    The scandal-plagued U.S. bank Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) is "too big to manage," a top U.S. lawmaker told CEO Tim Sloan at a hearing Tuesday in Washington. Maxine Waters, a Democratic congresswoman who heads the U.S. House of Representatives' Financial Services Committee, said at the hearing that Wells Fargo is blighted by "ongoing lawlessness and failure to right the ship." Waters represents a district in southern California, where some of the San Francisco-based bank's alleged customer abuses first emerged. It was the first time Sloan has appeared before the House panel since Democrats took control of the chamber following...

    Rep. Maxine Waters, who is leading a probe into President Donald Trump's finances, wants Trump's nonprofit foundation to be the Democrats' next target because of tax evasion concerns. The House Financial Services Committee chairwoman hinted to reporters on Thursday that she may even have a lead in the form of a letter "from somebody who told me about a situation that they want to talk with me more about.” Trump agreed to shut down his personal charity in December following a lawsuit brought by the New York attorney general that alleged the president and his children used the foundation for...

    Rep. Maxine Waters feels sorry for broke millennials. In fact, the California representative seemed to go so far as to apologize to the younger generation for their economic situation during a speech Friday. “Millennials say, ‘We have done everything you told us to do, only to find out we can’t get a job. And when we get a job it’s not worth going to work every day because of the pay that is offered to us,’” she told the audience at the Rainbow Coalition Wall Street Project Economic Summit at the Sheraton Hotel in Midtown. Democrat Waters — who has...

    **SNIP** He noted that Waters was the subject of a House Ethics Committee investigation in 2010 over a meeting she arranged between the Treasury Department and representatives of OneUnited bank, where her husband was a notable shareholder. OneUnited went on to obtain $12 million in federal bailout funding. The ethics charges against Waters were dropped in 2012. "By the time Maxine Waters scheduled the meeting with the Treasury secretary, her husband owned approximately $350,000 in OneUnited stock, all of which would have likely gone down the drain without the bailout money she helped secure," Hilton said. "How lovely for Maxine...

    Maxine Waters, who has criticized President Trump and Republicans for their “rhetoric,” has been cranking up her tone since Democrats won the U.S. House of Representatives last week.

She also said she wishes Trump would “keep his mouth shut” about the issues plaguing her home state. Later in the segment, the anti-Trump lawmaker was asked by host Joy Reid about a tweet from Trump. The president took issue with California receiving billions of dollars every year from the federal government...

    Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., is facing scrutiny from a conservative watchdog group for possibly violating fundraising rules in a slate mailer, with the group requesting that Waters’ campaign committee be audited as a result. The Federal Election Commission received a complaint Monday from the National Legal and Policy Center claiming that Waters, her campaign, and a pro-charter school group called Families and Teachers for Antonio Villaraigosa violated federal election law. The complaint claims the group paid $25,000 for Villaraigosa to be featured in the Waters mailer when he was running for governor in the Democratic primary earlier this year. Although...

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, one of the most outspoken members of the anti-Trump ‘resistance’ in Congress, is facing fresh questions about a longstanding controversy regarding how her campaign raises money and how those funds have flowed to her daughter. The California congresswoman has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars each election cycle from some of her state’s biggest politicians paying to be listed on her slate mailers—sample ballots traditionally mailed out to about 200,000 voters in Los Angeles highlighting whom she supports. Since 2004, the campaign in turn reportedly has paid $750,000 to the congresswoman’s daughter, Karen Waters, or her...

    A package labeled “Anne Thrax” was delivered to the building where Representative Maxine Waters’ district offices are located on Tuesday. Although parts of the building were evacuated, according to CNN, the Los Angeles Fire Department determined that there was no hazard.

The package isn’t the first time Waters has received threats. Time reports she had to cancel two public events in June after receiving a serious death...

    Democrats have a socialist problem that they are having trouble sweeping under the rug.  The party line appears to be that their new star, self-proclaimed democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is not the face of the party; rather, she's not a radical and doesn't speak for most Democrats. Rep. Maxine Waters went so far as to deny that Democrats are socialists at all. CNBC: The top Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee sent a message to the party's progressive wing on Wednesday, distancing herself from the vocal lawmakers to her left as the party continues to debate its message ahead...

Maxine Waters on Wednesday took a shot at fellow Democrats who want to abolish the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which is tasked with enforcing the nation’s immigration laws. Democrats who want to abolish ICE — a deeply unpopular political position — “didn’t really think it through,” Waters said at CNBC’s Capital Exchange Breakfast. Her comments were first reported by left-wing website Vox.
