Ripple calls for investigation into former SEC official after document release

Quick Take

  • Ripple is calling for a fresh investigation into William Hinman, a former director of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Corporation Finance.
  • The development came after documents in an ongoing lawsuit brought by the SEC against Ripple were released earlier in the day that showed behind-the-scenes edits and correspondence about a now-infamous 2018 speech about crypto regulation.
