AMI trying to blackmail Bezos over WaPo stories could be a big deal.

Blackmail is very illegal and AMI is a very big company.

Few people know just how much AMI owns.

They own the National Enquirer, but they also own the National Examiner, Star, Globe, US Weekly, Radar, the rights to The Sun (retired), and Weekly World News (retired).

They own a TON of magazines. Just thier collection of Men's magazines includes: Men's Fitness, Muscle & Fitness, Men's Journal, and Flex.

They own too many publications to list, because I'm writing on my phone.

This could bring down a media empire.

members of the entertainment industry will be watching this case like a hawk.

2. Bezos will own

Pecker's company, his homes, cars, first born child... & Pecker will spend his dying days in the service of Bezos, wiping whomever's ass Bezos directs him to.

3. Am I correct that Peckerhead already cooperated and turned over his "vault' of

info on Trump? I can't keep up with all of this sleazy crap.

4. Questions are being asked whether Trump conspired with Pecker on this

in order to encourage more favorable treatment for Trump in the Washington Post.

Ruh roh.

6. "In the AMI letters I'm making public, you will see the precise details of their extortionate propos

They will publish the personal photos unless Gavin de Becker and I make the specific false public statement to the press that we 'have no knowledge or basis for suggesting that AMI's coverage was politically motivated or influenced by political forces,'" Bezos wrote in the post.

8. MSNBC

just had someone on who claims Gavin DeBecker is working on this. Said it doesn't look like Bezos phone was hacked, it's possible a foreign country gathered his phone information.

Trump might be going full Nixon.

11. THrilled He's Calling Their Bluff

cause I'm betting Individual 1 is somewhere in the pic, revenge being the motive. Also because I bet Bezos and De Becker won't be shy about spilling the beans. Though I think it stinks that Bezos was having an affair with his friend's wife.

12. Why would Pecker enter into a criminal situation knowing that

Mueller is already into him.

13. Everyone jumps to RICO too early, according to some law pundits, but isn't this

racketeering? Isn't this a corrupt organization? Isn't the criminal behavior described by Bezos exactly why the RICO Act exists -- to nail everyone involved in a situation like this, not just the front-line people who interact with the victim?

14. "No Thank You, Mr. Pecker" - Bezos' letter and email chain with AMI






Two bread crumbs dropped by Bezos: 1. Trump and 2. Saudi Arabia


Thank you, Jeff.

16. It IS a big deal. We need to know who gave into their blackmail demands.

I am thinking Lindsey Graham, for one.

20. "Gavin de Becker ... to proceed with whatever budget he needed to pursue the facts in this matter."

Whoa.

That's a completely different sentence when Jeff Bezos says it.
