Can it get any clearer than this??!!

Sam Bankman-Fried And FTX Cronies Gave $300k To House Committee Members Investigating Him

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.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.), who chairs the committee (pictured 3rd from left), announced a probe this week into FTX’s collapse after the company declared bankruptcy, wiping out billions of dollars in customers’ portfolios.
