According to a Fox News report, SEC Chairman Gary Gensler has been exposed for scrubbing any mention of secret meetings with Hillary Clinton and George Soros from the public version of his calendar.
Gary Gensler, a former Goldman Sachs executive and Obama administration official, was appointed by President Joe Biden as the SEC chief in April 2021. Gensler was the chief financial officer for Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
So what is he trying to hide?
According to a Fox News Digital review:
Gensler’s public calendar showed that he only had a staff meeting on Aug. 7, 2021. Meanwhile, his private calendar lists a meeting with Clinton. On Aug. 20, 2021, his public calendar listed a meeting with Soros, but the meeting’s agenda is hidden. His private calendar mentions one agenda item: to discuss his forthcoming Wall Street Journal op-ed.
Gensler’s private calendar revealing the discrepancies was obtained by the watchdog group Energy Policy Advocates and shared with Fox News Digital. The group finally filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the SEC to get those records.
In recent days, when Fox News Digital contacted the SEC, the agency updated Gensler’s public calendar to include his meeting with Clinton in August 2021. However, as recently as Wednesday, the public calendar didn’t include the meeting. Archived copies of the webpage from April also list just a meeting with staff.
According to Fox News, an SEC spokesperson was questioned about this discrepancy. He replied that the agency occasionally updates its calendars “when it discovers something is missing or inaccurate.”
Additionally, archived copies of Gensler’s public calendar revealed other omissions regarding secret meetings. Examples include House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Washington, D.C. consultant Minyon Moore, a former White House official. The SEC has since updated the calendar to include these meetings.
