Jeff Bezos Turns Tables on Trump’s Pal Pecker

THE TECH billionaire and owner of the Washington Post made Kathryn Graham and her family proud when Mr. Bezos decided to tell A.M.I., their attorneys, and Trump’s pal Pecker to go pound sand.

Bezo’s Medium post is extraordinary.

AMI, the owner of the National Enquirer, led by David Pecker, recently entered into an immunity deal with the Department of Justice related to their role in the so-called “Catch and Kill” process on behalf of President Trump and his election campaign. Mr. Pecker and his company have also been investigated for various actions they’ve taken on behalf of the Saudi Government.

And sometimes Mr. Pecker mixes it all together:

“After Mr. Trump became president, he rewarded Mr. Pecker’s loyalty with a White House dinner to which the media executive brought a guest with important ties to the royals in Saudi Arabia. At the time, Mr. Pecker was pursuing business there while also hunting for financing for acquisitions…”

A couple of questions: Was Pecker’s move about Saudi Arabia and the murdered journalist Khashoggi, or maybe the Saudis are squeezing him. And is what the Washington Post is reporting about a government agency providing the hack of Bezos true? Is Trump’s decade-long jealousy of a real billionaire who owns one of the most powerful journalistic organizations on planet earth part of this breaking scandal?

The New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow tweeted that he had been threatened by Pecker’s people long before Bezos.

The Southern District of New York thanks the arrogance of everyone in the accidental occupant of the White House’s orbit.
