SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, has weighed in on ongoing reports of the 2016 presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton to fabricate evidence of alleged collusion between the campaign of rival Donald Trump and Russia.

Issuing his opinion via Twitter – the social media platform that he is currently in the process of purchasing – the Tesla and Space X CEO agreed with reports provided by U.S. intelligence agencies that Russian interference may have played a part in the outcome of the 2016 election, but noted that the indictment of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann on charges of lying to the FBI painted the entire situation with a veneer of doubt.

“Confusing-gate, more like it!” Musk tweeted on May 21. “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.”

Musk had been responding to another tweet that had claimed that information regarding Sussmann’s trial – which entered its second week on Monday – have been suppressed on Twitter, and that only the South African tech tycoon’s high degree of prominence on the platform was getting the word out.


Big Tech is using a content filtering system for online censorship.

NewsGuard works with Big-Tech to make it harder for you to find certain content they feel is 'missing context' or stories their editors deem "not in your best interest" - regardless of whether they are true and/or factually accurate. They also work with payment processors and ad-networks to cut off revenue streams to publications they rate poorly by their same bias standards. This should be criminal in America.

“I guarantee that @elonmusk tweeting about Sussmann is the first time the vast majority of people on this website have ever heard of him, and probably John Durham as well. Twitter has been suppressing tweets about the trial all week,” user Shem Horne tweeted.

I only heard about it last month and was blown away,” Musk replied.

Sussmann was indicted by the office of Special Counsel John Durham in September 2021 over allegations that he lied to the FBI in 2016 when he had given evidence of a back channel link between the Trump Organization and a Russian bank with ties to the Kremlin.

While claiming to represent himself only, prosecutors allege Sussman was actually presenting the evidence on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and an unnamed executive at a major tech company.

Musk’s tweet also referenced Christopher Steele, a retired British MI6 spy who was paid by the Clinton campaign – by way of a consulting firm Fusion GPS – to create the so-called “Steele dossier,” a now-discredited document which alleged connections between Trump and Russia in an effort to discredit him during the 2016 presidential race.
