Sam Bankman-Fried was called to testify on December 13 before the United States House Committee on Financial Services by its chairman Maxine Waters. However, the person concerned specifies that he “is not sure” that this will be possible on that date.
Sam Bankman-Fried to testify on FTX
The FTX case continues, and as customers seek justice, Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) was asked to testify before the United States House Committee on Financial Services by its chairperson Maxine Waters. Simply put, this entity is a division of the United States Congresswhich notably oversees the activities of the Federal Reserve (FED), the Treasury Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
It was therefore on Twitter, last Friday, that Maxine Waters requested the cooperation of SBF for an audition on December 13 :
“We appreciate that you have been candid in your discussions about what happened at FTX. Your willingness to speak to the public will help the company’s customers [et] Investors […]. To this end, we would be delighted to have your participation in our hearing on the 13th.”
Note, however, that the pseudo-franchise in question is all relativewhen we know all the truths that have been revealed since the explosion in flight of FTX.

Sam Bankman-Fried’s Lunar Response
When the president of a high authority of the state of which we are a citizen asks us to testify, it is customary to accept this invitation. However, it would seem that SBF is unaware of this use, and the person concerned allowed himself an evasive answer to Maxine Waters:
Rep. Waters, and the House Committee on Financial Services:
Once I have finished learning and reviewing what happened, I would feel like it was my duty to appear before the committee and explain.
I’m not sure that will happen by the 13th. But when it does, I will testify. https://t.co/c0P8yKlyQt

Sam Bankman-Fried says he will estimate that it will be his duty to come and testifybut that he must, before that, finish “to learn and examine what happened“. Hence, he “not sure if that will happen by the 13th”.
For the moment, Maxine Waters has not reacted, at least publicly. Beyond the fact that the formalities relating to such a serious matter take place on Twitter, this situation is surprising, when we know how much US regulators can get tough for less. These same regulators that SBF ordered to go crazy a few weeks ago.
