Will Biden Return 2020 Bankman-Fried Donations? White House Silent

  • White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre wouldn’t say Tuesday whether President Biden would ask his aides to return 2020 campaign contributions from accused cryptocurrency con man Sam Bankman-Fried.
  • The Justice Department charged him with swindling investors out of at least $1.8 billion.
  • Bankman-Fried, 30, was one of the Democratic Party’s biggest donors and even met with Biden’s White House advisers before his FTX currency exchange collapsed in one of the largest alleged frauds in American business history.
