The founder of Space X and Tesla, who is also a billionaire, finally took off his sunglasses.
Musk objected to the SEC’s attempt to interview him, saying he had already done so twice, and accused the regulator of harassment.

If the SEC and Musk cannot agree on a date and time for the interview, Beeler said he will listen to both sides and decide for them.
Friction between Musk and the SEC began when the regulator sued him after he tweeted “funding secured” in 2018 in reference to a possible plan to take Tesla private. To resolve that case, Musk agreed that a Tesla lawyer would examine his tweets about the electric vehicle maker.
The SEC sued him again in 2019 for allegedly violating that provision.
Musk has asked the US Supreme Court to review the agreement, saying it violates his constitutional right to free speech.
