Consider Yourself Briefed

Today’s scheduled hearing, before House Oversight subcommittee on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the agency created by the Wall Street Reform law, deteriorated in shocking fashion as Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) all but called Hon. Elizabeth Warren a liar during the hearing.  The argument centered around an agreement to allow Hon. Warren to leave the hearing in time to fulfill another meeting obligation. Hon. Warren handled the situation with aplomb and was defended by Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-NY), but the conversation shows the strain (and ridiculous tactics) of the Republican’s fight to destroy the CFPB.
