Hillary Clinton blasted Wells Fargo Monday over the scandal that led to thousands of employees being terminated for collecting fees on fake accounts. 

Clinton, however, is now being revealed as Wells Fargo's top recipient of campaign donations, outpacing the next presidential candidate -- Jeb Bush -- by more than 300 percent. In all, Wells Fargo has contributed $258,351 to Clinton's campaign. 

The second highest recipient is Bernie Sanders' Senate campaign, which collected $61,043. 

Of the latest scandal, Clinton said it shows that, "Eight years after a cowboy culture on Wall Street wrecked our economy, we are still seeing powerful bankers playing fast and loose with the law."

"It is outrageous," she said.
