(PatrioticPost.com)- SEC Chairman Gary Gensler removed mention of a meeting with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as critical information of a meeting with billionaire Democratic donor George Soros, from his public calendar.
According to reports, 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. On Aug. 20, 2021, his public schedule displayed a meeting with Soros but concealed the topic, which his secret calendar reveals was to discuss a planned forthcoming Wall Street Journal op-ed on Soros.
The watchdog group, Energy Policy Advocates, received Gensler’s private calendar, which revealed the anomalies. After launching a Freedom of Information Act action against the SEC, the group was able to get internal records.
The SEC has updated Gensler’s public schedule to reflect his meeting with Clinton in August 2021. The meeting was not on the public calendar as recently as last Wednesday, and archived copies of the homepage from April similarly indicate only a meeting with employees. When a screenshot of the calendar showing the Clinton meeting was supplied, the representative said that the agency adjusts calendars from time to time when something is missing or incorrect.
Reports show that two weeks after Gensler and Soros’ meeting, the Wall Street Journal published an op-ed written by Soros. In the piece, Soros slammed large asset management BlackRock for developing investment products for Chinese customers while supporting the company’s environmental policies. Soros eventually advocated that Congress enact legislation granting the already powerful SEC further regulatory authority.
Business organizations and Republican lawmakers have slammed Gensler for supporting progressive initiatives, such as a climate disclosure rule requiring publicly traded corporations to reveal carbon emissions data and other climate information.
According to reports, Reps. Bill Huizenga, R-Mich., and Andy Barr, R-Ky., two key GOP members on the House Financial Services Committee, presented legislation this month that would limit the SEC’s ability to demand such climate disclosures.
Huizenga explained to the media that American job creators are under relentless assault from the heavy-handed regulatory approach of the Securities and Exchange Commission under Gary Gensler. The SEC wants to significantly extend disclosure requirements. Such an increase would not only undermine our economy but also considerably affect small enterprises making it difficult for investors to retire with financial security.
