Financial reform advocates are concerned the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is losing its autonomy.
A recent tweet from President Donald Trump is worrying some people about the independence of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
The issue started on Thursday, when Reuters reported that the head of the CFPB was reviewing the penalties for Wells Fargo's alleged lending abuse. Trump tweeted on Friday that the fines and penalties wouldn't be dropped, but legal experts say the president doesn't have the authority to weigh in.

A group of financial reform advocates, who have filed a lawsuit to block Mulvaney's appointment, said Trump's tweets make it clear the White House wants to intervene in the agency's business.
