"White House looks to extend Mulvaney's CFPB tenure" by Kate Berry.


Charles Gabriel was quoted in Kate Berry's American Banker article, "White House looks to extend Mulvaney's CFPB tenure," published on May 8th, 2018.

The article reads:

"The Democratic resistance to Mulvaney makes for softer deadlines because at some point the Democrats might have to consider a Republican nominee just to replace Mulvaney," said Charles Gabriel, the president of Capital Alpha Partners, an independent research firm.

Yet Gabriel added that the apparent White House strategy has risks. If the White House fails to name a permanent director by the June deadline, it could face a legal challenge to Mulvaney's appointment. Meanwhile, if a permanent director is nominated but not confirmed by the end of the year, and the Senate changes hands in a Democratic wave in the midterm elections, it is unclear how the administration would proceed.

"If they want to keep Mulvaney there, the best thing to do is to nominate a permanent director before the end of June, but they have to move somebody who they could confirm before November because the Democrats could freeze the nomination," Gabriel said.

"Clock  running out to get housing finance reform moving" by Ian McKendry.


Charles Gabriel was quoted in Ian McKendry's American Banker article, "Clock  running out to get housing finance reform moving," published on February 2nd, 2018. 

The article reads:

“With the Senate’s agenda likely to fill up with efforts to pass a banking deregulation bill during the first quarter, and perhaps an infrastructure package thereafter— and with election year ‘rigor mortis’ already setting in — housing finance reformers need to establish momentum quickly to have even a prayer of making it into the queue for floor action,” said Chuck Gabriel, an analyst for Capital Alpha, in a note to clients this week.
