Wells Fargo CEO to Issue Apology

Wells Fargo CEO to Issue Apology

The bank also charged hundreds of thousands of car-loan customers for unnecessary auto insurance, and allegedly modified mortgage terms without borrowers' knowledge or consent.

Held roughly a year after the discovery that Wells Fargo staffers had created millions of fraudulent accounts to boost their own performance, the hearing gave senators on both sides of the aisle a chance to blast the bank, and its leadership, for repeatedly failing customers. Democratic Senator Brian Schatz of Hawaii said to Sloan's response to a question on why the bank's charter shouldn't be revoked. Republican Sen. John Neely Kennedy asked Sloan. We hear you say, 'We don't know!

As is now Senate Banking Committee tradition, a cold breeze swept through the chamber as Crapo looked down at his notes and an anticipatory silence gripped the room. It also played beautifully against Sloan's freaky lack of preparation and sniveling attempts at painting himself as a victim of persecution.

You may recall the prominent role Sen. More interesting news about Wells Fargo & Co (NYSE:WFC) were released by: and their article: "Wells Fargo's CEO Will Tell Lawmakers of Dramatic Transformation" published on October 02, 2017 as well as's news article titled: "Senators grill Wells Fargo CEO over scandal, forced arbitration" with publication date: October 03, 2017.

"We need to see a cultural change", Heitkamp said. Mn Services Vermogensbeheer B.V.'s holdings in Wells Fargo & were worth $43,154,000 at the end of the most recent reporting period. I'm a very proud shareholder.

Spared from all Warren's wrath are the actual perpetrators of the wrongdoing. Zacks Investment Research raised shares of Wells Fargo & from a "sell" rating to a "hold" rating in a report on Monday, July 10th.

"You enabled this fake account scam, you got rich off of it, and then you tried to cover it up", said Sen.

Wells Fargo is also still under several investigations for its sales practices problems, including a congressional inquiry and one by the Justice Department. But Warren said every board member who served during that time should be removed. "Why should we believe that you're committed to changing your bank's practices and being fair to customers when you continue to use that behind-closed-doors arbitration system that clearly doesn't allow customers their day in court?" he said. At best, you are incompetent. Any way you dice it, a dip below $54.58 a share would be very bad news for WFC's technical picture in the near-term. "And either way you should be fired", she added.

"I apologize for the damage done to all the people who work and bank at this important American institution", he said. "Thank you, Mr. Chairman".

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA, a vocal critic of Wells Fargo, called for Sloan's firing.

Crapo pointed out that since Stumpf promised that the bank would do better, it has been rocked by scandal after scandal. Elizabeth WarrenElizabeth Ann WarrenSenate Dems hold floor talk-a-thon against latest ObamaCare repeal bill Trump bets base will stick with him on immigration Dems call for action against Cassidy-Graham ObamaCare repeal MORE (D-Mass.), a rumored 2020 presidential candidate. Essentially, Tim Sloan walked into a bear cave fully prepared to fucking cuddle.

One analyst said Sloan's opening statement will not go far enough to appease lawmakers angry over the scandal. "That is because we have spent the past year determined to earn back the public's trust".

Duke, a former Fed governor, is set to take over from Wells Fargo Chairman Stephen Sanger at the start of 2018.
