Attorney Deaton Take A Close Watch On the Shortcomings Of SEC Chair

Attorney Deaton told the Ripple community that the failure of the United States Commission to investigate questionable Chinese investments by Sequoia Capital could be the end of the SEC’s Gary Gensler.

In his recent tweet, John Deaton noted that Sequoia was also an FTX investor. It came in response to a thread by Brian Costello, a technology executive with a background in international finance. Costello, in his line, calls out Congress for playing a role in allowing China to become a more significant threat to U.S. national security by turning a blind eye to the reluctance of the Gensler-led SEC to investigate firms like Sequoia.
