President Joe Biden promised to not let politics get in the way of political appointees and staffing within federal agencies, but that is not what is happening.
In fact, Biden is tossing career employees to the curb (even ones that voted for him!) simply because he needs to repay activists with some quid pro quo.
However, Biden’s little scheme is coming into the light. “Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) has asked President Joe Biden to turn over documents in an effort to determine if the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is replacing career senior officials with hand-picked activists, as Biden promised to be nonpolitical with the agency,” according to Breitbart News.
Via to a letter from Toomey:
According to press reports, the political leadership of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) under the Biden administration has been taking unusual and possibly unlawful actions to push out top-level career civil servants at the CFPB in order to fill those civil service positions with hand-picked loyalists.
Such actions reportedly include offering employees extraordinary separation incentives to leave their posts and placing employees on administrative leave after opening up frivolous investigations against them—allegations that, if true, may violate employment and other laws. Moreover, the CFPB notably declined to deny any of the detailed allegations in the report.
