Hillary Clinton is attacking Wells Fargo in her stump speeches following the bank’s settlement acknowledging that some of its employees opened accounts that were not authorized by bank customers.
The scandal makes Wells Fargo a prime target for politicians looking to score populist points, and Clinton is accusing Wells Fargo of “bullying” its employees into committing misconduct.
But Clinton counts the bank as one of her major sources of campaign cash.
Wells Fargo employees have pumped $258,351 into Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, according to records.
The “Wells Fargo Community Support Campaign” is a Clinton Foundation donor.
Perhaps most damningly, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s brother Tony, a Clinton campaign bundler, disclosed that he lobbied for his client Wells Fargo in the second quarter of this year, 2016.
