In response to a tweet Hillary Clinton sent out about how David DePape, the suspect in the attack on Paul Pelosi, spread far-right conspiracy theories, Musk responded, "There is a tiny possibility there might be more to this story than meets the eye," and included a link to a false article that claimed Paul Pelosi and a male sex worker had been in a drunken quarrel.The article appeared in the Santa Monica Observer, an outlet that has proven itself to be unreliable at best.
