Wells Fargo's troubles in Washington are deepening.
The House of Representatives Financial Services Committee is seeking interviews with several bank executives in the wake of revelations that the bank employed thousands of staffers who created fake accounts in order to meet performance goals.
Committee chairman and Texas Republican Jeb Hensarling is seeking records pertaining to allegations of fraud by Wells Fargo employees, according to a letter sent to the bank's general counsel on Friday.
That letter seeks transcribed interviews with CFO John Shrewsberry, COO and president Timothy Sloan, chief risk officer Michael Loughlin and Carrie Tolstedt, the executive who oversaw the bank unit responsible for fake accounts, and who departed the bank with a pay package worth nearly $100 million.
The House Financial Services Committee is also seeking Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf to testify at its hearing, which will be scheduled for later in September.
