The organization, aimed at preventing another pandemic, was partly funded by SBF. The move to the US capital was meant to send the message that the FTX founder "and his network were in DC to stay," according to a report from Puck.

Just one week before FTX's collapse, Guarding Against Pandemics hosted back-to-back cocktail parties for high-ranking Democrats and Republicans, the New York Post reported.

Gabe reportedly stepped down from his position as head of Guarding Against Pandemics in mid-November, though his LinkedIn profile still lists him as the director of the organization.

"A lot of people in DC thought this was the next big thing," an unnamed source told NBC News. "Everybody was trying to get in. This went from the hottest thing to the most toxic thing. But that's how DC works."
