Former divorce lawyer Elon Musk departs at Tesla

"I want to be clear".

When Elon Musk sits down with an interviewer, something interesting is always bound to come out of the Tesla CEO's mouth, and his forthcoming interview with 60 Minutes is no exception.

Musk said he does not respect the SEC, but when asked if he would obey the settlement, he said: "Because I respect the justice system".

That caused a brief spike in Tesla's share price, leading so-called short-sellers, who have been betting on the stock crashing for years, to lose millions.

In a post on Twitter sharing "Tesla history trivia", Musk said that the co-founders bought the name from Siewert in 2004.

The SEC had also demanded oversight of the mercurial Musk's social media use.

"It's not realistic in the sense that I am the largest shareholder in the company", Musk said in an interview with CBS' "60 Minutes", broadcast Sunday evening.

"The only tweets that would have to be, say, reviewed would be if a tweet had a probability of causing a movement in the stock", he said.

"Well, I guess we might make some mistakes". He also said that he handpicked Robyn Denholm as Tesla's new board chair, and that in addition to not wanting to be chairman again, he would prefer "to have no titles at all". He was five years in the service of the maker of electric cars, and is not the first high-ranking person in the door at Tesla behind him, departs.

Musk also said he doesn't "really want to try to adhere to some CEO template".

Robyn Denholm, an Australian telecommunications executive, was appointed chairwoman of Tesla's board last month, replacing Musk as part of as part of a securities fraud settlement with USA government regulators.
