Lay says as well as the money that former CFO Andrew Fastow admitted stealing from Enron, it was possible misconduct by Fastow that provoked a loss of confidence, causing a run on the company's treasury. Lay faces trial January 17th--alongside former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling and former top accountant Richard Causey. All have pleaded innocent. Lay, Skilling and Causey face counts of fraud, conspiracy, insider trading, lying to auditors and others.
