On "The News & Why It Matters," BlazeTV hosts Sara Gonzales and Alex Stein, along with actor and director Matthew Marsden, talked about the ongoing saga of Sam Bankman-Fried, the former CEO and founder of FTX cryptocurrency who is accused of stealing billions of dollars from the customers of his now-collapsed company.
Bankman-Fried faces up to life in prison on charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud, conspiracy to commit commodities fraud, conspiracy to commit securities fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and conspiracy to defraud the Federal Election Commission and commit campaign finance violation. He allegedly used billions of dollars from FTX customers for his own personal use, to repay loans owed by Alameda Research, and to donate millions of dollars to political campaigns.
He was also the Democrats' second-biggest campaign donor, second only to George Soros. Are we about to see another Jeffrey Epstein situation?
