Everytown tied up in the FTX crypto scandal?

In case you haven't been up to date of the massive scandal, start with this:

Before his cryptocurrency exchange collapsed, Bankman-Fried was a major financier of the Democratic Party.
MarketWatch reported, "SBF contributed more than $5 million to Joe Biden and groups supporting him during his 2020 presidential campaign. He said he was motivated by Biden’s 'generic stability and decision-making process.'

In short, also add in the aide money the US government was giving them and how the Ukrainians took $ and converted it to FTX crypto :

The sudden collapse of crypto exchange "FTX" and its Bankruptcy filing today, has revealed that FTX presently suffers from $10-$50 BILLION in liabilities with almost ZERO assets . . . and among those liabilities, are "investments" made by . . . . UKRAINE . . . .
At this early hour, it __appears__ that tens-of-billions in American "Military Aid" to Ukraine, which was allegedly to be used to fight Russia, was cash that Ukraine DID NOT use to fight Russia, but instead invested into FTX!
And, as you might guess from the Bankruptcy filing . . . . it now seems that a
