Richard Cordray Dodges When Asked If He Will Complete His CFPB Term

CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla seemed to have to hold back laughter at Cordray’s dodge.

The director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Richard Cordray, dodged when asked if he would complete his term at the CFPB during an interview on Wednesday.

CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla asked Cordray whether he would fill out his term at the CFPB, pointing out that many have asked Cordray this question in the past to no avail.

“I can’t speak to that while I’m in my current position, as you know, and I will just stick to my no comment, thank you,” Cordray responded.

Quintanilla seemed to hold back laughter at Cordray’s response.

Cordray has been rumored for months as a possible Democratic candidate for governor in Ohio, causing some to question whether Cordray is simply using his role at the CFPB to elevate his political profile.
