Federal officials are investigating Elon Musk in connection with his recent $44 billion bid to purchase Twitter.

It is unclear which agencies are going to lead the probe and Twitter did not share which specific actions that Musk will be investigated for. In a court filing yesterday, Twitter revealed that federal authorities are looking into Musk’s conduct linked to his deal to buy the social media platform.

Musk recently agreed to a deal with the company after he had previously said he would back out. Turning down the offer resulted in Twitter attempting to sue Musk.

Musk’s attorney argues that Twitter’s executives are under federal investigation.
