Mulvaney: I Only Talked To Lobbyists Who Donated To My Congressional Campaign

Acting CFPB chief mulls taking down public complaint database

During the industry event, Mulvaney had also said that "We are going to do what the law says, but not what the law doesn't say". Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) has called for the resignation of Mick Mulvaney, Acting Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

Mulvaney admitted Tuesday that, as a congressman, he only gave meetings to lobbyists who donated to his campaign. On Tuesday, he admitted that, as a Congressman, he only met with lobbyists who gave him money - almost 90% of which come from banks and other businesses.

Now the acting interim director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and director of the Office of Management and Budget, Mulvaney used to be a Republican congressman from SC. "If you're a lobbyist who gave us money, I might talk to you".

"I'm trying to get in the habit of now saying the 'B.C.F.P.' It's really, really hard to do that when you've said the C.F.P.B. for so long", Mr. Mulvaney told the bankers.

Brown, the top Senate Democrat overseeing the CFPB and a fierce critic of Mulvaney, said his comments reflect "the kind of "pay to play" that understandably makes Americans furious with Washington, DC". "And you have to continue to do it'". "I would have the Federal Bureau of Investigation look at his decision-making right up to the present, correlate it with lobbyist campaign contributions, and then go talk to him". "It's more important than lobbyists and it's more important than money".
