…. On Twitter, people are calling [Bankman-Fried] the “millennial Madoff,” comparing him to one of the world’s most notorious fraudsters. (He has not yet been charged with any crimes.)
Dr. Lerner — who is not bound by doctor-patient confidentiality in his capacity as a coach at FTX, as he is in his role as psychiatrist — said he was shocked by the suggestion that Mr. Bankman-Fried was a criminal mastermind.
“I just can’t see him doing that, honestly,” Dr. Lerner said. “I mean, I guess maybe I would have to sit down with him and understand why. But I have difficulties making that jump.”
