  1. How does Warren wanting WF shut down fit into the travel world? You twist the logic because they offer credit cards? Or is this your right wing tendency coming out so much you had to post a political story? Be better, stay on subject.

  2. If the Fed has the statutory authority that Senator Warren is implying it does, maybe Wells Fargo should be forced to spin off assets. I can hardly see a good faith argument that their existence serves the public interest.

  3. Gary, Wells Fargo keeps cheating customers and getting fined by the
    Gubmint. Yes, Wells Fargo needs punishment. They can’t be trusted…..

  4. @Ray – how is shutting down a bank *not* relevant? And in any case the topic of this site is and has always been what seems interesting to me at the moment.

  5. You fail to mention that by ‘bad’ you mean convicted or paid fines in lieu of facing trial for multiple felonies.
    If corporations were really “people my friend” Wells Fargo would be in prison for the rest of it’s life.

  6. I don’t think Elaine Chao, Mitch McConnell’s wife, gets enough mentions for her work at Wells Fargo.

    Chao served on the Wells Fargo Board of Directors from 2011 until 2017, a period marked by non-stop scandals, before she resigned to become President Donald Trump’s Transportation Secretary. As a Wells Fargo board member, Chao was responsible for overseeing the ethics and fair corporate practices of the mega bank.

  7. @Ray – You are definitely the first person that I’ve ever seen here accusing Gary of “right wing tendencies.” It’s usually Trumpies calling Gary a libtard. But I suppose it does take a left and right wing to fly…

  8. Warren no Indian.
    Orange man good.
    Wells Fargo bad.
    Break ’em up and impeach Warren 😉
