According to reports such as Bloomberg and AFP communication, Tesla told the Department of Justice that it is requesting submission of arbitrary documents, while admitting that it is cooperating, while telling that they have not received subpoena, testimony etc about. There is also a report called "Criminal Investigation", but it seems that Tesla did not say that the investigation by the Justice Department was criminal or civil.

The Justice Department has not announced any comments on this matter.

Incidentally, Mr. Mask is involved with Twitter, and a lawsuit has also been filed against Mr. Vernon Answorth of British diver. The trigger was a case in which boys and soccer teams were isolated in June 2018 due to water increase in Thai cave. At that time, Mr. Mask made a tweet saying that a mini submarine might be available for rescue.

However, Mr. Answorth, who was engaged in rescue activities, cut it off as being a selling act by Mr. Mask. Meanwhile, Mr. Maslare slander Mr. Answorth as "Pedo Guy (pedophile)" and so on. Once I deleted the tweet and apologized to Mr. Answorth, I was steaming the topic again.
