During the hearing and on Twitter, Democrats such as Rep. Stacey Plaskett, who represents the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Rep. Sylvia Garcia (TX) denied they were trying to pressure the pair to reveal their sources, with Garcia saying Taibbi's refusal to say whether Musk was his primary source proved Musk was his source.

"No one is interested in revealing 'journalists’ sources," Plaskett tweeted. "What we ALL should be interested in is what discussion, promises and/or deals Elon Musk has with Taibbi, Shellenberger," and House Republicans.

House Republicans posted video of Democrats' line of questioning proving tney were, in fact, attempting to get Taibbi and Shellenberger to spill the beans.

"I’m not his source, but, yeah, obviously asking journalists to reveal sources is not cool," Musk tweeted in response to the Democrats' line of inquiry.
