Elon Musks legal team is demanding to listen to from the whistleblowing former Twitter executive who may help bolster Musks case for backing out of a $44 billion deal to get the social media marketing company

WILMINGTON, Del. — Elon Musk’s legal team is demanding to listen to from Twitter‘s whistleblowing former security chief, who may help bolster Musk’s case for backing out of a $44 billion deal to get the social media marketing company.

Former Twitter executive Peiter Zatko also known by his hacker handle Mudge received a subpoena Saturday from Musks team, in accordance with Zatko’s lawyer and court public records.

The billionaire Tesla CEO has spent months alleging that the business he decided to acquire undercounted its fake and spam accounts and he shouldnt need to consummate the offer consequently.

Zatko’s whistleblower complaint to U.S. officials alleging Twitter misled regulators about its privacy and security protections and its own capability to detect and root out fake accounts might play into Musks hands within an upcoming trial scheduled for Oct. 17 in Delaware.

Zatko served as Twitters head of security until he was fired early this season.
