Pretend director Leandra English gives up her jihad leaving Elizabeth Warren defeated.

I’ve written about the unconstitutional structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau before. Despite a court ruling, Leandra English had continued her fight to make herself director of the CFPB. Her announcement that she’s giving up leaves Elizabeth Warren defeated by Donald Trump.
