SEC Chairman Gensler Scrubbed Evidence Of Clinton, Soros And Pelosi Meetings: FOIA Lawsuit

Sunlight is the best disinfectant – unless you’re Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman Gary Gensler – who scrubbed evidence of a meeting with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from his calendar, along with key details of a meeting with Billionaire leftist-operative George Soros.

He also concealed September 21 meetings with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and former Bill Clinton White House official-turned-DC consultant, Minyon Moore.

Gensler, a former Goldman Sachs executive, Obama administration official, Clinton’s 2016 campaign CFO, and FTX associate, essentially had two calendars. His public calendar showed that on Aug. 7, 2021, he only had a staff meeting, while his private calendar lists a meeting with Hillary ClintonFox News reports.

Thirteen days later on Aug. 20, 2021, Gensler’s public calendar does list a meeting with Soros, but the agenda was hidden. His private calendar reveals that the meeting was held to discuss an upcoming WSJ op-ed Soros was planning to write in which he slammed BlackRock for launching investment products for Chinese customers, while also applauding the company’s ESG policies.

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. -Fox News

Rand Paul: “Republicans Are Not Perfect. But Are Not Pushing Your Child To Have Surgery To Remove Their Genitalia”

When contacted for comment, the SEC initially lied – saying that the Clinton meeting was visible on Gensler’s public calendar. When confronted with screenshots to the contrary, the spokesperson said that the agency updates calendars “from time to time” when inaccuracies are discovered (by watchdog groups?). 

Gensler also concealed several September 2021 meetings with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Minyon Moore – both of which have been now updated on Gensler’s public calendar.

“That even George Soros is calling out progressive darling BlackRock for craven blundering is striking — even if it did carry the requisite, tribal praise for BlackRock’s truly damaging ‘ESG’ (environmental, social and governance) campaigning to impose their shared ‘climate’ agenda on the U.S., an agenda also much to China’s delight,” said Chris Horner, a lawyer representing Energy Policy Advocates. “That it appears Soros received counsel from Gary Gensler on the mega-donor’s call for more SEC powers as a result is truly astonishing.”

This gives further credence to the widespread concern that Gensler is deeply politicizing a supposedly independent commission,” he continued. “He may have been Hillary Clinton’s ‘Progressive Beacon’ not long ago, but Gary Gensler is now the SEC chairman, and his calendar indicates he knew the purpose of the meeting. It seems important to know whose idea this was, why, what was said arranging it and through what channel.”

According to the SEC spokesperson, Gensler has never asked anyone to ‘draft or submit’ an op-ed, but declined to comment on the meeting with Soros.

Gensler has faced heavy criticism from business groups and Republican lawmakers for pushing progressive policies, including a climate disclosure rule that would require publicly traded companies to share carbon emissions data and other climate information.

Reps. Bill Huizenga, R-Mich., and Andy Barr, R-Ky., two top GOP members on the House Financial Services Committee, introduced legislation this month that would limit the SEC’s ability to require such climate disclosures. -Fox News

“That this and Gensler’s consultation with Hillary were scrubbed from the public version of his calendar is frankly the least surprising aspect of this,” Horner continued. “The SEC first told Energy Policy Advocates that the publicly posted calendars were all they would get.”

“Energy Policy Advocates challenged that, pointing out that these sanitized versions, typically posted months after the fact, were certainly not produced from memory and the group wanted the originals. Here you see the reason for the scrubbing these internal versions receive.

A new Harvard/ Harris survey has revealed that six in ten Americans have reservations over Joe Biden’s mentally capacity to run again in 2024, with 65 percent agreeing that at 80-years-old, Biden is “too old” to continue as President.

Over a third of that 65 percent are Democrats, with almost a quarter of Democrats also saying they have doubts about Biden’s mental fitness.

The poll found that a whopping 90 percent of Republicans and 73 percent of Independents agree Biden is now showing he is too old and it should preclude him from running again in 2024.

Eighty seven percent of GOP voters say Biden doesn’t have the mental fitness to run again, while 67 percent of independents agree.

The poll also found that 61 percent of Americans believe the country is heading in the wrong direction, with a majority, 56 percent, expressing an unfavorable view of Biden.

The survey also notes that just 37 percent approve of how Biden has handled the border crisis, while 62 percent highly disapprove of his handling of the economy.

According to the survey, if an election were held today between Trump and Biden, the former would win by 5 points.

