There's one person in particular the government seems to just be dying to get it's hands on but up until this moment, no one has had the vaguest clue-- none whatsoever!-- as to who it could possibly be, nor has there been nary a hint. Until now.

Mr. Gasparino said, “Regulatory sources are telling the FOX Business Network that the FBI, the Justice Department, are using the same techniques they used against the mobs and against terrorists. There is a gentleman in the middle they want to snare."

"Sources are telling us among those top players in the middle Steve Cohen the head of SAC Capital is clearly on the radar screen. The lower level guys are the people they are looking to arrest, flip, gain information from, and make the case against the top guy. It is classic mob related, terrorist related investigation.”

Fox Business Senior Email Correspondent: Thousands Of Goldman Employees Saw Muppet Movie, Wanted To Talk About It The Next Day

Late last week, investigative reporter Charlie Gasparino came out with a bombshell story: after reading former employee Greg Smith's allegation that he'd seen and heard colleagues refer to clients as "muppets," the British term for stupid people, the firm launched an investigation into the claim (e.g. searched emails for said word). On Friday, Gasparino breathlessly reported that while  Goldman did find some muppet mentions, they referred to the Jason Segal film and were not malicious in their intent (quoth CG: "GS found no evidence of malicious muppet talk in emails).  While a lesser journalist would have been content to take the source at his or her word, Charles Gasparino is no such journalist. He get kept digging on this one and now, amazingly, has more to add: "People close to Goldman tell FOX Business 98% of the email muppet use referred to the movie. Sources at Goldman also say the malicious muppet use in emails involves name calling among colleagues; apparently at Goldman they call each other muppet. Sources say the firm find no evidence so far to substantiate Smith’s claims that people were talking about clients.” Gasparino on Muppet Movie Referrals in Goldman Emails [FBN]
