It has been revealed that Lauren Sanchez’s pro-Trump brother Michael is the person who leaked the sexts between his sister and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to the National Enquirer.
There were multiple sources from AMI, who is the parent company of National Enquirer, who confirmed to Daily Beast that Michael was who blew their cover.
Before Sunday AMI was refusing to reveal the information on who leaked the information on the sexts. Finally a lawyer for the company, Elkan Abramowitz, hinted who was behind the leak.
“The story was given to the National Enquirer by a reliable source that had given information to the National Enquirer for seven years prior to this story,” he said while on on ABC’s This Week.
Although Abramowitz did not completely reveal the source, he did say that, “It was a source that was well known to both Mr Bezos and Ms Sanchez.”
When contacted, AMI refused to confirm the revelations by Daily Beast.
More info from Daily Mail:
Confirmation of Michael’s involvement comes as it was confirmed that Bezos has closed his investigation into the leaker of the texts.
‘Our investigation into who initially provided texts to the National Enquirer, and why it was done – that investigation is now complete,’ Gavin de Becker, the security consultant Bezos hired to lead the investigation, told the Daily Beast.
‘We have turned our conclusions over to our attorneys for referral to law enforcement. Our investigation into what the National Enquirer and [publisher] AMI did after they received the initial texts – that investigation is ongoing.’
De Becker would not disclose any findings of his investigation, including whether he had individually confirmed that Sanchez was the source of the leaked texts.
The security consultant previously made no secret about the fact that he and Bezos suspected Sanchez’s brother could be involved with the leak.
Why is it relevant that Michael is a Trump supporter? There is a longstanding rivalry between President Trump and Jeff Bezos. The billionaires have went toe-to-toe on several issues over the years and Bezos has used The Washington Post as an outlet for many hit pieces on President Trump.
It’s even been established that Amazon’s “Alexa” is a social justice warrior.
