SBF to be Arrested During A House Testimony Visit To the U.S.

After days of drama and tweet exchanges, Sam Bankman Fried, former CEO of FTX has finally stated that he will testify at a hearing held by the United States Senate to investigate the failures of FTX. Experts warn that his trip to the U.S. may result in an arrest.
FTX Ready to Testify
A Senate Banking Committee hearing was scheduled for this week on FTX’s bankruptcy. However, Bankman-Fried missed the deadline to respond the committee’s invitation. After Maxine Waters, a California representative threatened to subpoena Bankman-Fried, he agreed to testify before a House committee.


1) I do not have access or control over much of my data, personal or professional. There is a limit on what I can say and I won’t always be as helpful as I would like.
However, the committee believes it would still be useful so I am willing to testify on 13th.