Biden’s mental decline was on display again Thursday, when during an event in Springfield, Virginia, he joked about people thinking he was “stupid” before making yet another embarrassing verbal gaffe, referring to Rep. Don Beyer as “Doug”.

He stammered his way through the appearance:

Biden also managed to get lost on stage again:

    Video: Rand Paul Warns Overclassification Being Used To Cover Up COVID Lab Leak

    “The intelligence community does this so they have more power and we have less power”

    Senator Rand Paul warned Wednesday that over classification of information is being used to avoid oversight and institute cover ups, such as regarding the origins of COVID.

    Appearing on Newsmax TV’s “Eric Bolling The Balance,” Paul explained “I think there’s an overclassification problem here. Everything’s classified. And in all likelihood, what we’ll find is this is not some sort of organized scheme to have the secrets to the nuclear weapon in [Biden’s] Corvette. I think it’s more likely than not that we’ve classified so many documents that it’s hard to find documents that are not classified.”

    He continued, “The one problem with classifying so much is that there is, right now, to my knowledge, pretty good information out there in the intelligence community about the virus originating from the lab in China, and yet they classify it to try to prohibit people [like] me giving you the information that we already know that this came from a lab. And so this is a real problem.”

    “We need to allow less classification so the American people can understand more about what’s going on with their government,” Paul urged.

    He added, “I go to classified hearings, and I haven’t actually been to a classified hearing where I actually thought I heard a secret, to tell you the truth.”

    Paul further noted that when President Trump was found to have some documents, “the left-wing media acted as if oh, these are the Manhattan Project. This is the secrets to the nuclear weapon… Really, most of the stuff we see is not really that secret. But it’s all stamped that way.”

    “The intelligence community does this so they have more power and we have less power,” the Senator continued, adding “I have long argued that Congress needs to know more and the American people need to know more about what the CIA does, what the FBI does. Because we can’t oversee them, we can’t have oversight and reform if we don’t know what they’re doing.”

    “They avoid oversight by classifying things, and often there’s a policy decision like, for example, with COVID, we need to know if COVID came from a lab so we can prevent this from happening again. Some of this is being stymied by the intelligence agencies classifying things that need to be declassified,” Paul further asserted.

    Watch:

    Paul has previously labeled the subterfuge over the coronavirus lab leak as “the biggest coverup in the history of science,” and has vowed to continue to expose the origins of the pandemic and uncover a paper trail that he is positive will lead back to the Wuhan lab research funded by Anthony Fauci and the National Institutes of Health.

    Non-Violent J6 Protester Who Put Feet Up On Pelosi’s Desk Found Guilty On All Charges, Faces Life in Prison

    Richard “Bigo” Barnett, 62, is facing a potential life sentence for peacefully entering the Capitol on January 6th and putting his feet up on Nancy Pelosi’s desk.

    Barnett was wildly overcharged by vindictive prosecutors and denied a change of venue out of Washington, DC.

    Prosecutors seized on the fact his cane doubled as a stun gun and could have been used as a weapon even thought it wasn’t. 

    From The Washington Post, “Man photographed in Pelosi’s office on Jan. 6 convicted of 8 counts”:

    An Arkansas man who entered the U.S. Capitol with rioters on Jan. 6, 2021, and was photographed lounging at a desk in then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office suite was convicted Monday of eight federal crimes related to the incursion.

    Richard “Bigo” Barnett, now 62, who left a crude written message for Pelosi before departing the office suite with a purloined envelope bearing the California Democrat’s digital signature, sat impassively as a jury in U.S. District Court in Washington delivered its decisions.

    After nine days of testimony and legal arguments in the trial, the panel began deliberating Monday morning and reached guilty verdicts on all eight counts against Barnett, including four felonies, in less than two hours.

    The most serious charge he faced, obstructing an official government proceeding, carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. But advisory sentencing guidelines used by the court are likely to recommend a much shorter term in his case.

    […] Barnett, an ardent supporter of former president Donald Trump, was carrying a walking stick equipped with a high-voltage stun device when he entered the Capitol. […]

    Besides obstructing an official proceeding, Barnett was convicted of two felonies related to carrying a dangerous weapon in the Capitol and a felony charge of civil disorder. The four misdemeanors he was convicted of included theft of government property, meaning the envelope.

    DC is currently working to lower penalties for carjackers, robbers and armed felons in the name of fighting “systemic racism” but Bigo and other J6 protesters are getting the book thrown at them. 

    Carjacking thugs need “restorative justice” but J6 protesters must face retribution.
