In a shocking development, it has come to light that Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman Gary Gensler scrubbed mention of a meeting with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and key details of a meeting with billionaire Democratic donor George Soros from the public version of his calendar.
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.
It is clear that Gensler, a former Goldman Sachs executive and Obama administration official, has deep ties to the Democratic Party. He was the chief financial officer for Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016. The Senate confirmed him to lead the SEC in April 2021, shortly after President Biden selected him for the high-profile position.
The fact that Gensler has scrubbed his meetings with Clinton and Soros from the public version of his calendar is deeply concerning. It raises questions about his impartiality and whether he is using his position at the SEC to further the agenda of the Democratic Party.
Furthermore, Gensler’s meetings with Pelosi and Moore, both Democratic Party operatives, only further reinforce the belief that he is politicizing the supposedly independent SEC.
It is time for Gensler to come clean and provide a full and transparent accounting of his meetings with Clinton, Soros, Pelosi, and Moore. The American people deserve to know the truth and to have confidence in the integrity of the SEC. Anything less is a disservice to the country and the rule of law.
