(SNews) – Fox Business star Maria Bartiromo asked Sen. Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) whether disgraced FTX “fraudster” Sam Bankman-Fried is getting TV interviews rather than getting arrested because he donated a massive amount of cash to the Democrats.
“I didn’t ever try to commit fraud on anyone,” Bankman-Fried said.
“I was excited about the prospects of FTX a month ago. I saw it as a thriving, growing business. I was shocked by what happened this month, and reconstructing it, there are things I wish I’d done differently.”
Sen. Lummis said: “Well, I think that these were well-educated, sophisticated fraudsters. I think it’s obviously fraud. So the Justice Department needs to get involved.
“This was just pure and simple, good old-fashioned fraud, and it needs to be handled through the criminal procedures.”
“But if it’s good old-fashioned fraud, why is he doing the rounds this morning?
“He was on GMA.
“He was at the New York Times summit.
“Why isn’t he in handcuffs? Is it because he donated $40 million to Democrats?”
“Well I hope that’s not it,” said Lummis.
“But it does have the appearance of a kid glove treatment for someone who had mesmerized the public.”
Bankman-Fried is a public Dem donor, second only to George Soros. But he has claimed that he “secretly” donated to Republicans via “dark money” groups.
If you are going to commit massive fraud, as it appears this clown did, buying both or one political parties is a good investment.
We shall see what shakes out but billions are missing and so far he has not provided any answers other than to claim that he was not aware one of his companies took client money and gambled it.
SBF: “Look, I’ve had a bad month”
Crowd: *Laughs hysterically* like it’s all some kind of joke.
