Crypto-Scammer Sam Bankman-Fried Returns To The U.S. And Gets Freed On Bail – Unlike J6 Defendants

Sam Bankman-Fried, the Democrat party donor who basically stole billions of dollars from innocent investors, returned to the United States this week.

Unlike the J6 defendants who have been held in solitary confinement for months and months, Bankman-Fried was granted bail and will remain largely free until his sentencing hearing.

His parents put up ‘part’ of the value of their home to the tune of $250 million. Must be nice.

Bankman-Fried stepped out of U.S. District Court in Manhattan, flanked by his parents, his legal team, and court security at 2:19 local time.

The terms of his personal recognizance bond were agreed to by prosecutors and Bankman-Fried’s lawyers. The 30-year-old will face his next hearing, presided over by Judge Ronnie Abrams, in New York City on Jan. 3., where he’ll enter his plea and be arraigned.

A recognizance bond is a written commitment from the accused to appear in court when ordered. In return, Bankman-Fried’s camp would not be required to meet the full collateral requirements of the bail.

The bond was secured by equity in his family home, and by the signatures of his parents and two other individuals with “considerable” assets.

In addition to the $250 million package, which prosecutors called “the largest-ever pretrial bond,” the former crypto billionaire would also be required to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet, submit to mental health counseling, and restrict himself to travel within and between the Northern District of California and the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.

It looks like his political connections paid off.

Do you think he’d be free on bail if he was a Trump supporter?

Fat chance.
