Of MF global former treasurer in -- O'Brien has been subpoenaed for her testimony but is it possible.
That O'Brien is gonna take the fifth Charlie Gasparino course.
Has the latest needed following the story I.
I think I think the better question would be is it possible that she might not take them and her attorneys have single to the committee.
If she used compelled to testify which he has been today as we were reporting for the last couple weeks that she's there were interest in bringing -- and they compel -- today.
With a subpoena if she is compelled that she will take if if that's what attorneys say but what I'm hearing from sources close -- the subcommittee is the subcommittee.
On investigations of the house financial services committee.
That's -- -- but anyway is that they believe there's a good chance she's gonna -- why is that.
And they point to the fact that Jon Corzine the former CEO MF global.
He testified right his lawyers are threatening to take the fifth right before the reason why is when you're in the securities industry it's very hard.
To basically get another job.
If you're out there taking the Fifth Amendment against self that is self self recrimination.
Termination it's it's a it's a real problem.
So they're betting in the end she takes of if we should point out -- kind of a weird thing going on here she is working with the trustee.
To recoup the money.
That is -- now think about someone who is thinking about taking the fifth is actually working with the trust me.
We understand from the trustee spokesman it's you know purely operational she's being supervised.
But that is bizarre if she's working with the trust the on top of the fact she's gonna take the fifth.
That sounds so bizarre we'll -- anybody takes to fit that starts to the alarm bells go -- when your prosecutor.
Jon Corzine didn't answer many questions but I think he did himself a lot of good by going there and just you know equivocation but acquitted -- -- -- -- It seemed as if if he was hiding something you know it at the very least he took the chance and out I tell -- that a lot of people say they're not -- bring criminal charges against anybody gluten -- So -- suggested that this is this is a key one listen she has she's along with the direct role to transfer the money she's a huge witness if she doesn't take the fifth.
When they have the committee hearing I believe it's at the end of the month march 28.
Well guess what that'll be high drama that will be a must see event.
