AG Paxton Leads 14-State Brief Challenging Constitutionality of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
“The CFPB was designed to be a rogue agency and its structure violates the Constitution’s separation of powers,” Attorney General Paxton said. “The CFPB operates like a branch of government unto itself, insulated from Congressional appropriations and presidential authority. Its unlawful structure allows for an unelected and unaccountable director to wield more power than anyone else in the U.S. government, except the president.”
