Charlie Gasparino: “As of right now” Erin Callan Won’t Be Charged By the SEC

But next Monday, Wednesday or post-Labor Day, it could be a completely different story!


We’re waiting on the video from our friends over at FBN but for now here’s what the Fox Business News Breaking specialist has for us:

On who from Lehman Brothers will be charged by the SEC:
“There is a lot of speculation as to who will be charged in the SEC’s investigation of Lehman Brothers. As of right now at least, it will not be the former CFO Erin Callan.”

On how we know Callan is not being charged:
“Attorney for Callan Robert Cleary tells FBN she has not received a Wells Notice. As of right now she is not going to get charged. It could still come.”

On when the charges will be filed:
“This is an interesting development because the end game on this is clearly happening. And it’s the two year anniversary of Lehman’s bankruptcy Callan was one of the people putting out the positive image of the firm as it was imploding that’s what they are investigating.”

So there you have it! Things are day-to-day for Ms Callan (i.e. kicking it in the Hamptons, dating a fire fighter). The situation remains fluid.

But next Monday, Wednesday or post-Labor Day, it could be a completely different story!
