The Washington Examiner reports that Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., will investigate whether  a letter to the House Financial Services subcommittee constituted interference with congressional oversight or an attempt to intimidate future witnesses appearing before the panel. The letter that sparked the investigation came from John Dowd, a criminal defense lawyer representing Liza Strong, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s employment services chief and requested that a whistleblower’s testimony be stricken from the record.

Ali Naraghi, the CFPB whistleblower in question, delivered his opening statement despite Dowd’s objection. The whistleblower currently is an examiner in CFPB’s southeast region.
