"Remember @equifax breach? Data stolen from millions of consumers? The former consumer watchdog @RichCordray opened a probe. It has withered under the current @CFPBDirector chief."
The chairman of the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee said on Tuesday he plans to hold a hearing later this month over massive data breaches at Equifax Inc and Yahoo, which is now owned by Verizon Communications Inc.
U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren said on Friday she has begun an investigation into Equifax's massive data breach, and along with 11 other Democratic senators, introduced a bill to allow consumers to freeze their credit for free.
