Prosecutors in Sam Bankman-Fried trial compare defense argument to ‘Dumb and Dumber’
Prosecutors in the trial of Sam Bankman-Fried have compared defense arguments to the hit movie “Dumb and Dumber”, which features the two main characters blindly chasing after a dream that is ultimately out of their reach. In this particular case, the defendant is facing charges of fraud and money laundering through his cryptocurrency company FTX. The prosecutors have argued that the defendant’s arguments are based on false logic, much like the characters of the movie that fail to consider the consequences of their actions. The defense has, however, argued that Bankman-Fried was simply trying to make a quick profit in the volatile cryptocurrency market, and that the transactions in question were actually legitimate.
