Trump’s Bond was Higher than Sam Bankman-Fried and Bernie Madoff’s Combined

Here we take a look at the $454,000,000 bond that was being required of Trump compared to the bond amounts that were set for criminals that were guilty of the largest financial crimes in U.S history.

Bernie Madoff – the infamous financier, was at the center of one of the most notorious Ponzi schemes in history.

In 2008, Bernie Madoff was arrested on a criminal complaint alleging securities fraud. He had orchestrated a massive $50 billion Ponzi scheme.

His bail was set at $10 million. The amount was secured by various family homes held in his wife’s name.

Ultimately, Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in federal prison, where he passed away in April 2021 at the age of 82.


Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) – the former crypto mogul and founder of FTX, was involved in a massive financial scandal. Bankman-Fried’s bond was set at $250 million bond after appearing in Manhattan federal court.

Federal prosecutors revealed that SBF used money he stole from customers of his FTX cryptocurrency exchange to make more than $100 million in political campaign contributions before the 2022 U.S. midterm elections.

SBF leveraged this influence to lobby Congress and regulatory agencies, aiming to support legislation and regulations beneficial for FTX’s operations

Charges and Indictment:

  • SBF faces seven counts of conspiracy and fraud related to FTX’s collapse.
  • the indictment also accuses him of conducting an illegal campaign finance scheme as part of the broader fraud and money laundering allegation.

  1. Trump’s bond being higher than the criminals involved in the LARGEST FINANCIAL CRIMES IS U.S. HISTORY says it all.
    If you don’t see a political witch-hunt you are dumb or crazy or both.

  2. Rob Arnold says:

    WPCS is 100% correct, this says. it. all.

    Suppression of the actual truth, while punishing those who dare speak it, is the calling card of the oppressor. It seems this all comes down to Donald John Trump, and his supporters, versus COMMUNIST villains and malefactors. It is a dangerous battle, and it is on – and to be clear, it is the United States of America itself that is at stake.

    Witch Hunt – an attempt to find and punish a particular group of people who are being blamed for something, often simply because of their opinions and not because they have actually done anything wrong.

  3. If the Democrats were THIS tough on crime they would not need to ban guns because all the criminals would be in jail with $500,000,000 bonds.
