In his first audible interview since the FTX collapse, Sam Bankman-Fried claimed he donated the same amount of money to both US political parties, but he did not disclose his Republican donations because the media would “freak the f*ck out.”
There is no way to corroborate the statements made by Bankman-Fried. Nevertheless, they don’t do him any kind of service. If he’s telling the truth, then his actions were driven by a desire to be liked by left-leaning media outlets. Contrastingly, if he’s lying, then this is yet another example of how dangerously deceptive Bankman-Fried could be.
