Sam Bankman-Fried Will Not Testify at December 13th Hearing

Sam Bankman-Fried thinking about Maxine Waters

Sam Bankman-Fried has indicated on Twitter that he will not be prepared to testify in front of the US House Financial Services Committee on December 13th. Bankman-Fried stated he would feel ready enough to testify at a later date.



Maxine Waters, the well known Democratic Congresswoman, leads the Financial Services Committee and received campaign donations from Sam Bankman-Fried.

As you can see from Bankman-Fried's tweet, Waters treats him not as a financial criminal, but as an unfortunate fallen CEO.

Earlier this week, Bankman-Fried did a series of soft-ball interviews with George Stephanopoulos and Andrew Ross-Sorkin among other mainstream journalists. Viewers noted how Bankman-Fried continually faced down and took long pauses before answering questions in all of his interviews.

Ross-Sorkin, in particular, seemed to respect Bankman-Fried, and thanked him for doing his interview for the New York Times. You could've watched this financial criminal talk with Ross-Sorkin for a whopping $2500 a ticket. It's hard to understand why anyone would pay this amount for an online interview, since Bankman-Fried was in the Bahamas.

What's obvious, is that Bankman-Fried has the establishment wrapped around his finger, even after what he did to innocent customers.
