Here’s MAGA influencer Benny Johnson saying FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried’s arrest just a day before he was to testify to a House hearing about the crypto clusterfuck a “Ghislaine Maxwell situation,” referring to Jeffrey Epstein’s girlfriend/fellow pimp. This crazy asshole is all over the place in this 96 second clip, going from saying it’s all about Bankman’s sinister donations to Dems and something something corruption and he was arrested to cover up what he knows to that the entire scam being some kind of intel community false flag plot to control the crypto industry and offering sympathy to the foolish patsy. It’s quite the entertaining tale Benny’s got here.
Johnson of course is far from alone in lamely trying to reconcile that a guy they just knew was going to get away with it because of his donations to Dems is now facing decades in prison for a litany of charges including campaign finance fraud. Most of the red hatters are merely claiming it was to prevent him from testifying on Tuesday, which in the real world is probably more evidence that the government actually doesn’t coordinate with itself in such situations than evidence that it does. The reason cited is some vague boilerplate “cover up” bullshit like they expected this guy to blow the lid off some massive Democratic Party conspiracy like the one Johnson made up above.
Still others just “know” why. “SBF getting arrested isn’t a good thing. He was meant to testify under oath before Congress today who would then charge him with a crime. Prosectors just saved SBF from incriminating himself. It’s all a joke and they’ve all been paid off,” writes MAGA crypto influencer Layla Heilpern. Not sure what else we can add to that. It’s perfect on its own.
