9:22 am
bank fraud. so far there's no information to bring you on when the auction will take place. according to a new report, the national enquirer paid $200,000 for those racy tasks between amazon ceo, and his mistress, and the report says it was sanchez's brother who gave them the information bezos and sanchez were in a relationship while he was still married, their relationship became a national enquirer cover story because of those text messages. he later announced that he and his wife of 25 years were divorcing. bezos also said the inquires publisher threaten to publish more explicit text if he didn't and an investigation to learn who leaked them. the sec is rejecting elon musk claims that the regulators trying to silence him. he is accused of breaking a settlement deal, forcing him to get preapproval for his tweets. washington post reporter has been following the story very
9:23 am
closely. he joins us live, good morning, drew. for the sec, to come out and say elon musk should be held in contempt, it kind of feels like a little bit of a power move. what is the sec trying to do here? >> the sec is effectively trying to bring this defined executive back into the fold and to agree with this major settlement, that would say, anytime before elon sent out a tweet with 25 million followers, he will get company preapproval before doing so. this was the deal, they both agreed to it. you long agreed, he agreed, but now he's pushing back against it. and the fight is heating up. the >> power move on both sides because if musk is tweeting at will, and like you said, not getting certain tweets approved, it basically seems like he's wrapping up at court order and throwing it back in the courts? >> yeah, elon musk has made,
9:24 am
it's very clear that he does not respect the sec, he's called them the short seller commission, he doesn't have to a abide by their rules. that's odd, to be the executive is executive of a $50 billion company like tesla. you don't see that often, it's become sort of an important moment, are they willing to do what they need to do to show that the financial rules have consequences, and that executives need to follow the rules or something that can happen. >> openeboss really walks away for breeder, right? take a few months with the company, what are you hearing on the potential impact of this sec versus musk battle? what's
9:25 am
the impact on tesla? >> that's the thing, tesla is elon musk. tesla depends on him as this chief visionary, chief marketer role. so the worry among even some tesla investors has been, if the sec does kick elon musk out the door, how does tesla fair? do they end up being a worse company than when it began. they are caught in the middle of this battle over whether he is too destructive to keep, or is he to necessary to abandon? i think that's going to be what is playing out as this heads to the court. >> i think there's a third angle two, that's cash, money, right? we're talking about investors. what are you hearing about?>> that's interesting because investors have always backed elon musk, because he is so pivotal to making the company famous. but even some of the top
9:26 am
investors have said, we are sick of the surprises, we are sick of the rude awakenings and the bad tweets, maybe it is time for either elon musk to take a different toll that's not ceo, mimi ab some visionary role or maybe have a board of directors actually do their job and keep him in line. you know, this is where the board should really be exercising their influence over the executive. we haven't really seen that much, at least publicly. so, some investors want to change, some investors say, let elon musk be himself. this is why we want him. he is a bulldog. he is a t the top of our company but i think it's going to be a harder argument to make as the sec steps up their fight. >> thinks the conversation. have a great rest of your day. coming up, a woman gives birth alone in a jail cell. >> completely outrageous, the
9:27 am
health of that baby, and that woman's life were put at risk. >> coming up next, state lawmaker calls for anodic and arctic an audit.
