The Department of Justice has announced it will not seek a second trial for FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried regarding alleged illegal campaign contributions of $100 million.

This decision contrasts with the treatment of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, who was indicted and imprisoned for $20,000 in illegal campaign donations.

Bankman-Fried was accused of directing illegal campaign donations and attempting to conceal the source of funds. (Trending: Trump Announces Heartbreaking Melania-Related Health Update)

Despite his conviction on fraud and conspiracy charges, the campaign finance allegations were not pursued due to extradition-related complications.

The article compares this situation with D’Souza’s case and discusses fines imposed on political campaigns for similar violations.

Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, said, “As our Office’s record reflects, we will investigate and prosecute violations of federal law, particularly those that undermine the integrity of the democratic electoral process, without regard to the defendant’s political persuasion or party affiliation. That is what we did in this case and what we will continue to do.”

It implies a potential bias in the handling of such cases based on political affiliation.
