Pro-XRP attorney John Deaton says that the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) erred in filing aiding and abetting allegations against Rippleā€™s CEO Brad Garlinghouse.

Deaton highlighted that testimony from former SEC officials Bill Hinman and Jay Clayton during the SEC vs. Labs case would have categorized XRP (XRP) as a non-security early on, but the agency deliberately disregarded this information for an extended period.
