Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is investigating the source of the leak of romantic texts published in the National Enquirer. His associates have questioned the brother of the woman he’s dating, according to a bombshell report in the Daily Beast.

USA News

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and wife MacKenzie Bezos arrive at the headquarters of publisher Axel-Springer on April 24, 2018, where he received the Axel Springer Award 2018 in Berlin. The couple announced on Jan. 9, 2019, on Twitter that they were divorcing.

The Enquirer is a pro-Trump publication and has admitted that it used its position to try to influence the 2016 election. So there have been questions raised about whether the Enquirer spent four months tracking Bezos to report on his love life as payback for critical articles written in the Post about Trump.

Bezos and wife MacKenzie announced they were ending their marriage after 25 years just ahead of the Enquirer story, linking him to former Los Angeles TV anchor Lauren Sanchez. Gavin de Becker, who does security for Bezos, confirmed to the Beast that he questioned brother Michael Sanchez.

What elevates this story from the usual sordid CEO having an affair angle is the political twist. President Donald Trump routinely attacks Bezos on his Twitter feed and refers to The Washington Post, which Bezos owns, as the “Amazon Washington Post.”

Michael Sanchez publicly supports Trump and, according to The Beast, is a “personal and business associate” of Trump associates Roger Stone, Carter Page and Scottie Neil Hughes.

Becker told The Beast that in Sanchez, “strong leads point to political motives.”
