A representative for California’s 43rd District first reached out to Bankman-Fried on Dec. 2 and initially thanked the former CEO for being forthright about FTX’s collapse. The summons to testify was not a request or a subpoena.
Bankman-Fried responded Sunday that “having learned and gone over what had happened, I felt it my duty to appear before the committee and explain.” “I’m not sure it will happen on the thirteenth. But when it does, I will testify.”
Waters’ patience with Bankman-Fried seemed to be wearing thin as the congressman didn’t mince words about the importance of Bankman-Friend coming to Washington to testify.
“Ms. Waters, with all due respect – let’s stop flirting with the inevitable and cut the bullshit,” Bitmex VP Genia Mikhalchenko tweeted. Initiate the extradition process to return him to US soil where he can be prosecuted and convicted of gross and fraudulent misconduct. Send a subpoena.”
Mrs. Waters, with all due respect–let’s stop flirting with the inevitable and cut the nonsense.
Initiate extradition proceedings to return him to US soil where he can be prosecuted and convicted of gross and fraudulent misconduct.
