  • whether SBF testifying in Congress would have complicated the DOJ’s criminal case against him
  • why it is complicated to state how much prison time Sam is facing
  • the ways in which Bankman-Fried can reduce his sentence by cooperating with authorities
  • why it’s so unprecedented that the indictment came only one month after the collapse of FTX
  • whether other senior FTX executives are providing prosecutors with information to reduce their charges
  • the reasons why SBF is being held in The Bahamas and the likelihood of him being extradited
  • how much the case will be delayed if SBF’s lawyers fight the extradition
