Trump's pick to head bank regulator withdraws

WASHINGTON, July 12 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump’s pick to head a bank regulator has withdrawn his name from consideration.

A White House spokesperson confirmed Wednesday that James Clinger has asked to be removed as the president’s pick to head the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Clinger, a longtime Republican staff member of the House Financial Services Committee, was just nominated for the post in June.
