Bad Idea: Bankman-Fried to take the stand

Staring down a potential 100 years in prison if convicted, notorious bad decision-maker Samuel Bankman-Fried intends to take the stand in his fraud case tomorrow. Thus far, court watchers have been critical of Bankman-Fried's defense, and wow, is this a risky move!

Thus far, Bankman-Fried being outspoken has landed him in jail for witness tampering.


Sam Bankman-Fried will testify at his criminal fraud trial on Thursday as he faces charges of fraud, conspiracy, and money laundering related to his failed cryptocurrency exchange FTX.

During a conference call on Wednesday, attorney Mark Cohen confirmed Bankman-Fried will take the stand. The move isn't much of a surprise, considering the time Bankman-Fried spent speaking on his own behalf between the collapse of FTX last year and his eventual arrest last December.
