Former Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook recently testified that Hillary OK’d the dissemination of unproven ‘Russia collusion’ rumors to the media during the 2016 Presidential campaign.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who has been on something of a spiritual or political awakening in recent months, took to Twitter to vent his anger over the bombshell revelations.
What may be surprising to some readers, is that Musk says he just learned about the ongoing Durham-Sussmann trial, in which Mook testified, last month.
The trial involves cyber security lawyer Michael Sussmann, who is accused of making a false statement to the FBI at the behest of Hillary’s campaign.
“Sus man,” Musk said in a tweet, a play on the word ‘suspect’ and the name of the former Clinton campaign attorney at the forefront of the Russia collusion hoax.
In a tweet that might easily have been flagged by Twitter as disinformation just months ago, Musk tweeted a link to a BBC article on the Sussman trial saying, “Bet most people still don’t know that a Clinton campaign lawyer, using campaign funds, created an elaborate hoax about Trump and Russia. Makes you wonder what else is fake.”
It’s difficult for the average person to know what’s going on in the Sussmann trial considering mainstream media is reticent to mention the trial at all. A Fox News investigation found that MSNBC, ABC News, NBC News and CBS News have barely mentioned the trial since it began on May 15.
Following the shocking Mook testimony on Friday, Fox News did a transcript search for the trial and found no mentions on the four outlets’ televised programs.
But Musk’s wasn’t done talking about Russiagate.
Musk has been ruffling all sorts of feathers since he began the process of purchasing Twitter. In addition to his deal to acquire the company for $44 billion and restore it as a free speech platform, Musk also admitted that he is a former Democrat who will now vote Republican in the next election.
In response to the Sussmann trial Musk explained that he voted for and donated to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign before he was aware of her role in the Trump-Russia hoax.
“Sussmann himself admitted billing Clinton Campaign to pay for him to present Russia hoax to FBI! This is not even questioned by the defense,” Musk stated in a Tweet that tagged Hillary Clinton and Twitter.
“I donated to & voted for Hillary, so am doubly pissed off about those funds being used for lying.”
In response to Musk’s thread on the trial, Jan Jekielek, Senior Editor of the Epoch Times, shared an infographic with Musk that breaks down the entire “Spygate” saga.
“Confusing-gate, more like it!” Musk joked in response.
“Bottom line: A prominent lawyer working for the Clinton campaign fabricated Russia-Trump collusion using a retired MI6 spy & some actual Russians. This is not ok! There may have been actual Russian interference, but still the above is not cool.”
Hillary tweeted on October 31, 2016, just days before the election, that “Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank.”
A judge ruled on Friday that Hillary’s October 31 tweet could be entered into the case as evidence in the Sussmann trial.
Musk, newly unfettered, called her tweet a “Clinton campaign hoax.” Musk’s response brings into question Twitter’s moderation policy during the 2016 election, given the shenanigans that were played with the New York Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop in 2020.
He later tagged Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal and Vijaya Gadde, Twitter’s Legal, Policy and Trust Lead, to bring the question up to them.
“Doesn’t exactly scream ‘trustworthy,'” Musk tweeted.
He concluded his thoughts on the trial by concluding that, “I am indeed out for blood.”
In a final flurry of Tweets on Friday, Musk produced a call to arms for lawyers to join a newly formed litigation department at Tesla. As has become the norm for Musk tweets, the context of these four tweets remains a mystery, but the timing is interesting.
“Tesla is building a hardcore litigation department where we directly initiate & execute lawsuits. The team will report directly to me,” Musk proclaimed. “Please send 3 to 5 bullet points describing evidence of exceptional ability.”
“Please include links to cases you have tried,” he replied to his own tweet. “Looking for hardcore streetfighters, not white-shoe lawyers like Perkins or Cooley who thrive on corruption. There will be blood.”
Bloomberg published a story claiming that Musk’s litigation department tweets were spurred by the Friday release of Elon Musk’s Crash Course, a documentary alleging the COO of Tesla has oversold the companies’ automated self-driving capabilities.
Other news sources speculated that the tweets were in response to a sexual harassment claim that surfaced a day after Musk announced his switch to the Republican Party.
In his tweet, however, Musk references the law firm Perkins, which is the firm connected with Michal Sussmann. Musk mentions for the second time in one day that “there will be blood,” which he previously tweeted in reference to the Sussmann trial.
Despite Musk’s new-found political convictions and the ire that has caused in the mainstream media, Tesla reported its most profitable quarter in company history last quarter.
For Elon Musk maybe there really is no such thing as bad publicity.
