CREW: CFTC: SEC: Regarding Communications with Wall Street Investors (FOIA Log Followup - 6/23/11)

On February 8, 2012, CREW filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), seeking information on communications between targeted investors and the CFTC/SEC. CREW made these requests as part of a broader effort to ascertain the extent that Wall Street investors have attempted to influence federal agency policies and regulations for their own financial gain. CREW has already uncovered evidence of investor influence at the Department of Education and the Food and Drug Administration through FOIA requests.
