatsoever between herself and Mick Mulvaney, who has done his level best to dismantle from within an agency that once won real results for American families hurt by Wall Street and predatory lenders. He has subverted, not advanced, the mission of consumer protection for which Congress created the CFPB. Kraninger has promised to continue Mulvaney’s destructive course. Kraninger has no track record at all of consumer protection, or of standing up for vulnerable people. To the contrary,  at OMB she has played a role in the appalling and immoral family separation policy. Senators must reject Kathy Kraninger’s nomination.
