National Enquirer: Bezos' girlfriend's brother 'single source' for reports

Jeff Bezos leaked photos: Saudis involved in hack of Amazon CEO's cellphone, security chief says

Good. Now, the Amazon supremo's chief private investigator Gavin de Becker reckons the Saudi Arabian government hacked into devices to swipe copies of the CEO's awkward sweet nothings and naked sexy selfies, and passed the cache onto the United States supermarket tabloid.

Bezos accused the tabloid of trying to blackmail him prior to publishing the article, a claim which the company denies.

In an op-ed for The Daily Beast, de Becker recalled AMI's email to Bezos and himself, demanding that they sign an eight-page contract in exchange for intimate pictures of the world's richest man being kept under wraps by the National Enquirer.

"I'm writing this today because it's exactly what the Enquirer scheme was meant to prevent me from doing", de Becker said in the Daily Beast, before revealing that his investigation had concluded that "the Saudis had access to Bezos' phone, and gained private information". "He wrote that "... it is unclear to what degree, if any, AMI was aware of the details" of the hack.

An investigative team representing Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos continues to push forward with evidence-free, debunked claims that Saudi Arabia is responsible for hacking into the Washington Post owner's phone and disseminating information to the National Enquirer, which exposed the extramarital affairs of Mr. Bezos.

Still, De Becker alleges AMI may have already been looking into the affair and approached Michael Sanchez for proof.

Facebook's Zuckerberg calls for a 'more active' government role in regulating internet
In a column for the Washington Post , Zuckerberg said "a more active role" was needed for governments and regulators. Data portability refers to the ability to move data shared with one service to another service.

Two things stood out, he claimed.

De Becker also cited The Wall Street Journal's report that said Michael Sanchez, the brother of Bezos' mistress, was the source of the steamy text messages. Funnily enough, up until that demand was sent over, no one had mentioned anything about hacking, snooping, or external or political forces, said de Becker. "The company wanted to prevent any chance of it being accused of "electronic eavesdropping or hacking" even though de Becker had never publicly said anything about it using these methods". Bezos also floated the idea that President Trump, given his personal relationship with the National Enquirer's David Pecker, may have had something to do with the text scandal. "Such a odd phrase".

In a statement, AMI called the claims "false and unsubstantiated". Khashoggi was killed and dismembered by people close to the crown prince and US lawmakers say intelligence indicates that the crown prince was involved in the murder. The investigator gave no direct evidence to reinforce his allegations, which furthered a suggestion made by Bezos in February that the tabloid's interest in his personal life could be linked to the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

According to de Backer, the Saudi's unleashed a social media campaign against Amazon and Bezos last October.

Furthermore, it found that numerous hacking techniques used to bring down Khasoggi were in use in exposing the Bezos member.
