American Media LLC Plans To Sell 'National Enquirer'

The person was not authorized to discuss the meeting and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Schwartz didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. Saudi Arabia's minister of state for foreign affairs said recently that the kingdom had "absolutely nothing to do with" the matter.

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.

De Becker wrote that while his investigation found that AMI had paid Sanchez's brother, Michael Sanchez, for the information on Bezos, the Saudis were the original source of at least some of the material.

He said his inquiry "included a broad array of resources", including discussions with Saudi dissidents and whistleblowers and "people who personally know" Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Late a year ago, the Seattle company jumped ahead of many rivals by raising its minimum wage for USA workers to $15 an hour.

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

Bezos, who also owns The Washington Post, was the subject of an explosive National Enquirer story earlier this year that exposed an affair he was having.

At the time, Bezos said, the company wanted him to deny AMI had any political motivations behind its coverage of him.

The letter sought guidance on whether AMI's relationship with Saudi Arabia required it to register as a foreign agent under US law.

In an open letter to the Amazon leadership, which was signed by 4,074 Amazon workers, they said Amazon has the resources and scale to fight climate change, which they called "an existential threat".

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.

In August past year, the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan agreed not to prosecute American Media in exchange for the company's cooperation in its investigation of alleged campaign violations in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

Amid these developments, Bezos has expanded his legal team, adding attorney Matthew Schwartz, a partner at law firm Boies Schiller Flexner LLP who spent a decade as a federal prosecutor in NY, the people familiar with the matter said.
