Con man? Really? What's the con?

Several days before Tesla raised cash he said there's "zero concern, and I mean zero" about 10k/week by the end of 2018.

According to documents from some lawsuit by ex-employees, he was told repeatedly that 5k/week is impossible by the end of 2017, but despite that knowledge, he publicly stated that as Tesla's guidance.

After Tesla got fired from NTHSA investigation, he issued a press release stating they decided to leave the investigation. After that, NTHSA had to clarify what really happened.
