All we have to go on is BS rag WJS's claim that the FBI is doing something based on Tesla sales claims, which isn't much because FBI probably won't comment on on going investigations and the timing of this and the source (WJS) and the 'unidentified sources' qualification together don't mean much- and overall the claim seems ridiculous in light of recent obvious results. WJS wants to say its a deepening issue as if its a DeLorean story or some other BS. Remember what happened to the WJS writer that said positive things about the Model 3? But what doesn't seem ridiculous would be looking into BMW. When there was all this BS in the news about Tesla car fires it turned out that it was BMW globally facing injunctions over car fires, and that BS didn't stop until a famous mathematician called out the BS. And now BMW's claims about its sales slightly increasing year on year seem highly suspect, its been called out on this before but it has been saying in the US where its has greater exposure to Tesla that SUV sales saved it even though its car brand is getting decimated by Tesla-all of that seems highly suspect because I never see X series on the road in Southern California where you'd be expected to see the highest concentration. Also wonder if this is the BMW pattern here as well because BMW is right now being pulled into its own diesel gate which went criminal with other German auto makers so if the pattern holds it would be trying to smear Tesla with the same stuff it is being accused of- it is a tactic straight out of Albert Speer's press manual. As for the SEC story the actual culprits of stock price manipulation with short and distort scams and complicit bribed media were not investigated and punished but Tesla which was trying to get away from this type of manipulation and punished for the attempt. So its as if the store keeper calls the police and they help the thief flee and then harass the store keeper. If what the WJS says is true you really have to start to suspect the Trump admin of sabotage. Why isn't the FBI investigating the in the pocket senator that is trying to put EVs at a huge disadvantage charging freeway access fees(?) as if it weren't the fossil fuel subsidies that should be ended immediately and recognized as crime. But I can imagine BMW and Ford and other's behind the scenes screaming in panic because Musk and crew aren't going along with the fossil fuel corruption. To me the credibility and functional integrity of the agency and USG start to be at stake with this type of stuff. There is a level of imperfection expected or natural to every large organization but a threshold is crossed at some point.
