Elon Musk Responds to $354 Million Ruling in Trump’s Civil Fraud Case With One Simple Question


Musk Responds to $354 Million Ruling in Trump’s Civil Fraud Case With One Simple Question: ‘Who Is Supposed To Receive the Money?’

On Friday, following the verdict in former President Donald Trump’s civil fraud case, X and SpaceX owner Elon Musk questioned who the supposed victim was if all of the loans granted to Trump were paid back with interest.

The former president was found liable in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ civil suit against him and his companies, and he was ordered to “pay back” over $350 million after the case ended. James garnered significant backlash for pursuing the case, with claims that it was politically motivated as she had campaigned for the position, in part, on “getting Trump.”

Musk responded with a simple question in an X post. “Given that there were no victims with losses, who is supposed to receive the money?” asked Musk.

Musk has repeatedly expressed concern over the weaponization of the justice system under the Biden Administration and Democratic-controlled states.

“Difficult to explain to the public how this is not a double-standard justice system,” the tech mogul said earlier this month after special counsel Robert Hur declined to press charges in the case involving Biden’s mishandling of classified documents. While Hur conceded that Biden mishandled classified information, he argued that perspective jurors would view Biden as a feeble old man who is incapable of committing a crime.

Musk himself has been on the receiving end of several similar investigations since his purchase of Twitter, which was later converted to X. He is currently being sued by the Biden administration for allegedly discriminatory hiring practices at SpaceX. 

Prosecutors argued that Musk had failed to hire enough immigrants. Musk himself dismissed the suit as politically motivated, citing the government’s own regulations against allowing foreigners to work in military technology.

Additionally, Musk’s purchase of Twitter is still under investigation by the SEC. 

“The SEC seeks Musk’s testimony to obtain information not already in the SEC’s possession that is relevant to its lawful investigation,” the agency said when filing a subpoena this past October. “The SEC has followed all appropriate administrative steps required in seeking Musk’s testimony. In the face of Musk’s blatant refusal to comply with the SEC’s subpoena, the SEC now asks the Court to intervene and compel Musk’s compliance.”

Musk has called for overhaul of federal agencies to prevent political targeting.

“A comprehensive overhaul of these agencies is sorely needed, along with a commission to take punitive action against those individuals who have abused their regulatory power for personal and political gain,” he said shortly after the SEC investigation was launched.
