Bezos probe concludes mistress' brother was Enquirer source

Bezos probe concludes mistress' brother was Enquirer source

A person familiar with the matter told the newspaper "The New Kingdom" issue fawning over Prince Mohammed was "done to kiss his ass when he came to visit in the hopes he'd invest in the company and it didn't work".

The findings add to the intrigue surrounding the clash between the pro-Trump tabloid and the world's richest man.

Bezos is sometimes derided by Trump due to the fact that the Amazon CEO is also the owner of the Washington Post.

"But it's worth noting that he's also - he has long-standing business and personal relationships with some notable people in President Donald Trump's orbit, chiefly, Roger Stone, Carter Page, and Scottie Nell Hughes".

Michael Sanchez did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment on Monday. In a January 31 tweet, he said without evidence that Bezos' longtime security consultant, Gavin de Becker, who is leading the private investigation, "spreads fake, unhinged conservative conspiracy theories". American Media Inc. denied claims it blackmailed Bezos.

The source had provided information to the company for at least seven years, Elkan Abramowitz, a lawyer for American Media chief executive David Pecker, said on ABC's This Week.

The same day, the Daily Beast reported that multiple sources at AMI, the National Enquirer's parent company, pointed to Michael as the source who leaked the intimate text messages to the tabloid.

Last week, Bezos announced that private pictures (including possibly a "nude selfie") he had sent to his girlfriend, entertainment television host Lauren Sanchez, were somehow intercepted by the National Enquirer, whom he alleged, threatened to publish them in the publication as part of an extortion plot against him, per reporting from the Boston Globe. "We have turned our conclusions over to our attorneys for referral to law enforcement", he told the outlet Sunday, but declined giving further details.

Mr Ben-Veniste served as special prosecutor during the Watergate scandal.

The National Enquirer said it followed Bezos and his mistress for four months, "across five states and 40,000 miles, tailed them in private jets, swanky limos, helicopter rides, romantic hikes, five-star hotel hideaways, intimate dinner dates and "quality time" in hidden love nests". The person wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to AP on condition of anonymity.
