Elon Claps Back With Humor and Legal Action Against Elizabeth Warren and Her Effort to Target Him

We’ve seen the Democrats have it in for Twitter owner Elon Musk.

What is his great crime? Buying Twitter so that liberals don’t control every piece of social media, and saying he cared about free speech.


But Democrats — who are heavily invested in having everyone believe the narratives they are pushing — were not happy with that.

As I reported about a week ago, the Republicans revealed that Ernst & Young (EY), the independent assessor engaged under a consent order between Twitter and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to evaluate Twitter’s privacy, data protection, and information security program, said they believed that the FTC was trying to improperly influence their assessment of the case to reach a negative conclusion when it came to Twitter. They reportedly said that they felt they would be retaliated against if they tried to pull out of the case. This, of course, would be incredibly improper if true. Musk termed it “insanely illegal overreach.”

Twitter has filed a motion for a protective order against what the FTC has been doing to them and is seeking to modify that order or be freed from it because of such biased actions against them. They asked the court to “rein in an investigation that has spiraled out of control.” The House Weaponization Committee also put the head of the FTC on the hot seat over this, demanding answers as to what they were doing by their actions.

Now Musk is also clapping back big time to try to stop the persecution. Twitter has announced that it intends to subpoena Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)’s communications with the Securities and Exchange Commission and the FTC, as part of their efforts to get the protective order quashed.


In the notice, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Francisco Division, attorneys for Twitter communicated the intent to subpoena Warren for all documents and other communications related to a letter the senator is said to have sent on July 17 to Securities and Exchange Commission chair Gary Gensler regarding Elon Musk.

X Corp., the new corporate name for Twitter, is seeking all documents relating to the SEC letter, including drafts, between Oct. 27, 2022 and the present, as well as all communication with the SEC relating to Musk and X Corp. during that time frame, the notice says.

Three days ago, Warren, a member of the Senate Banking, House, and Urban Affairs Committee, sent a letter to Gensler, calling on the SEC to open an investigation into Tesla and its board of directors’ alleged “failure to manage the actions of CEO Elon Musk in his dual role as CEO of Twitter and Tesla.” [….]

The letter alleged that Musk “has taken alarming steps that have undermined the integrity and safety of the platform, and announced new features despite clear warnings those changes would be abused for fraud, scams, and dangerous impersonation.”


Not only was Warren targeting Musk, but she was also wrong about him being the CEO, and she got a Community Note on her false claim into the bargain.

Musk also had some truly funny reactions to Warren’s post.

Warren is not going to like this, but that’s what you have to do with these characters: Fight fire with fire. You have to put them on the spot and back on their heels so they learn a lesson that they shouldn’t be doing this. So kudos to Elon, particularly as he’s reveling in a bit of humor at her expense.
