The bureaucracy already runs much of the government. It wields more power than elected officials. Yet it does so, in theory, at the behest of elected officials. The battle over who heads the CFPB pushes that theory out the window.
If Richard Cordray is able to overrule the President of the United States and appoint a successor of his own choosing, then we take one step closer to abandoning rule by the people and replacing it with the rule of the bureaucracy,
That is what is at stake here. And it's bigger than the CFPB.
And so we have the bizarre situation in which there is a debate over who is running the CFPB, Richard Cordray's chosen replacement or President Trump's appointee. It's a literal civil war between the top elected official in the country and a powerful member of the bureaucracy.
True to form, the bureaucracy wants it settled in the courts. And these days it's easy enough to find an Obama or Clinton judge willing to rule that 2 + 2 = 5 and that the president is utterly powerless when a Republican and completely omnipotent when a Dem.
But this is another shot in a civil war. And that civil war is about who runs America.
