Trump defender Alan Dershowitz goes down in flames while defending National Enquirer’s ‘extortion-ish’ threat to Jeff Bezos

Chief Executive Officer of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, tours the facility at the grand opening of the Amazon Spheres, in Seattle, Washington on January 29, 2018.

Sources delving into how the National Enquirer and its parent company AMI got their hands on private photographs of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos say the matter may involve the brother of his current girlfriend. A person familiar with the matter told the newspaper "The New Kingdom" issue fawning over Prince Mohammed was "done to kiss his ass when he came to visit in the hopes he'd invest in the company and it didn't work".

Additionally, reporting from CBS News seems to suggest that individuals inside Trump's orbit - including former adviser Roger Stone and former campaign adviser Carter Page - spoke to Michael Sanchez about the salacious texts.

U.S. President Donald Trump returns to the White House after receiving his annual physical exam at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on February 8, 2019 in Washington, DC.

Apple's 2019 iPhone won't ditch Lightning for USB-C
Apple's iPhone series has stayed loyal to the Lightning connector ever since it was first introduced in 2012. Macotakara claims that the reason behind Apple's insistence on keeping the Lightning cable is simple: money.

Michael Sanchez did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment on Monday. David Pecker, CEO of AMI which owns the National Enquirer, is friends with the American president and, as the New York Times reported, received immunity from federal prosecutors for paying off two women during the 2016 campaign so their relationships with Trump would remain secret. The source had provided information to the company for at least seven years, Elkan Abramowitz, an attorney for American Media Inc. chief executive David Pecker, said on ABC's "This Week".

"According to the documents you reviewed, that Sanchez was providing - that the Enquirer was pursuing its story about Bezos with President Trump's knowledge and appreciation", quote MSNBC host Chris Hayes Monday.

According to Daily Beast reporter Lachlan Markay revealed that Sanchez was in contact with President Donald Trump's friend and advisor Roger Stone in wake of the Enquirer's release of the preliminary story about the Bezos affair. "We have turned our conclusions over to our attorneys for referral to law enforcement", he told the outlet Sunday, but declined giving further details.

The Daily Beast, which has been tracking the story of Bezos' private investigation into the leaked texts, spoke with Bezos' security consultant Gavin de Becker, who said they've wrapped up the leak investigation.
