Is Musk Going To Pi** off the SEC Again? #135
Musk and the SEC have more of a hate-hate relationship than a love-hate relationship, and of course, the SEC has gone after him before. During his attempt to take Tesla private in 2018 he tweeted out “funding secured” which led the SEC to file a lawsuit against him as they felt he was exaggerating, and they fined him, and Tesla, $20M USD each (Musk bought $20M in shares from Tesla to cover their part of the fine and has since made that money backhand over fist).

But will other corporate treasuries copy Tesla's latest move?
