Sam begman freed who uh you know who's Crypto platform crumbled and who might Be facing some serious issues Considering uh the brokerage firm that He founded was taking money from Depositors uh of the crypto platform and Basically losing it through their Investments Is saying no I actually didn't just Donate money to Democrats I did donate a Lot of money to democratic candidates on The record but I also contributed a lot Of money to Republicans as well I just Did it through dark money contributions And so if what he's saying is true and To be quite honest I don't know what to Believe with this guy he seems like a Liar he seems like one of the most Dishonest people on the planet but Nonetheless Um that was from his interview with Tiffany Fong an independent crypto Journalist and the interview was Recorded on November 16th and then Published two days later uh he was Speaking at an event and of course as Always he discloses way too much and he Did so right there now if he's telling The truth okay take a look at this list Of the biggest donors in the 2022 Midterm cycle up until September of 2022 Okay so if Sam bankman free donated as Much to Republicans as he did to Democrats then he was the fourth biggest

Donor to Republicans Just think about that yeah so look uh I Love this story because this is a crime Scene and it's like a CSI version of What happens in Washington and here's The criminal himself explaining it and He explains every part of the scheme and It matches what we've been telling you For the last 20 years here on dyt he Says you give to both Republicans and Democrats that way you neuter both of Them and in fact in an earlier exchange That he had with a box reporter when he Uh the Box reporter asked is it for PR Reasons He said yeah just PR F The Regulators he Was pretending that he was giving money To Democrats because he wanted Regulation of FTX Of course he didn't want regulation of FDX because he was taking all the Customer money and now a million people Are owed money a million okay he took Their money and then he gambled with it For himself and why was he allowed to do That until he lost it all Because he'd already paid off the Republicans and the Democrats and here He is explaining the crime to you guys And then he says now look this is Important Citizens united happened everybody knows How bad it is theoretically but nobody Ever talks about the dark money as if it

Doesn't exist but it does exist I mean He's right about that exactly now why Does no nobody ever talk about we talk About it all the time it's because Mainstream media never talks about it Because they're corporate owned and Where does the money go in these Midterms the sambang Manfred apparently Gave 80 million dollars to both Republicans and Democrats in 40 each It went almost all to TV and to Media 17 Billion dollars in total these elections Went straight to mainstream media so Mainstream media of course told you Didn't didn't tell you where the money's Coming from because it's coming from Crooks like Sam bankman freed they're Part of the crime and he says you give To the Democrats to get good PR and then You give to the Republicans because you Want the Republicans and the Democrats To both cheat on your behalf and make Sure they protect you okay In a sense the Democrats and the Republicans are the mob and you're Paying them protection money let me Rob All these people let me Rob these Million people he owes three billion Dollars right now okay let me take Billions off of them and then you give Me protection and Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell go yes And of course what is the Press do Before he was caught Sam Beckman freed

An American hero giving all this money To the Democrats to fight back against Fascism [Laughter] Wait why is he giving only to corporate Democrats and he's giving against all The progressives in the primaries Because the progressives are the only Ones who would have actually regulated Him that's why he spent Millions against Nina Turner who's now one of our hosts And he was in that race and he gave Chantel Brown all that money through uh Paxton that's right yep and Chantel what Did you promise him now everybody in Washington thinks that's a red line Don't talk about the are you saying Chantel Brown is corrupt thousand Percent yes that's exactly what I'm Saying she she was so happy to receive That Pac money on her behalf because you Said yeah of course I won't regulate you Of course of course what do you think They paid all those Democrats millions Of dollars for for charity no for Corruption And he just told you yeah and on Chantel Brown I mean Would she be a darling of the Establishment Democratic party if she Weren't corrupt I mean think about it I mean there's a Reason why the establishment Democrats Were so vicious toward Nina Turner in

Both times she ran both times and I want To be clear about that so when Nina ran Chantelle Brown was a nobody nobody it Was like 12 people running against the Intern nobody knew and the Democratic Leadership came in and said okay who Raise your hand if you are going to take Tons and tons of Pac money she won't Tell Brian I was like me me me do Anything I'll do anything for Pac money And they're like good we're picking her They picked her out of her goddamn hat Yep the total utter nobody and they Loaded her up with millions and millions Of dollars of sandbankment Freed's money Uh Israeli Lobby money and that's just The fact Democratic majority for Israel Bragged about how they how we took out Another Progressive who who did we give The money to oh shantelberg who cares Any corrupt Democrat would have done She's just a a filler right and but it's Not about her it's about all of the Democrats that take the money all those Guys that took money from guys like Sam Bankman freed are Crooks and the Press Never tells you that thanks for watching The Young Turks who really appreciate it Another way to show support is through YouTube memberships you'll get to Interact with us more there's live chat Emojis badges you've got emojis of me Anna John Jr so those are super fun but You also get playback of our exclusive
