Fire CFPB director? Cordray responds to calls for his head


But despite this rapidly growing controversy, Cordray appears to be conducting business as usual.

In a short and brief comment to CNBC’S Ylan Mui on Wednesday on his way to Capitol Hill, Cordray said, “I’m just focused on doing my job, which is protecting consumers. The rest of it is above my pay grade.”

Cordray made similar comments to these back at the end of January in an interview with The Wall Street Journal at a financial regulation event.

“It’s important to keep in mind that we are a law enforcement agency,” Cordray said in the interview. “That’s an important part of what we do, and it…has to be kept separate from partisan politics.”
