Report: Leak of Bezos Texts by Mistress's Brother Was Politically Motivated

By Chas Danner POLITICS 12:17 A.M.

The source who provided the National Enquirer with personal text messages Amazon founder Jeff Bezos had exchanged with his mistress, news anchor Lauren Sanchez, was Sanchez’s brother, Michael, the Daily Beast reported on Sunday night.

Sanchez — a Trump supporter who is friendly with Trumpworld “dirty trickster” Roger Stone and another Russia investigation target, former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page — has denied that he had anything to do with the scandal, but “multiple sources” within American Media Inc., the Enquirer’s embattled parent company, have told the Beast that he was indeed the one who provided the messages which formed the basis for the Enquirer’s January exposé.

The apparent confirmation came less than three days after Bezos, who also owns the Washington Post, publicly accused AMI of trying to blackmail him in a Medium post. On Thursday night, the Amazon founder shared emails from AMI officials in which they threatened to publish several racy photographs Bezos and Ms. Sanchez had texted each other if he did not call off his investigation into why AMI had targeted him and how it had obtained his text messages.

It is not clear how Mr. Sanchez obtained the texts or why he would have been willing to violate his sister’s privacy in such a way, but the Beast reports that the act appears to have been politically motivated:

Documents reviewed by the Daily Beast show that Michael Sanchez believed the Enquirer pursued its story about Bezos with “President Trump’s knowledge and appreciation” — a chase encouraged, in Sanchez’s estimation, by Republican operatives “who THINK Jeff gets up every morning and has a [Washington Post] meeting to plot its next diabolical attack on President Trump.”

2. Tin foil hat in place....

It is not clear how Mr. Sanchez obtained the texts or why he would have been willing to violate his sister’s privacy in such a way, but the Beast reports that the act appears to have been politically motivated:

Documents reviewed by the Daily Beast show that Michael Sanchez believed the Enquirer pursued its story about Bezos with “President Trump’s knowledge and appreciation” — a chase encouraged, in Sanchez’s estimation, by Republican operatives “who THINK Jeff gets up every morning and has a [Washington Post] meeting to plot its next diabolical attack on President Trump.”


I have to wonder if Sanchex did not get the texts directly from his sister. Is there a possibility that Bezos was catfished, and that the whole thing was set-up? That sounds like some red sparrow shit to me.

Again... tin foil hat time, but one has to wonder how the brother get the sister's texts and why did he not care about his sister's place in all of this?

8. I was wondering if trumpft operatives got to her brother

after they found out she was seeing Bezos. They (trumpft operatives) probably had their sights on Bezos for a while. When they figured out who Bezos was seeing, they looked for a weak link and found her brother.

11. I can explain it in four steps

1.) Family gathering. Sister leaves phone unattended and unlocked

2.) Brother sneaks peak at phone, looks up texts messages between her and Bezos

3.) Brother snaps pics of her screens with his own phone then puts it back where he found it

4.) Voila!

6. What if Lauren Sanchez was in on it?

I am slightly inclined to believe that she was not.
Honey trap?

10. The best description of what Republicans think about journalism

They believe there are NO honest nor ethical journalists, that each of us "gets up every morning and has a meeting to plot" something to further the global socialist/gay/social justice agenda.

So that's why conservative media act as they do. Fox News, Newsmax, Infowars, etc., just mirror what they think the rest of do.

The only problem is: we don't.

13. This is an important paragraph

The brother very well may have been behind it, but I would not take AMI's word for it. They have every reason to want to pin it on him.
