Part of the story of Dems scoring key wins in 2020 and 2022 involved big campaign hauls. Their biggest donor NOT named Soros donated boatloads of money that was never his in the first place.
You might think that’s a straightforward case of fraud — especially in a political environment that spent years looking for ways to charge Trump with some kind of wire fraud in connection with raising money on his complaint that the election was not fairly conducted.
That would require a level playing field in which all parties are treated equally… something we’ve not seen in a long time.
Sam Bankman-Fried was directly responsible for wiping out not only his investors, but 130 affiliated companies that he had founded on the same day.
As DailyWire reported:
1. DOJ Lets Sam Bankman-Fried Off The Hook For Campaign Finance Fraud
The Department of Justice will not pursue campaign finance charges against the disgraced former crypto-king Sam Bankman-Fried after the DOJ learned that the U.S. hadn’t obtained permission from the Bahamas to extradite Bankman-Fried on that charge. Bankman-Fried, who ran the multi-million dollar crypto-investing firm FTX, was charged on eight counts, including fraud, money laundering, and campaign finance violations. He was a major Democrat donor. The change in his indictment came late Wednesday night.
Rapid Reaction: Is it any wonder trust in the U.S. government is slow when the infamous SBF gets treated like this by the DOJ? As TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk said, “There’s a very real chance that one of the worst scammers in American history will get a slap on the wrist.” — DW
You might wonder what the official rationale for dropping such obvious charges might be?
The campaign finance violation charge was among eight counts present in the DOJ’s original indictment—which also includes wire fraud, securities fraud and money laundering—in December.
In a filing late Wednesday addressed to New York federal judge Lewis Kaplan, the DOJ said they had been informed that Bahamas “did not intend to extradite the defendant on the campaign contributions count.” — Forbes
It’s not the only charge he’s had dropped against him.
Last month, federal prosecutors dropped five of 13 other charges against Bankman-Fried, including charges related to bank fraud and bribery of foreign officials. Prosecutors expect to be able to take up those five charges during a second trial set for March 11, 2024.
Bankman-Fried and his lawyers have been steadfast that the charges that came after his extradition from the Bahamas should not be permitted in court. He is currently under house arrest in his parents’ home in Palo Alto, California, awaiting trial this fall. — MSN
Oh, and let’s not forget the nasty little bit about witness tampering!
On Wednesday, Bankman-Fried appeared in federal court with his attorneys following accusations that he had shared documents with the New York Times to discredit his former partner, Caroline Ellison, who served as CEO of Alameda Research. During the hearing, Danielle Sassoon, an assistant US attorney, asked for the crypto boss to be jailed.
“It is the government’s view that no set of release conditions can secure the safety of the community,” she said. “… it appears to be undisputed the defendant provided the documents quoted [in the New York Times] … to discredit [Ellison].”
The DOJ claimed that Bankman-Fried provided documents to the New York Times to discredit Ellison. It was also revealed that Bankman-Fried had sent over 100 emails and had over 100 phone calls with a Times reporter who had written the article. — 247WallSt
How DARE anyone other than a Trump prosecutor use the power of the press to poison a legal case!
It’s a question of accountability.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
