Former Alameda Research CEO Caroline Ellison was spotted at a coffee shop in NYC.
Caroline Ellison was formerly the CEO of Alameda Research which was formerly the trading arm of the now-disgraced cryptocurrency platform FTX.
After it was discovered Alameda was fraudulently “borrowing” money from customers’ accounts to fund bets with Alameda, Caroline Ellison went completely silent.
However, Ellison seems to not be troubled about the FTX scandal and was seen walking freely around Manhattan.
PLEASE CONFIRM: A user claims that they spotted Caroline Ellison at Ground Support Coffee on West Broad in SoHo Manhattan at 8:15 AM. This would mean she is not in Hong Kong and is in NY not in custody. pic.twitter.com/QUduYO9GfZ

Here’s a picture for context:
Caroline Ellison (CEO of Alameda) has been found in NYC.
Caroline was spotted just 6 min away from FBI headquarters… but why?
Should SBF (CEO of FTX) be worried?

Ellison is also reportedly lawyering up and even reportedly hired a former Clinton lawyer after SBF recently claimed he had no knowledge about Alameda’s business dealings and virtually threw Caroline under the bus.
Zero Hedge reported
Caroline is two steps ahead of SBF and is already cooperating with members of the DOJ, and specifically the SDNY, which we previously reported is probing the collapse of FTX.
Subsequent reports have only reinforced this rumor, and the latest is that Ellison is being represented by DC law firm, WilmerHale best known for its Government Affairs Department Chair, Jamie Gorelick, who was the former No. 2 ranking member in the Clinton Justice Department, and in a recent interview, she referred to Garland as her “wingman.”
The Gateway Pundit previously reported Caroline Ellison’s father is a professor at MIT who just so happen to teach alongside the current head of SEC Gary Gensler.
Gensler was previously the CFO for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential run.
Currently, Sam Bankman-Fried is still in the Bahamas and isn’t expected to return anytime soon due to fear of facing a possible arrest.
