The SEC has sent subpoenas to investment firms that attended a meeting in July 2008 with Henry Paulson as part of a probe into whether the attendees traded on the information the then-Treasury Secretary shared, the WSJ reports. That includes Paulson's possible suggestion that the government was willing to rescue Fannie and Freddie. Participants included GSO, now part of Blackstone (BX), and Taconic.
