    There are very simple and clear definitions of whistle blower. Installing spy software and using account details of your colleagues are not in this list. Mass uploading confidential information Manning style neither.
    If you want to report some illegal actions you do it to respective agency. There are actually very specific rules about it.
    BTW removing manufacturing lines, and spoiling a shift worthy of equipment is not "illegal", and is neither public information. But it definitely can be counted as financially sensitive information for traders or concurrents.
    All auto companies at one or another point of their activities do that. every auto company was killing robot lines a number of times (even Munroe mentioned one such case), Ford just killed a number of manufacturing lines. Bolt line has difficulties during first months of operations.
    Idea of installing faulty batteries can come only to some completely clueless journo. It's amazing that this is still stated in their claims.
    There was no investigation, reporter reinterpreted data, adding his ideas as a fact, "consulted" "expert" and published yet another hit piece.
    I remind that's these are the people who claim that Tesla had 46000k employees.

    Either of such claims have to be verified through third parties.
    Installing software of any kind in embedded systems is sabotage, and can be considered as an intention to cause "damage ". That is actually is in the definition of embedded systems. You can thank MS.
    You are required to present a direct quote in Musk letter where he "was implying that this gigafactory employee somehow had something to do with the vent fire in Fremont". If you won't be able to do it, and you won't because he never implied that I will ask moderators to ban you. The insistence with spreading FUD and plain lies is impressive. How much do they pay you?

    So they have no case, but they have a premise and are now searching for data to support it?
    Fail.
    Time for engineer Ralph Wiggins, the rocket building suspension engineer, to drop a dime and add some chum to the water...:)

    Oh come on now @adaptabl , if you are going to disagree with the 3 line post, at least put in the effort to refute it.

    Tripp's position, more or less: "I was a whistleblower with proof of bad things"
    Why then does his lawyer need people to provide evidence of bad things?
    Are they claiming that Tesla cannot have helped SpaceX at all? What of the case where SpaceX provided MORE help to Tesla than Tesla did to SpaceX?

    Does anyone else recall the use of SpaceX imaging tech when there was an internal (hidden) build issue with the Model 3?

    Given his posts, I suspect adaptabl is a UAW-sponsored troll. Just ignore him, you will be happier and healthier for it.

    Tripp has this nasty habit of trying to delete things that are inconvenient to him. Unfortunately, he's forgotten that the internet doesn't really like "deletion". He previously tried to delete his accounts on other sites that showed that - contrary to his assertions - he knows how to code and uses hacking tools, and is a NRA / gun fan. He's since tried to sterilize his twitter account to present a wholesome image.

    But...

    Funded by shorts with a financial interest in him damaging Tesla, of course:

    My favourite part is where he pretends that him answering coding questions from *other people* is just him learning to code (and that he's forgotten everything and no longer knows how to code), and that gun documents were just to trade for guitar tabs. Because you know, that's a totally normal internet trade commodity! ;)

    Now he tries to hide all of his previous exchanges. This guy is a joke.
