    Michael Cohen, the former personal attorney for President Trump, told House investigators this week that staff for Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., traveled to New York at least four times to meet with him for over 10 hours immediately before last month’s high-profile public testimony, according to two sources familiar with the matter who spoke to Fox News — as Republicans question whether the meetings amounted to coaching a witness. The sources told Fox News that the sessions covered a slew of topics addressed during the public hearing before the oversight committee — including the National Enquirer’s “Catch and...

    Jeff Bezos' girlfriend has privately acknowledged that she shared some photos and texts from the Amazon founder with several female friends, adding to the mystery of who leaked salacious material to the National Enquirer, according to a source close to the couple. In addition, the girlfriend, television personality Lauren Sanchez, also had the contents of her computer downloaded onto her assistant's computer for safekeeping, according to the source. What's more, investigators for Bezos are aware that Sanchez shared the photos and texts because, with her cooperation, they were able to trace the material in the cloud, where most computer and...

    The brother of Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos' girlfriend, former TV anchor Lauren Sanchez, criticized the tech billionaire's decision to try to preempt the National Enquirer's scoop on their affair. Michael Sanchez told Fox News' "MediaBuzz" Sunday that he had been negotiating with the Enquirer's parent company, American Media Inc., to soften a forthcoming story on the couple's extramarital affair when Bezos' longtime security adviser Gavin de Becker "launched World War III against AMI" by advising Bezos to undermine the scoop with what Sanchez called a "misleading" tweet about Bezos' divorce from wife MacKenzie. "Everything that Gavin has advised...

    A lawyer for American Media Inc. pushed back at Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ claim that the parent company of the National Enquirer threatened to expose nude selfies and bawdy text messages he exchanged with his mistress. “It absolutely is not extortion and not blackmail,” Elkan Abramowitz said on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday. “That is not extortion because all that AMI wanted was the truth.” He said the information about Bezos and former TV anchor Lauren Sanchez came from a “reliable source.” “Bezos and Ms. Sanchez knew who the source was,” Abramowitz said. “Any investigator who was going to investigate this...
  • Jeff Bezos - Very Rich, But Not Very Smart [vanity]

    FR ^ | Sunday, February 10, 2019 | cc
    That's one aspect of this fiasco that keeps ticking Bezos off - there's this unspoken meme out there that the richer you are, the smarter you must be. (Look at guys like Bill Gates or the founders of Google - smart computer guys, right?) And as The World's Richest Person, Bezos was happy to bask in this implied adulation too. But the fact that he would take "intimate self-pix" and send them over electronic media - which everyone, even poor peons like us, knows is hackable - shows really dumb behavior. (Bill Gates and Donald Trump never did this). Sure...

    A Washington Post reporter challenged her newspaper's billionaire owner Jeff Bezos in a series of tweets on Monday to provide paid paternal leave and give female employees equal pay. National reporter Abigail Hauslohner linked to Bezos' tweet expressing gratitude to journalists and promoting the Washington Post‘s Super Bowl ad. The commercial, which cost $5.25 million, was narrated by Tom Hanks and highlighted the work of journalists to bring citizens the facts, "no matter the cost." "I am proud to report for @washingtonpost," Hauslohner wrote. "I’ve been shot at while on the job, & I’ve run [from] airstrikes. I’ve been threatened...

    One of the biggest and most salacious stories currently, involving the world's richest man and one of the most powerful and an upcoming mega billion dollar divorce - the kind the media loves to go on and on for weeks and months - and yet there is a not a mention of Bezos anywhere. Just out of curiosity I scanned the standard MSM sites : abcnews.com - no mention cbsnews.com - no mention nbcnews.com - no mention huffingtonpost.com - no mention nytimes.com - no mention wapo.com - no mention seattletimes.com - no mention latimes.com - no mention chicagotribune.com - no...

    Full tile: Jeff Bezos Protests the Invasion of His Privacy, as Amazon Builds a Sprawling Surveillance State for Everyone Else IF BEZOS WERE the political victim of surveillance state abuses, it would be scandalous and dangerous. It would also be deeply ironic. That’s because Amazon, the company that has made Bezos the planet’s richest human being, is a critical partner for the U.S. Government in building an ever-more invasive, militarized and sprawling surveillance state. Indeed, one of the largest components of Amazon’s business, and thus one of the most important sources of Bezos’ vast wealth and power, is working with...

    Federal prosecutors are reviewing Mr. Bezos’ claim that he has been extorted, according to two people briefed on the matter who were not authorized to discuss it publicly. And those prosecutors have planned a meeting with Mr. Bezos’ representatives, one of those people said. If American Media is found to have broken a law — any law — it would be in violation of a [previous] deal with federal prosecutors from the Southern District of New York.

