Bankman-Fried comes off as sullen and cagey in his cross-examination in front of the jury.
Love your writing but multi-hour streams are not something I can do so hopefully we'll get more newsletters. Thanks for doing this.
I spent a large chunk of time yesterday listening to your marathon stream about this, thank you for doing that! It sounds like the jury don't believe him either, when he behaves like a petulant child.
Go Danielle! She sounds fantastic.
SBF tried something that In lawyer lingo is called a "negative pregnant." It is when a denial is made suspicious by its being too exact. For example, a traffic cop pulls you ever and says you were going 117 miles per hour and you respond by saying I was not going 117 miles per hour. This, of course, does not rule out your going 116 mph or 118 mph. It just makes things worse since it is so obvious and almost never works.
Given his situation, is this genuinely the best strategy, over admitting the quotes and trying to come up with some banal explanation? (We were only joking around! I gave advice to Caroline as a friend sometimes but it wasn't an instruction!)
Hey Molly, just want to make sure you're aware of my $50 bid for your signed 'Singh Under the Bus' drawing. If anyone wants it more, let the bidding begin.
Poor kid. Pleading the fiiiif (Dave Chappell) only worked when he was lying to congress. Easy mistake
Just listened to Michael Lewis's last (and apparently final) post...I'm afraid that he's become a bit delusional in his old age, conceding that Sam is highly likely facing conviction while maintaining he had more or less pure intentions, just unrealistic ambitions. And I think it's more than just Sam that he's been dazzled by, all the glitz and celebrity were also a large part of it. And here I always thought that beer googles only worked in dimly lit bars after midnight. To be honest, though, I admit that Katy Perry might dazzle me a bit too...
Sorry, Molly, but wouldn't this be a FT? I'm already talking to possible buyers...
