Pro-XRP Lawyer Continues To Blast The US SEC Chairman

Pro-XRP lawyer John Deaton has recently blasted the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman Gary Gensler on his security stance and questioned the chairman’s efficiency.

Deaton took to X to express his displeasure saying that the chairman has no clue what is or isn’t an investment contract also known as Security. This was in response to a 2022 clip post of Gary Gensler saying Ethereum (ETH) had transformed from a security to a non-security as it had become more decentralized.

Deaton further questioned the chairman’s competency saying that Gensler continues to ignore the fact that US Securities laws do not apply to the purchase of an asset for non-investment use cases.

In his tweet, Deaton highlighted that the Chairman might be seeing himself as someone above the law as he doesn’t give a shit what the law says. Deaton concluded his tweet suggesting that Gary Gensler must go, to further express his disbelief in the chairman. 

In June 2023, Congressman Warren Davidson also called for the chairman’s removal calling Gary Gensler a “tyrannical” chairman. The Congressman claimed that the SEC’s actions against the crypto industry are unjust and must be protected from Gensler.
