‘Question Worth Asking’: Musk on Claim DNC Benefited From FTX’s Crypto Implosion

African-American billionaire Elon Musk has weighed in on rumors that a cryptocurrency company that filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy was in bed with the Democrats.

The company, FTX, is currently going bankrupt and its founder, Sam Bankman-Fried, has reportedly fled the United States to the Caribbean as federal prosecutors consider charges.

Since the bankruptcy was revealed, it’s been alleged that Ukraine was a public investor in FTX, and it has been suggested that Volodymyr Zelensky’s government used taxpayer money from the United States to make these investments.

In turn, it is claimed, FTX used the money to invest heavily in the Democratic Party’s efforts during the 2022 midterm elections. Many note the curious timing of FTX’s implosion and Bankman-Fried’s departure from the United States, specifically, just a few days after the midterm elections.

Bankman-Fried spent over $40 million on the Democrats in 2022, and became the party’s second largest donor behind George Soros.

Now, Musk is weighing in on the issue after a popular cryptocurrency and NFT pundit Tara Bull raised the question, “Was FTX being used to launder money for the democratic party?” Bull noted that the World Economic Forum sponsored FTX on their website, “which has now been removed.”

Musk interjected, “A question worth asking.”

This is not the first time Musk has commented on Bankman-Fried, as previously he participated in a threat where users were shocked to discover the former crpyto wunderkind was allegedly playing League of Legends.

“Wtf he just played a league game,” wrote one popular Twitter user while posting a photo that seems to show Bankman-Fried’s performance on the video game.

As of this morning, it is being reported that federal prosecutors are eyeing Bankman-Fried despite the company’s offshore status in the Bahamas.

Regardless, the Wall Street Journal reports that the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office “is investigating FTX’s collapse” and Bankman-Fried’s role in the company.

Prosecutors would need to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Bankman-Fried intentionally sought to mislead investors, which the publication notes can be a high bar to reach.

    I believe he was arrested in the Bahamas at the airport before he could leave. There are whole countries tied up in this. He’s not going to get away even if the Dems do cover for him. They say this doesn’t effect the U.S.? Oh no? Than why do we even know about it?

    I know this will get lost in the comment section but sometimes at night I go to my backyard and roll over in the dirt and I pretend I’m a big carrot 🥕.. The neighborhoods come out to their back yards and yell out “ hey who’s there” I would like to answer but since carrots can’t talk, I remain quiet.

    If a compromised bank man could get fried, would Bankman-Fried get fried?

    If it’s true we now know where the Democrats get all their money because it certainly is not from the overwhelming vast majority of their constituents who Produce very little and most don’t have a pot to piss in. They have become dependent upon Soros and Gates and a few other socialist billionaires who made their money in the capitalist system they deplore.
