The ranking Democrat member of the House Financial Services Committee, California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, is already dodging important questions from reporters on breaking news of a massive Ponzi scheme carried out by Sam Bankman-Fried, a trader in worthless crypto currency, which was never made known by Wall Street regulators.
Instead, this unprecedented scandal was exposed by a competitor, leading to shocking revelations that a 30-year-old scammer used investor monies to the tune of millions for donations to Democrat candidates. In the same manner that Bernie Madoff stole more than $65 billion from his investors, this is how Bankman-Fried hopes to dodge criminal liability, and it begs the question, how much more would the latter have stolen if not for the fortuitous revenge exacted by this competitor.
Fortunately, Bahama authorities have temporarily blocked Bankman-Fried’s clandestine effort to move his collapsed businesses to Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) which has no extradition treaty with the United States. In reality, with U.S. authorities lagging on this vast crime spree, it buys time for Bankman-Fried to lobby for other modes of underworld immunity.
To be sure, while mainstream media continue to interview this con-artist for juicy details, the con-artist continues to patronize them with disclosures that he is occupied with video games during the emerging crisis. Indeed the New York Times published an interview which made it all look like a bad business decision. That article ignored the “elephant in the courtroom” which questions how any legitimate business enterprise could amass $32 billion in stated assets in such a short period. This is where Joe Biden’s 87,000 newly hired IRS agents should be assigned as opposed to small-time middle class.
The entire catastrophe leads to the inescapable conclusion that all of Washington is in some manner engaged in corruption and cover-ups until exposed by outside victims.
It would be nearly comical if not for the millions of dollars stolen from a wide range of unsuspecting investors who will never see their life savings restored. In a matter of days, reported assets of Bankman-Fried fell from $16 billion (yes, that’s billions with a “B”) to zero. This comes after the boy-scammer amassed twice that much while in his twenties. The question now becomes, will these Democrat beneficiaries return that donated money to innocent constituents or will they choose to cover up what may be the greatest financial-political scandal in American history?
This scandal should incite all Americans to get up in arms. Instead, law-abiding citizens have allowed themselves to become “deer in the headlights,” considered “stupid” and easily duped. Ominously, such con-artists are growing in number by the day to infect communities across the country. Indeed, even former president Bill Clinton fell for this scammer’s hollow investment promises.
Unfortunately, whistleblowers everywhere charged with a duty to uphold self-governing principles of our Constitution will instead remain timid by-standers more engrossed with such distractions as Tic-Toc, Amazon shopping and assorted social exchanges on the internet. So much for alternate accountability through secondary media and “citizen journalism.”
But there is hope. A concerned group has established a nonprofit organization known as the Citizen Commission Against Corruption, Inc. Through its timely creation in 2021, a trustworthy commitment has been made to set up offices and qualified staff across the country to investigate neglected complaints and hold wrongdoers duly accountable.
To make this patriotic commitment a reality, however, financial support is needed Check out the relevant website at http://www.citizencommissionagainstcorruption.org. You can also contact this author directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or (315) 796-4000 for more information.

Author Leon Koziol, J.D.
Dr. Leon Koziol is a civil rights advocate who practiced law for more than two decades in federal and state courts. He appeared on the CBS program 60 Minutes for his defense of landowners targeted for eviction by native-American tribes alleging violations of ancient treaties. As an upstate New York city corporation counsel, he secured a federal court verdict invalidating a mayoral gag order.
Relevant case citations include, Koziol v Hanna, 107 F.2d 170 (NDNY 2000); Patterson v City of Utica, 370 F.3d 322 (2nd Cir.2004); Oneida Indian Nation v County of Oneida, 132 F. Supp. 2d 71 (NDNY); Peterman v Pataki, 2004 NY Slip Op 51092(U) and Parent v State, 786 F. Supp. 2d 516 (NDNY 2011).
The latter was a consolidated case intended as a class action on behalf of victimized parents in divorce and family courts. It was part of the author’s bold challenge to judicial and sovereign immunity which led to severe retributions upon his law licenses and parent-child relationships. The horrific ordeal which led to a near death climax in 2020 was captured in his book, Whistleblower in Paris, published in 2021.
