This would be the largest fine ever imposed by federal bank regulators and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

这将是美国联邦监管银行的机构以及消费者金融保护局所处以的最高罚款。

The fine is part of a settlement regulators negotiated with the bank.

Wells Fargo and federal officials have not commented on the reports.

富国银行和联邦政府官员都没有针对媒体的报道发表评论。

The San Francisco-based lender admitted selling the unwanted insurance policies to hundreds of thousands of car loan customers. In many cases, the borrowers could not afford both the insurance and car payments and their cars were repossessed.

Many U.S. banks have enjoyed looser federal regulations under President Donald Trump's pro-business administration.

对商业公司更为友善的特朗普行政当局实行了更宽松的监管政策,很多美国银行从中受益。

But Trump denied reports that Wells Fargo would not be punished, tweeting in December that fines and penalties against the bank would, if anything, be substantially increased.

但是特朗普总统否认有关富国银行将不受任何处罚的消息。他去年12月曾发推说,如果有任何变化,富国银行受到的处罚和罚款只会大大加重。

"I will cut regs but make penalties severe when caught cheating," he wrote.
