Apparently there's a billionaire’s war occurring against the President of the United States of America and its happening behind closed door.
According to new reports there are high level yet anonymous donors who are financing the lawsuit against the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, and White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney over who runs the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; a controversial decision made recently.
The leading lawyer of the firm which has brought forth the suit, Deepak Gupta, on behalf of CFPB acting director Leandra English, confirmed in a<a href="https://www.cnbc.com/video/2017/11/28/leandra-english-not-funding-lawsuit-against-trump-administration-lawyer.html"> CNBC interview </a>that English isn't even paying for the attorney hourly fees at all, and instead some random anonymous donor is.
“The President’s purported or intended appointment of defendant Mulvaney as Acting Director of the CFPB is unlawful,” the lawsuit says.
Deepak Gupta refused to name the wealthy investor who is privately funding the lawsuit, bringing into question the motives behind what's likely a Democratic Marxist effort to further subvert the Presidency.
This was beyond apparent during the interview as Gupta continued to eat his own words, stumbling, not sure of how to answer the questions given to him.
“Well, uh, it’s, it’s not, um, Miss, um English, um, ah. There are ethics lawyers that we’ve consulted, and we have a structure set up that is with ethics rules and, um, we’ll and we’ll be talking about that once we have that,” he told CNBC.
Despite the failures of Gupta to answer, CNBC continued to demand the truth, while he answered, “It’s just not appropriate for me to be talking about that right now.”
CNBC’s host also proceeded to ask Gupta if his firm is handling the case pro bono to which he replied, “No. We’re not.”
“The talented and hard-working CFPB staff stand up for consumers every day. As Acting Director, I am filing this lawsuit to stand up for the CFPB,” English said in a statement.
The CFPB’s own general counsel, Mary E. McLeod, has said that she's taking the side of the White House in the dispute, according to the<a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/business/wp/2017/11/26/who-is-leandra-english-the-woman-at-the-center-of-a-white-house-battle-for-control-of-the-cfpb/"> Washington Post</a>.
“I advise all Bureau personnel to act consistently with the understanding that Director Mulvaney is the Acting Director of the CFPB,” she told her employees.
The White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said in a statement that the White House was well aware of the lawsuit, but that the law is clear and that Mulvaney is the CFPB’s acting director.
“It is unfortunate that Mr. Cordray decided to put his political ambition above the interests of consumers with this stunt,” Sanders said. “Director Mulvaney will bring a more serious and professional approach to running the CFPB.”
The battle is cresting shockwave, as I've previously said, due to this being an obvious effort by the left and their ultra powerful donors to intervene in the Trump Administration’s efforts.
