[Ed. – Is Bezos now working for Fusion GPS?  Something seemed “off” about this from the get-go; it’s awfully coincidental that this strange episode with Bezos is immediately being turned into a pretext for throwing suspicion on Trump.]

Amazon founder and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos appeared to blame President Trump for the National Enquirer leaking private messages and allegedly threatening to publish his “intimate photos.”

In a blog post, Thursday, Bezos claimed National Enquirer publisher David Pecker had threatened to publish “intimate photos” of him, and insinuated President Trump was part of the situation. …

“[A] few weeks ago … intimate texts messages from me were published in the National Enquirer. I engaged investigators to learn how those texts were obtained, and to determine the motives for the many unusual actions taken by the Enquirer. As it turns out, there are now several independent investigations looking into this matter,” the Amazon founder expressed. “Here’s a piece of context: My ownership of the Washington Post is a complexifier for me. It’s unavoidable that certain powerful people who experience Washington Post news coverage will wrongly conclude I am their enemy. President Trump is one of those people, obvious by his many tweets.”
