According to an exclusive report from Fox News, SEC Chairman Gary Gensler has been exposed for scrubbing any mention of secret meetings with Hillary Clinton George Soros from the public version of his calendar.
What is he trying to hide?
Here’s more details from Fox News:
Gensler’s public calendar showed that he only had a staff meeting on Aug. 7, 2021, while his private calendar lists a meeting with Clinton, according to a Fox News Digital review. And on Aug. 20, 2021, his public calendar lists a meeting with Soros but hid the meeting’s agenda, which his private calendar shows was to discuss a forthcoming Wall Street Journal op-ed the business magnate was planning to write.
Gensler’s private calendar revealing the discrepancies was obtained by the watchdog group Energy Policy Advocates and shared with Fox News Digital. The group was only able to obtain the internal records after filing a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the SEC.
In recent days, around the time Fox News Digital contacted the SEC, the agency updated Gensler’s public calendar to include his meeting with Clinton in August 2021. As recently as Wednesday the public calendar didn’t include the meeting, and archived copies of the webpage from April also list just a meeting with staff.
According to Fox News, when initially asked about the omitted Clinton meeting, an SEC spokesperson replied that the agency occasionally updates its calendars “when it discovers something is missing or inaccurate.”
Subsequently, archived copies of Gensler’s public calendar revealed meetings with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Washington, D.C. consultant Minyon Moore, a former White House official, had also been omitted. The SEC has since updated the calendar to include these meetings. 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.
