Dublin, OH, United States (NewsBahn) – Phil Mickelson said he’s nothing wrong regarding an insider trading investigation involving him, investor Carl Icahn and Las Vegas gambler Billy Walters.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Securities and Exchange Commission are reportedly looking into whether nonpublic information was traded among parties.
“I have done absolutely nothing wrong,” Mickelson said in a statement early Saturday morning, hours after playing in the Memorial Tournament. “I have cooperated with the government in this investigation and will continue to do so. I wish I could fully discuss this matter, but under the current circumstances, it’s just not possible.”
