Tripp vs Tesla: Help fund the fight

My name is Martin Tripp and I am asking for your help! 

I'm originally from a small town in Northern Michigan, served four years in the US Navy, worked many electronics jobs and finally accepting Tesla's mission to "Accelerate the World's transition to sustainable energy"...that was short lived.

I am raising these funds to pay for legal counsel and expenditures related to legal actions.

6/19/18 I was fired by Tesla for providing disturbing information to the media in regards to extremely unsafe batteries/modules, unsafe production methods, and inconsistencies in numbers of cars produced as told by Elon Musk to investors and the general public.

6/20/18 I woke up to this huge lawsuit.

Tesla and Elon are much more powerful than I could ever be.  They have already intimidated me, belittled, and lied about me.  They have defamed me, and continue to tell complete fabricated lies about me.  They have gone so far as to lie about me threatening the Gigafactory as well.

I am an ordinary American.  I don't have much money, and they are trying to take what little I have away and leave us with nothing.  I cannot, and will not, let that happen.

Please help us fight this machine!

The funds will initially be spent to pay for the retainer fee for my immediate counsel, including expenses associated with being an SEC Whistleblower.  The initial retainer is significant, and the amount for all the related costs is expected to be in the mid to high six figures.

This support means everything.  It will make the difference in whether I have a chance in the fight against this machine.

My Family and I would be beyond grateful for the help and support you might be able to give.  It will be an honor to stand up to this, with your support against my back!  This is a David vs Goliath, and I am the underdog.  Your support makes the difference!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and please make a donation to help!
