Hillary. Comey. Brennan. Holder. Rice. All walking free and unfettered. But let’s make sure we immediately check into Tesla. Much higher priority.

Why are some so enamored with this snake-oil-salesman/huckster? The guy seems mentally unstable, at best.

MANY here are quite happy to swallow what Big Media is excreting, as long as it’s not DIRECTLY related to politics.

“Until I see proof otherwise...” is how they typically justify their faith in Big Media.

Unless of course, the subject is DIRECTLY related to politics, and they are not a “consistent” conservative who preferred Hitlery to Trump.

The FBI and DOJ and SEC, are big enough to handle a lot of "priorities". Tesla is just one of the minor investigations.

But, from the tone of your comments, it sounds like you have a stake in the company, or just gotta have your Tesla EV.

My prediction? Tesla will be GONE in less than 5 years, and perhaps in less than 2. It's a company that never should've existed, but, there are those that felt that Musk being the genius that many think he was/is, Tesla just couldn't fail. NOT!!!

Of all the stupid things to do.
There are far worse offenders out there than a guy in trouble with his car company.
DOJ must have a lot of free time on their hands.

Tesla will either be bankrupt or sold at a bargain basement price within two years. In either event, any shareholders who aren’t shorting the stock are going to get killed.

How does that impact on the fact that this wealthy fellow is mentally unstable? He managed to hire good people for the rocketry.
