Mulvaney Named White House Acting Chief of Staff

On Friday, President Donald Trump announced that Mick Mulvaney will serve as the White House Acting Chief of Staff, replacing John Kelly. This announcement came within a week of Mulvaney stepping away from his role as Acting Director of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (BCFP or Bureau) after the Bureau’s new permanent director was confirmed.

Mulvaney served as the Bureau's Acting Director for a little over a year following the resignation of Former Director Richard Cordray in November 2017. Cordray ran for governor of Ohio following his departure, but was not elected. On December 6, 2018, the Senate confirmed Kathy Kraninger as the new Director of the Bureau and was sworn into the role on the following Monday.
