The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) last month revealed that it was investigating Elon Musk’s acquisition of social media company Twitter, now called ‘X’. However, Musk refused to attend an interview in September for the probe.
As reported by Reuters, the Commission on Thursday urged a federal judge to force billionaire Elon Musk to testify for its investigation into his $44 billion takeover of social media giant Twitter, now known as X.
In a document filed in federal court in San Francisco on Thursday, the SEC defended its efforts to compel Musk’s testimony, saying agency officials are indeed granted authority by law to seek testimony and documents as they pursue their investigative work.
The SEC has previously also noted that it has received new documents in the investigation since their last interview.
