For the backstory to the Bankmanocaust, go here.
NEW YORK (Reuters) – The decision by U.S. prosecutors on Wednesday to drop a campaign finance charge against Sam Bankman-Fried may keep his trial focused on what the government considers his main crime: stealing billions of dollars from cryptocurrency customers at his now-bankrupt FTX exchange.
Yeah, stealing billions was pretty bad, I’ll give them that. However, he stole billions specifically so that he could give money to politicians so that they did what he wanted, and he did so with a pack of other Jews. This was the “most generous billionaire of all time,” remember? He wasn’t just stealing money to buy yachts.
He claimed to be giving only to Democrats, and then admitted otherwise. Who were the other “Republicans” that he was in a superPAC with to donate the money he stole from the Goyim?
But, SBF wasn’t the only billionaire to support the effort. Trump supporting billionaires (((Bernard Marcus))) (owner of Home Depot), (((Robert Kraft))) (owner of the Patriots), and (((Paul Singer))) (owner of Elliot Investment Management) each gave a million dollars to help defeat working class candidates.
I mean these guys, genetically, look like they know where the foreskins are kept.
Bankman-Fried, 31, is fighting to stay out of jail ahead of his Oct. 2 trial on fraud charges, after prosecutors in Manhattan accused him of tampering with witnesses by sharing personal writings of his former romantic partner Caroline Ellison with a New York Times reporter.
Caroline Ellison. I almost forgot about that maneater.
There were claims that these Jews would all have orgies together at the FTX HQ, with some overweight Indians getting in on that action. I couldn’t find concrete evidence of the world’s most stomach churning orgies of all time, but I choose to believe that it happened.
He got a modest victory on Wednesday night when prosecutors decided to drop a campaign finance charge claiming the former billionaire illegally directed associates to donate millions of dollars to political campaigns.
FFS, he obviously did that.
It’s just absurd to treat the US “justice” system like it’s any different from a third world banana republic, just with more resources.
That decision came after the Bahamas, where FTX was based and Bankman-Fried was arrested in December, told the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan it had not intended to extradite Bankman-Fried on that charge.
Resources that they pretend not to have whenever it serves their interests. I’m sure The Bahamas wouldn’t have extradicted Bankman-Fried over the campaign finance charges. It’s not like the United States is a nuclear superpower or anything.
No, tiny, powerless Weimerica had no leverage to force this tiny country in the Caribbean to hand him over, and the Bahamian leadership was gonna be principled on this, stick to their guns, and refuse to turn over this random foreigner to the US for no particular reason. Although they were already handing him over for all the other charges, so none of this makes any sense anyway, and it’s just a bunch of gibberish designed to justify them dropping the campaign finance charges for political reasons.
Bankman-Fried still faces seven counts of defrauding or conspiring to defraud customers, investors and lenders in what prosecutors called one of the “biggest financial frauds in American history.”
He faces a second trial next year on five charges brought after his extradition, including foreign bribery conspiracy and bank fraud conspiracy.
Mark Kasten, a lawyer at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney in Philadelphia, said dropping the campaign finance charge could help Bankman-Fried by letting his lawyers “focus their narrative” on the fraud case.
“Jurors have a visceral reaction to campaign finance charges: campaign finance charges are crimes on the public, and jurors themselves are indirect victims,” he said. “Victims of the other charges by comparison are customers of or investors in Alameda or FTX.”
It’s sickening what they’re doing here, and it reminds me a lot of the Ghislaine Maxwell trial. In that case, they made an Israeli sex trafficking and blackmail ring into some apolitical thing about Maxwell maybe helping Jeffrey Epstein go slightly too far with some happy ending massage.
In this case, they’re making sure to remove the political purpose to Sam Bankman-Fried’s crimes, which destroy any remaining legitimacy the (((Democracy Class))) has of partisanship. The reality is that all these politicians are owned by the same people, push the same policies, and then agree to put on a show where they pretend otherwise. Putting Bankman-Fried on trial for campaign finance violations would forever expose that, so they’re not interested.
