The Biden administration is getting increasingly desperate to block Elon Musk’s buyout of Twitter, according to a new report.
Jennifer Jacobs reported:
Elon Musk reacts to Biden officials’ discussions, still at early stage, on what tools, if any, are available to let federal govt to review his ventures. “It would be hysterical if the government stopped Elon from over paying for Twitter 😂,” a reader tweeted. @elonmusk: “💯🤣.”

Elon Musk had a simple reaction to the report on Twitter.

Occupy Democrats earlier in the night had put out the talking points, based on Trump second impeachment star witness Fiona Hill’s discredited word.
If you’re terrified that Twitter is about to be bought by Elon Musk, a man who U.S. national security expert Fiona Hill just declared is an “intermediary” who is “transmitting messages from Putin,” please RT & join https://t.co/IO2pIBwKJt, a new pro-democracy Twitter alternative!

Elon Musk responded earlier to unsubstantiated reports that he had a discussion with Russian President Vladimir Putin before advocating peace between Russia and Ukraine on Twitter.
No, it is not. I have spoken to Putin only once and that was about 18 months ago. The subject matter was space.

When asked if a Vice News report that he spoke with Putin was true, he said: ‘No, it is not.”
According to the unconfirmed report, Elon Musk had met privately with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Ian Bremmer, who provided his account in an email to Eurasia Group subscribers.
As reported by Business Insider, “Musk told Bremmer that Putin said he was ‘prepared to negotiate’ under the conditions that Crimea remains under Russian control, that Ukraine remained neutral, and that Russia’s annexations of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia were enforced.”
On Thursday, Musk sent a huge warning shot to ‘Woke’ Twitter employees ahead of his buyout offer for the social media giant, a deal that is expected to close next week.
