Elon Musk Pledges to Close Twitter Deal by Friday

President Joe Biden’s spokeswoman said Tuesday she’s unaware of any discussions about a potential national security review of Elon Musk, yet acknowledged that there are concerns in the US government about the Tesla Inc. CEO’s remarks on Ukraine.

Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked about a Bloomberg News report last week on unease within the Biden administration about Musk’s ventures in light of recent comments he’s made about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
