The Gateway Pundit reported on the recent SEC filing regarding FTX that failed to mention the amount of donations by FTX to corrupt politicians.
On Saturday, a source allegedly told The New York Times that top Democrat officials have been asked to provide information regarding donations from Sam Bankman-Fried and two former executives at disgraced cypto company.
Prosecutors investigating accused crypto grifter Sam Bankman-Fried have demanded information from high-level Democrats — including the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and New York Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, the incoming House minority leader — to help prove their sprawling case, according to a report.
Top Dem lawyer Marc E. Elias, who represents a long list of political campaigns and super PACs, received an email from the United States attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York asking for details about donations received from Bankman-Fried, sources told the New York Times on Saturday.
Unnamed Republicans and other Democratic campaigns received similar messages, the sources said.
Bankman-Fried, 30, who was arrested in the Bahamas Monday on a raft of felony charges in the wake of the November collapse of his FTX crypto exchange, allegedly siphoned off $1.8 billion dollars of customer cash, using some of it to become the Democrats’ second-largest individual donor — behind billionaire businessman George Soros — in the 2022 election cycle.
