Senate Republicans Seek Greater Oversight Over Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

Senate Republicans are seeking greater congressional authority over the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) with new legislation out Wednesday to reroute its mechanism for funding.

Attorney Brian Della Rocca’s sentiment is understandable. Since the New York Post first broke news of the MacBook abandoned at John Paul Mac Isaac’s computer repair store, the veracity of the documents has been confirmed many times and neither of the Bidens have denied the authenticity of the documents.
