Sam Bankman-Fried and FTX Cronies Gave $300k to House Committee Members Investigating Him. By Chuck Ross.
Sam Bankman-Fried and executives at his cryptocurrency firm contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to members of the House committee that will hold hearings next month on the company’s collapse.
Bankman-Fried and his co-founders at FTX contributed $300,351 to nine members of the House Financial Services Committee, according to Federal Election Commission records. Some of the largest contributions were to Democrats on the committee’s Digital Assets Working Group, which worked on regulation of the crypto industry.

Way to go Maxine! Come see the corruption — bribes right out in the open!
Remember those people who walked into the Capitol on J6, got thrown in jail including solitary confinement for months before trial? They weren’t on the right team and didn’t pay off the right people.
