However, Cramer added it will be difficult for Tesla to raise capital if "one of the risk factors is the CEO might be in jail."
Shares of Tesla sank 12 percent Friday, a day after the SEC filed the lawsuit.
Musk is being accused of making false and misleading statements in an Aug. 7 tweet about potentially taking Tesla private with "funding secured." The take-private idea was abandoned on Aug. 24.
Cramer described the settlement as a "deal of a lifetime," and said Musk made a huge mistake by not taking it.
"He must be going for some insanity defense," Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street. " "That kind of deal. I mean that is the sweetest deal ever."
Thursday evening, Tesla and the company's board issued a statement backing the CEO, saying Musk has "integrity," and his leadership "has resulted in the most successful U.S. auto company in over a century."
Musk had been acting erratically for months even before the take-private tweet.
In May, Musk rudely cut off analysts on Tesla's first-quarter earnings call. He apologized during the second-quarter call in August.
Musk was also launching tweetstorm after tweetstorm all summer as he was dealing with production problems for the company's new, less-expensive sedan, the Model 3.
