Throughout Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf’s rough day in front of the House Financial Services Committee, multiple representatives called for the bank to be broken up, suggesting that the megabank is simply too big to manage effectively.
But as the five-hour hearing neared its conclusion, the ranking member of the committee, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., went beyond her fellow representatives’ calls to break up Wells Fargo, stating that she is going to actually move to break up the bank.
“I’ve come to the conclusion that Wells Fargo should be broken up,” Waters said. “It’s too big to manage and I’m moving forward to break up the bank.”
According to a represenative from Waters’ office, Waters told reporters after the hearing that she plans to pursue legislation to break up the bank.
