The Latest: Thune Expects Mulvaney To Run Consumer Agency

WASHINGTON (AP)

The Senate’s third-ranking Republican leader says that come Monday, he expects that President Donald Trump’s pick to temporarily head a consumer protection agency will be on the job.

But the agency’s outgoing director has appointed a short-term successor.

It all could wind up in court — as Sen. John Thune of South Dakota says.

Trump’s pick is his budget chief, Mick Mulvaney — who’s long criticized the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as an example of bureaucracy run amok.

Thune tells “Fox News Sunday” that he expects Mulvaney will be on the job Monday and “calling the shots over there.”
