According to a Politico report, the House Financial Services Committee’s Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations voted yesterday to issue three subpoenas in connection with the Subcommittee’s investigation into alleged CFPB employee discrimination. 

The subpoenas were issued to Stacey Bach, Assistant Director of the CFPB’s Office of Equal Employment  Opportunity, Liza Strong, the CFPB’s Director of Employee Relations, and Ben Konop, Executive Vice President of the National Treasury Employee Union’s Chapter 335. 

According to the report, Representative Patrick McHenry, the Subcommittee Chair, indicated that the three individuals all expressed a preference to be subpoenaed to avoid voluntary testimony.
