Ghislaine Maxwell’s Lawyer Hired By FTX Founder

( )- It would appear that Sam Bankman-Fried, the disgraced founder of FTX, is getting ready to answer for his actions.

According to a recent article published by Reuters, Bankman-Fried has retained the legal services of attorney Mark Cohen, who practices at the New York-based company Cohen and Gresser.

Cohen, who had previously worked as an assistant United States Attorney, was a member of the legal team that defended the convicted trafficker of underage girls, Ghislaine Maxwell.

Maxwell was found guilty of engaging in sexual activity with minors.

Since Maxwell was ultimately found guilty and sentenced to 20 years in prison, it is a little perplexing why Bankman-Fried would hire an attorney who had recently emerged from a losing case.

Bankman-Fried indicated he recruited Cohen because he needed “advice of counsel and persons who are able to understand the circumstance and the context.” This was expressed in a recent Twitter Space.

Throughout the course of this week, Bankman-Fried has participated in a number of conversations that took place within Twitter Spaces.

According to reports, Bankman-Fried claimed that he did not know about the business dealings of Alameda (the trading arm of FTX), which effectively put his business partner Caroline Ellison in the position of being thrown under the bus.

After reading Bankman-Fried’s most recent statements, the former CEO of Alameda, Caroline Ellison, who is also rumored to be his ex-girlfriend, has reportedly sought legal representation as a result of what was previously published.

According to reports, Ellison has sought the advice of the Washington, District of Columbia legal firm WilmerHale, which is best known for the Government Affairs Department Chair, Jamie Gorelick, who served as the former No. 2 ranking member of the Clinton Justice Department.

Both Ellison and Bankman-Fried are getting ready to point the finger of blame at the other in court, and they plan to do it with the assistance of some of the most swampy attorneys the East Coast has to offer.
