(TheRedWire.com) – In April 2021, the Senate confirmed President Joe Biden’s nominee, Gary Gensler, to lead the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC). The chairman is a former executive at Goldman Sachs, an Obama official, and the chief financial officer for Hillary Clinton’s 2018 presidential campaign. On Monday, December 12, Fox News reported it obtained information from a watchdog group about Gensler’s hidden meetings with Hillary Clinton and billionaire George Soros.
Energy Policy Advocates recently obtained files subsequent to filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the SEC after a review of the chairman’s calendar showed discrepancies. On August 7, 2021, Gensler’s public calendar indicated he conducted a single staff meeting for the day. Yet, his personal calendar revealed a meeting with Hillary Clinton.
Bombshell exclusive from @ThomasCatenacci @FoxNews Biden’s SEC Chairman Gary Gensler deleted key details of meetings with George Soros, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi from the public version of his calendar. Did they discuss #FTX and #SBF? https://t.co/Z9tyQuzINz #FoxNews

On August 20, 2021, the public calendar said he met with Soros but lacked details about why they met. The personal calendar noted that the meeting pertained to an upcoming op-ed Soros planned to write for the Wall Street Journal.
That’s not all. According to archived data, Gensler’s public calendar didn’t reflect meetings with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and political consultant Minyon Moore, who once served as a White House official.
Although aides have updated Gensler’s calendar, it hasn’t stopped concerns. Energy Policy Advocates lawyer Chris Horner said the mishaps reflect a serious pattern that showed the SEC chairman has “deeply politicized a supposedly independent commission.”
