Ex-FTX US president will share more information ‘in time’
He said in response to a tweet
Brett Harrison, the former head of bankrupt crypto exchange FTX US, plans to share in due course what he knew about the firm.
In response to a Twitter user who asked what he was aware of and when, Harrison stated: “I’ll share in time.” He didn’t respond to a follow-up question on whether he’s working with U.S. prosecutors.
Many others questioned why he was not in prison, to which he replied: "Use powers of inference."
Harrison joined FTX as president of FTX US in May 2021 and announced his departure at the end of September last year, just a few weeks before the FTX meltdown.
While Harrison has not been accused of any wrongdoing, FTX founder Sam-Bankman-Fried is not the only person responsible for the firm’s collapse.
Two of Bankman-Fried’s closest associates—former Alameda Research CEO Caroline Ellison and FTX CTO Gary Wang—both pleaded guilty to fraud charges in December.
Nishad Singh, FTX’s former director of engineering, and a housemate of Bankman-Fried, is also said to be engaging with federal prosecutors to get a cooperation deal.
