Bezos probe concludes mistress' brother was Enquirer source

Private investigators working for Jeff Bezos have determined that the brother of the Amazon chief executive's mistress leaked the couple's intimate text messages to the National Enquirer.

American Media, Inc., which owns the National Enquirer, fired back at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Friday after he publicly accused the publication of extortion and blackmail.

The explicit material, which is the centre of a "blackmail" row between the world's richest man and the National Enquirer, was allegedly passed to the USA tabloid by Michael Sanchez. "Another source who has been in extensive communication with senior leaders at AMI confirmed that Michael Sanchez first supplied Bezos' texts to the Enquirer".

Prior to that, Bezos had published a post on Medium decrying the Enquirer's methods, which seemed to suggest they were holding the "sexts" hostage to influence Bezos in regards to the Washington Post, which he owns and whose op-ed page is often critical of President Donald Trump.

With all 12 submarines to be built in Australia , the program is estimated to generate roughly 2,800 jobs per year. The next group of engineers will depart for France in March 2019.

Sanchez didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment on Monday.

The National Enquirer said Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019, that it had tailed billionaire Jeff Bezos for four months across five states as he secretly rendezvoused with Lauren Sanchez.

"Multiple sources" at the Enquirer told the Daily Beast website Mr Sanchez was the source of the photos.

That's according to a person familiar with the matter who spoke Monday to The Associated Press.

Russian Federation is considering whether to disconnect from the global internet briefly, as part of a test of its cyber-defences.

The investigators have since turned over the results of their probe to lawyer Richard Ben-Veniste for review and possible referral to law enforcement.

He suggested the Enquirer coverage was politically motivated as Mr Pecker is a close friend of Donald Trump, while Mr Bezos owns The Washington Post, which the United States president believes has a vendetta against him.

Federal prosecutors are also looking into whether the Enquirer violated a cooperation and non-prosecution agreement that recently spared the tabloid and top executives from charges for paying hush money to a Playboy model who claimed she had an affair with Trump, two people familiar with the matter told AP.
