5. I think you're exactly right...
Edited on Sat Jul-25-09 05:38 PM by CoffeeCat
This really deserves its own thread.

It totally makes sense. They strongarmed WF into participating--because WF was a threat to their
precious Goldman and JPM. Wells did have some problems with mortgages that were failing, but they
were a very conservative bank that was doing well. They didn't have a lot of subprime stuff on
their balance sheet like some of the other banks.

It appears that they forced wells to participate to control them. Get them under their thumb--much
like a loan shark controls their "customers".

Now, the dismantling begins, I guess. So fricking obvious--as this hatchet job comes out of
There have been two damaging articles on Wells in the past week.

There's a huge story here...for anyone who wants to do some digging. I wish Wells would open up and tell us
all about these thugs.
