“He is a master of deflection, and you see this often with con men who really believe they can convince the world of what they’re saying,” Murphy said.
Despite Bankman-Fried’s attempts at being “transparent,” the disgraced CEO isn’t actually answering reporters’ questions, according to Murphy. Last week, New York Times columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin probed Bankman-Fried, albeit with a significant number of “handicaps,” in place.
“Sam Bankman-Fried was not under oath. He wasn’t even in the same room, so you can’t really cross-examine him,” Murphy said, adding that although Sorkin asked a number of questions Murphy would have asked, Bankman-Fried continued to deflect.
“He would simply answer a completely different question,” Murphy said.
