The Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division is likely to sue to block the proposed merger between AT&T and Time Warner. The move raises questions, given allegations that President Trump sought to force the divestiture of CNN in the merger due to his distaste for its coverage (The Hill, NYTimes, WSJ, WaPo).
President Trump is expected to name Mick Mulvaney, current head of the White House Office of Management and Budget, to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)(LATimes).
Wednesday, the CFPB will remove the agency’s final arbitration rule from the Code of Federal Regulations (Consumer Finance Monitor).
