Amazon Bezos Elizabeth Warren

Amazon Bezos Elizabeth Warren”

He accused of threatening to publish explicit photographs of him unless he stopped exploring his messages were acquired by the Enquirer together with Sanchez, the tabloid's writer.

The Bezos attack also threatened to upend American Media's non-prosecution agreement with federal prosecutors.

The open letter came after hundreds of Amazon workers called past year on the company to stop selling its facial-recognition software to the USA government for fears of the tools being used to violate people's rights.

It's not clear whether federal prosecutors have independent evidence to corroborate the claim that the Saudis hacked Bezos's phone or had any connection to the National Enquirer's story on his affair.

The National Enquirer, which is under fire for paying hush money to a former model linked to US President Donald Trump, is on the auction block. In addition to the National Enquirer, American Media said it was also considering selling two other brands, Globe and National Examiner.

Last summer, Pecker was granted immunity to testify at the trial of Trump's former attorney, Michael Cohen.

Prosecutors haven't reached a determination concerning the extortion claim, according to a person familiar with the investigation, and they are now working to examine another set of claims - those made last month by Bezos's security consultant, Gavin de Becker.

The Enquirer and Saudi Arabia have denied wrongdoing.

Following the publication of de Becker's op-ed, the publisher issued a statement saying Sanchez alone was the source for its reporting.

The company in October pledged to pay all of its warehouse workers at least $15 an hour, after presidential hopefuls Warren and Bernie Sanders held out Amazon workers on food stamps as an example of the need for living-wage protections. He said Amazon is willing to continue to take risks and learn from its failures, while simultaneously supporting successful areas of its business like its third-party sellers and retail locations. Saudi Arabia's minister of state for foreign affairs said recently that the kingdom had "absolutely nothing to do with" the matter.

The sale, if it does happen, would likely not be welcomed by president Trump, a friend of AMI CEO David Pecker and a big fan of the supermarket staple.
