Skybridge Capital, the company founded by Anthony Scaramucci, has disclosed plans to repurchase a 30% stake it sold to FTX in the coming months. Scaramucci – who served as White House Director of Communications – told CNBC that Sam Bankman-Fried and his collapsed exchange may have committed fraud.
‘I think it’s very clear now that there was a fraud. We will, of course, have to let the legal system determine all of those things. “We are waiting for the clearance from the bankruptcy people, the lawyers, and the investment bankers to figure out exactly what we will be buying back and when,” Scaramucci said.
In September, SkyBridge invested $10 million in FTT as part of the deal that would see the exchange acquire 30% of the investment firm. Two months later, FTX filed for bankruptcy, going down with an estimated loss of $10 million in investor’s funds. Amid the chaotic collapse of the exchange, Scaramucci – who flew to the Bahamas on a rescue mission – said then he was distressed but did not want to call it a fraud yet.
