Feds Pull Back From Full Scale Equifax Probe…. WTF?

Reuters is reporting that the new head of the CFPB (aka: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau) is pulling back from a full-scale probe of how Equifax failed to protect consumer data in its breach affecting 145.5 million Americans.

This is the dumbest thing I have ever seen. About half the American population gets affected by the most epic pwnage the world has ever seen and the US Government doesn’t want to step in and protect their citizens? That’s just mind blowing.
