“That these anti-capitalist agendas are influencing the CFPB is especially troubling, because the CFPB lacks any form of accountability to American voters through Congress,” John Berlau, senior fellow for finance and access to capital at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told the Washington Free Beacon in an email.
