    Article has more...


    And, no, he's not comparing the size of Trump's hands with his own...

    I wonder what "bad things" are defined, as claimed in the subheadline? Are "bad things" universal or relative, like those morals and ethics thingies?

    He's going to just keep denying that he has any accountability.

    A fish rots from the head. 5000+ people did not come up with this idea on their own simultaneously. It was coordinated from someone somewhere.

    "Last year, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the Wells Fargo Foundation had given between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation. The Huffington Post adds:

    Wells Fargo, both the bank and its foundation, have given generously to the Clinton Foundation over the years. The bank has given between $10,001 and $25,000, and the foundation has given between $100,001 To $250,000. In 2011, former President Bill Clinton gave a speech to Wells Fargo for $200,000.

    “This is classic Hillary Clinton: publicly criticizing a company because it’s good politics while the Clinton Foundation quietly accepts hundreds of thousands of dollars from that same company,” said Jeff Bechdel, communications director of the conservative America Rising PAC. “If Clinton truly meant what she wrote, her letter would have been accompanied by a check from her family foundation returning the money from the company she is hypocritically complaining about.”

    Thus far, there is no indication that the Clintons intend to return the money to Wells Fargo."

    Nothing to see here.

    This is why I use credit unions. Not to mention, the service is 1000 times better.

    I agree. The money should be returned. I wonder if they have ever donated to Trump? I would be very interested in finding out. Playing around with others money, inflating their stock price, feather the CEO nest egg ...sounds like Trump's M.O.

    Obama didn't prosecute a single Wall Street pirate responsible for the 2008 financial meltdown. With Hillary next in the chute, this guy knows he is scot-free.

    $260,000 for a twenty-minute speech, already worth the investment.

    Funny Trump is mentioned in an article with Hillary's bed fellow in the leading role. They've already paid her off so this status quo can continue.

    Executive branch is the one that enforces the laws, surely something that congress passed is applicable to defrauding 300+ million Americans. All he had to do is tell his AG to gather them up.

    I listened to the entire hearing, several Senators are very clearly trying to get this ******* criminally investigated. Lays off an entire 1% of the workforce in a certain region along with it's manager for fraud, but never makes it into shareholder meetings or SEC filings? Fraud. Fraud. Fraud.

    This ******* belongs in jail.

    Hmmm technically speaking, this is part of his job. It's a criminal case (US vs. Whatever), and the DOJ's authority derives from the office of the president (also the SEC and Treausry)
