Report: US Justice Department Widens Probe Into Alleged Perks Musk Received From Tesla
The findings come three weeks after news first broke that the US Department if Justice was reportedly investigating Tesla’s use of company resources on a house for Musk.
The US Attorney's Office was reported to have sought information about personal benefits paid to Musk, including how much Tesla spent on the project, destined for Austin, Texas, and what it was intended to be used for. The project was known internally as “Project 42.”
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has also opened a separate civil investigation into the project.
On the platform X, which Musk owns, he wrote: “Just want to reiterate that there is no glass house (metaphors don’t count lol) built, under construction or planned! I’m not building any house of any kind anywhere. Period.”
