Mike Rounds asks why the SEC hasn't gone after cryptocurrency exchanges yet, and Gary responds that most cryptos are securities due to expectations of profits coming from developers.

Pat Toomey explained that the SEC's climate disclosure rule requires Congressional Authority due to its scope, and asked Gary if the SEC has considered rescinding its proposed climate disclosures rules. Gary said no, and Pat warned that if the SEC goes ahead with its climate disclosure rule, the SEC and the Gang will find themselves face to face with an unsympathetic Supreme Court.
