Ex-crypto golden boy Sam Bankman-Fried is set to face a blistering cross-examination by Manhattan federal prosecutors Monday — and then a planned mysterious “rebuttal” witness.
The MIT grad, 31, coolly tried to weasel out of blame in court Friday for his alleged $10 billion theft from FTX investors, claiming he knew “basically nothing’’ about cryptocurrency when he started his business and that it imploded because of “mistakes,’’ not crimes.
But he won’t be able to dodge getting slammed by prosecutors under cross-examination when his criminal trial resumes Monday morning.
Prosecutors also hinted Friday that they then plan to call a “rebuttal” witness after he leaves the stand.
