Leandra English, who sued Trump, to resign from CFPB

NEW YORK (AP) — Leandra English, who sued President Donald Trump for control of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as deputy director of the bureau, is planning to resign early next week.

English was one of the last Obama administration holdovers left at the bureau, and was appointed deputy director of the bureau after Richard Cordray, the previous permanent director, resigned.

Corday installed English as his intended successor, but President Trump appointed Mick Mulvaney as acting director of the bureau. English unsuccessfully sued to block Mulvaney's appointment, and since Mulvaney took over, she largely was sidelined by the current administration.

English said she plans to drop her lawsuit against the White House as well, citing the fact that President Trump nominated last month Kathy Kraninger to be the next permanent director for the bureau.
