Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown was a critic of Mick Mulvaney even before President Trump made him interim head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This week -- after Mulvaney advised bankers on how to lobby to cut the funding stream for the agency -- Brown added a call for Mulvaney’s resignation. Now, as WKSU’s M.L. Schultze reports, Brown is pushing to learn who else Mulvaney has been meeting with.

The first head of the national Consumer Financial Protection Bureau says he’s concerned about the shift in direction for the agency. 

The CFPB was created in 2011, after the recession, to give consumers more protections. But former head Rich Cordray says the entire focus has changed under President Trump and the Republicans.

The former head of the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau returned to Ohio on Thursday to discuss his bid for governor.

At the City Club of Cleveland, Richard Cordray said couldn’t jump into the race earlier because he wanted to complete two major regulations at the CFPB first: rules on arbitration and on payday lending.
