“Sometimes Life Creeps Up on You” – FTX Owner and Dem Donor Sam Bankman-Fried Blames Ex-Girlfriend for Collapse of Company and $32 Billion Loss

The CEO of now-bankrupt FTX admitted last week that FTX was nothing more than a laundromat for the Ukrainian government.

TGP previously reported that the now-bankrupt FTX was transferring money to Ukraine and then laundering money back from Ukraine to the Democrat party.

TGP earlier identified an interview where Bankman-Fried admitted that FTX was laundering money for the Ukrainian government.

All the money that the US sent to Ukraine over the past two decades needs to be audited and investigated. 

How many billions of US dollars sent to Ukraine ended up back in the pockets of US politicians?

We already know that Bankman-Fried donated $38 million to Democrats in the 2022 midterms second only to Soros.

Samuel Bankman-Fried opened up to Vox reporter Kelsey Piper this week following the collapse of his company and $32 billion loss.

Bankman-Fried blamed his uncomely ex-girlfriend for the company’s demise and said his comments about the importance of ethics was a front.

Daily Mail reported:

Bankman-Fried, 30, is still in the Bahamas following his company’s $32 billion loss, but openly spoke with Vox reporter Kelsey Piper through Twitter‘s direct message feature on Tuesday about his current circumstances with little remorse.

The FTX owner told Piper that his ex-girlfriend Caroline Ellison’s company Alameda was responsible for gambling and losing his company’s money – to which he was ‘oblivious’ until it was too late.

‘FTX technically wasn’t gambling with their money, FTX had just loaned their money to Alameda, who had gambled with their money, and lost it?’ Piper asked. ‘And you didn’t realize it was a big deal because you didn’t realize how much money it was?’

Bankman-Fried responded: ‘And also thought Alameda had enough collateral to [reasonably] cover it.’

‘It was never the intention,’ he later added. Sometimes life creeps up on you.’

When asked what he would’ve done differently if he got another shot, the FTX owner said he would ‘off-board Alameda from FTX.’

The FTX owner also walked back his previous comments about the importance of ethics and called it a ‘front.’