    I am very excited for this new episode in our national drama, in which the world’s richest man publicly accuses allies of the president of extorting him with private photos of his genitalia if he doesn’t stop accusing them of politically driven hatchet jobs.For dramatic purposes, it can’t end any other way except with Bezos producing evidence that Trump himself put the Enquirer up to digging up dirt on him, as revenge for the Washington Post’s negative coverage of POTUS. And then we’ll have a fun national debate over whether it’s wrong for the president to use scandal sheets...

    A reporter at the Washington Post says that an investigator hired by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos believes that text messages leaked to the National Enquirer between Bezos and his girlfriend may have been sent to the magazine by someone in government. In an appearance on MSNBC on Thursday, Post reporter Manuel Roig-Franzia said that Bezos's security consultant Gavin de Becker believes that National Enquirer obtained text messages from Bezos through inappropriate means. Bezos on Thursday said in a blog post that the Enquirer was attempting to force him to call off his investigation of the tabloid under the threat of...

    AP via Boston 25 news ^ | Updated: Feb 8, 2019 - 4:32 AM | By: MICHAEL BALSAMO and ZEKE MILLER, Associated Press
    Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos says he was the target of "extortion and blackmail" by the publisher of the National Enquirer, which he said threatened to publish revealing personal photos of him unless he stopped investigating how the tabloid obtained his private exchanges with his mistress. Bezos, who is also owner of The Washington Post, detailed his interactions with American Media Inc., or AMI, in an extraordinary blog post Thursday on Medium.com. The billionaire did not say the tabloid was seeking money - instead, he said, the Enquirer wanted him to make a public statement that the tabloid's coverage was not...

    Jeff Bezos’ personal security team has launched an investigation into how his text messages ended up in The National Enquirer, and the inquiry is increasingly convinced that political motives are behind the disclosure. The investigation is taking place independent of Amazon, and Bezos, the world’s richest man, is personally funding it. Investigators want to know who leaked the texts that publicly blew up Bezos’ marriage earlier this month by revealing, in lurid detail, his affair with Los Angeles news anchor Lauren Sanchez. The leaked text messages contained flowery missives from Bezos such as “I want to smell you, I want...

    President Trump mocked Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos over his recently revealed affair while praising the National Enquirer and slamming the newspaper owned by Bezos’ company. “So sorry to hear the news about Jeff Bozo,” the president tweeted, referring to Bezos as “Bozo.” “…being taken down by a competitor whose reporting, I understand, is far more accurate than the reporting in his lobbyist newspaper, the Amazon Washington Post.” The “competitor” Trump was referring to was the National Enquirer — which published a story that exposed damning text messages between Bezos and former TV anchor Lauren Sanchez. Shortly before the story ran,...

    AMAZON boss Jeff Bezos sent a photograph of his "big" willy to lover Lauren Sanchez in a string of sex text messages, it's been claimed. The tech tycoon - worth a staggering $140bn - also reportedly told the married TV star he was "full of love" for her and wanted to wake her up "and not be quite so gentle" with her. In addition to shirtless photographs, he is also said to have sent Sanchez an "unsparing" photograph of his genitals and 'sexts' which were apparently too graphic to publish, according to a National Enquirer source speaking to the New...

    Bezos — a self-described “family man” — has been whisking his mistress off to exotic destinations on his $65 million private jet, sending her raunchy messages and erotic selfies — including one steamy picture too explicit to print here — and having secret rendezvous at palatial private estates. During a blockbuster four-month investigation, The ENQUIRER tracked Bezos, who turns 55 on Jan. 12, and secret lover Sanchez 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.

    No thank you, Mr. Pecker Something unusual happened to me yesterday. Actually, for me it wasn’t just unusual — it was a first. I was made an offer I couldn’t refuse. Or at least that’s what the top people at the National Enquirer thought. I’m glad they thought that, because it emboldened them to put it all in writing. Rather than capitulate to extortion and blackmail, I’ve decided to publish exactly what they sent me, despite the personal cost and embarrassment they threaten.

"So sorry to hear the news about Jeff Bozo being taken down by a competitor whose reporting, I understand, is far more accurate than the reporting in his lobbyist newspaper, the Amazon Washington Post," Trump tweeted. "Hopefully the paper will soon be placed in better & more responsible hands!" Trump's tweets came shortly after The National Enquirer came out with the latest in a series of articles about Bezos's divorce from his wife of 25 years. American...
