A group of more than 30 senators has sent a letter to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau about its investigation of the Equifax breach, The Hill reports. The letter comes after reports stated the agency was pulling back on its investigation of the cyberattack, and a similar request was made by U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. The senators listed several questions directed to the CFPB, including whether the investigation has been halted and what steps the agency has currently taken. “The CFPB has a statutory mandate to participate in this process by conducting an investigation,” the senators wrote. “If that investigation exposes wrongdoing or consumer harm, the CFPB has the authority, and indeed a duty, to bring appropriate enforcement actions.”
