Matthew Whitaker, Donald Trump’s interim replacement for Attorney General, once backed a time-travel cryptocurrency, according to a report.
The now-defunct company paid Whitaker at least $10,000 in 2014, according to court filings seen by Mother Jones, in essence, to serve on its advisory board as it attempted to market the cryptocurrency project, as well as a series of other bizarre inventions.
The Federal Trade Commission filed a complaint against the World Patent Marketing last year, with regard to people who had ended up in debt or had lost their life savings as a result of their involvement with the firm. However, a Florida court ordered the company to shut down and pay a $25 million settlement early this year in May.
I would only align myself with a first-class organization, “As a former US Attorney,” he said in a 2014 press release issued by World Patent Marketing.
“World Patent Marketing goes beyond making statements about doing business ‘ethically’ and translate those words into action.”
The Time Travel X endeavor seems to have also had the backing of Dr. Ronald Mallett, a theoretical physicist and faculty member of the University of Connecticut.
“For years now, Dr. Mallett has conducted research on time travel based on Einstein’s Theory of Relativity,” a video published in 2016 by World Patent Marketing (WPM) explained.
“WPM’s founder and successful entrepreneur Scott Cooper has built a financial instrument to fund Dr. Mallett’s research. Time Travel Technologies gives you the opportunity to fund the research that will help to make time travel possible.”
The Independent had already reached out to Dr. Mallett for a comment on Time Travel X but is yet to receive a response from him.
However, Mathew Whitaker, who was appointed acting attorney general by President Donald Trump on Wednesday, could not also be reached for comment through the US Department of Justice as reported.
