Speaking on Twitter Space on Dec. 12, Sam Bankman-Fried stated that he is “not currently planning to speak at an upcoming Senate hearing” on Dec. 14.” Previously, SBF confirmed that he was willing to speak before Congress. However, recent revelations indicate that he is “open” if the Senate believes it is important he attends.
SBF had previously been called out by the Banking Committee, who affirmed that he “must” attend a Dec. 13 hearing. The committee chairman Sherrod Brown wrote that if SBF failed to honor the invitation, he would be issued a subpoena. At present, it is unclear if SBF will still attend the House Financial Services Committee hearing on December 13.
SBF was live on UnsualWhale’s Twitter space, linked below.
