Trump's pal David Pecker tried to blackmail Jeff Bezos. Big mistake. Huge.

"Any personal embarrassment AMI [publisher of National Enquirer] could cause me takes a back seat...If in my position I can’t stand up to this kind of extortion, how many people can?" -@JeffBezos
Jeff Bezos: David Pecker was “apoplectic” about our investigation...the Saudi angle seems to hit a particularly sensitive nerve.

AMI sources say that in return for the catch & kill operation, Trump introduced Pecker to funding sources: Prince MBS.

Per @RoigFranzia: Bezos security specialist Gavin de Becker said the texts & photos may have been obtained by a foreign govt for Trump and given to AMI.

–> In 2018, MBS obtained new cyber warfare tools: “Once a phone is infected...full access to victim’s texts, photos--”

"Both de Becker and Sanchez at various points theorized that government or foreign hacking could have been behind the leak of Bezos’s texts...that Trump might have enlisted the help of British intelligence or the Israeli Mossad."

Israeli spyware Pegasus [for whom Flynn was a paid advisor], acquired by MBS for $55M in 2018, allows customers to secretly listen to calls on victim's phone, see texts & photos, and use phone’s mic & camera as surveillance devices. #Bezos

Has Jeff Bezos turned over evidence to the FBI of a Saudi-Trump-AMI criminal conspiracy? My guess is yes.

BREAKING: Federal prosecutors in the SDNY US Attorney's office are reviewing the National Enquirer’s handling of its story about Jeff Bezos’ extramarital affair to determine if they violated an earlier cooperation deal.

Jared Kushner, who is very close to Saudi Crown Prince MBS, nearly bought the Enquirer in 2014, then became Trump team Enquirer liaison.

Oct 2017: SoftBank, whose CEO has deep ties to Saudi Prince MBS, lent $57M to Kushner Cos. That same month, Jared left DC for an unannounced visit with MBS when he reportedly divulged classified intel. A week later, MBS launched his royal "purge."

via @sam_vinograd: Why WOULDN’T @WhiteHouse meet their legal obligations under the Magnitsky Act to deliver a report to Congress on what happened to Khashoggi? Only logical answer is that they don’t want Congress to hold Khashoggi’s murderers accountable.
