Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse took the Twitter community by surprise as he released a video wherein he discussed the events of the week, specifically the release of the Hinman documents.
Garlinghouse tweeted alongside the video that he was trying something new, as he usually does not make videos of this nature.
In the video clip, the Ripple CEO highlighted the SEC's inconsistencies as he shared the implications of the Hinman documents.
A line from the Ripple CEO that caught the attention of the XRP community was that "as our case comes to a close, the fight for clarity has to continue."
A Twitter user, Jay'V, underlines this as the keyword he caught in the Ripple CEO's speech. For another XRP community member, Mark Phillips, the Ripple case is at an inflection point, and big news might be expected soon.

As reported, former SEC attorney Marc Fagel predicted the Ripple lawsuit would come to a close in days. He notes that a delay could result from several factors other than the case's complexity.
Earlier, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse made an audacious prediction of the lawsuit being resolved in "weeks" and not months.
