In an email to all Tesla employees, the CEO claimed that one person was responsible for "quite extensive and damaging sabotage" to the company's operations, including changing the code of its manufacturing system and exporting sensitive data to "unknown third parties."

Musk also pointed to "a long list of organizations that want Tesla to die," including short-sellers on Wall Street. Musk's allegations come at a difficult time for Tesla as it struggles to ramp up production of its mass-market Model 3 car.
