WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Thursday, the Banking Committee is scheduled to meet to vote on several nominees, including Kathleen Kraninger for CFPB Director. Ms. Kraninger has no background in consumer protection or financial issues, she has not responded to several document requests from committee Democrats, and was evasive in her answers to questions at her confirmation hearing.

Below is a link to a short video from Ms. Kraninger’s confirmation hearing highlighting her frustrating non-answers to committee members as well as Ms. Kraninger’s responses to three sets of Questions for the Record:
