Melissa Stegman, senior policy counsel on the federal policy team of Center for Responsible Lending, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization based in Washington, D.C., said she thinks legislative action to get rid of the CFPB is “extremely unlikely. My impression is that there isn’t even much of an appetite to do that legislatively, because Mulvaney is already doing it through the administrative process,” she said. “They don’t even really need to purse anything externally. It’s like a self-sabotage as opposed to having the sabotage coming from the Congress.”
