The Nationwide Enquirer’s determination to publish texts between Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his mistress, Lauren Sanchez, continues to have ripple results. Far past the standard trashy tabloid fodder, this story is changing into more and more damaging to everybody concerned. Bezos’ spouse filed for divorce after the texts have been printed. Bezos has employed a safety group to seek out out who was behind the leaked texts; the group discovered there was some proof a “authorities company” was concerned, presumably from Saudi Arabia, the place the royal household is angered by the Washington Publish’s protection of the homicide of their colleague, journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
However the Every day Beast reviews that a number of sources say the texts got here from Lauren Sanchez’s brother, Michael Sanchez, who occurs to pal round with Roger Stone, amongst different Trump-connected people. Trump, in fact, has regularly criticized Jeff Bezos and the Washington Publish.
After Bezos’ group started to publicly determine Saudi Arabia as a attainable supply, Elkan Abramowitz, an lawyer for American Media, Inc., writer of the Enquirer, appeared on ABC’s This Week to disclaim Saudi Arabia was the supply, saying, “I’m not permitted to inform you, or verify or deny, who the supply is. I can inform you, it’s not Saudi Arabia. It’s not President Trump. It’s not Roger Stone. However I can’t inform you who the supply is.”
