Michael Lewis, a prominent author known for “The Big Short” and “Flash Boys,” revealed that the disgraced FTX founder, Sam Bankman-Fried, had considered the possibility of paying Donald Trump to refrain from running for president. According to Lewis, Sam Bankman-Fried researched the idea of offering 5 billion dollars for Trump not to run for the presidency. Lewis shared these claims in a CBS interview broadcast on Sunday.

Interestingly, Bankman-Fried thought not only about the financial aspect but also whether such a payment was legal. Lewis stated, “Sam’s question was not only ‘Is 5 billion dollars enough for Trump not to run?’, also ‘Was it legal?’

Bankman-Fried’s spokesman Mark Botnick, refused to comment on the potential payment. Before FTX’s collapse, Bankman-Fried actively donated to political campaigns, allegedly contributing to both Democratic and Republican politicians.

Bankman-Fried could face more than 100 years in prison if charged with various accusations, including fraud, in an upcoming trial. Political and financial issues relating to him continue to be examined prior to Bankman-Fried’s pending trial.
