Washington Post reporter Manuel Roig-Franzia said Thursday that Jeff Bezos’ investigators believe that a “government entity” may be behind the leak of Bezos’ sexts to the National Enquirer.
“…They have begun to believe, the Bezos camp, that this publication by the National Enquirer might have been politically motivated,” Roig-Franzia told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. “[Bezos security chief] Gavin de Becker told us that he does not believe that Jeff Bezos’ phone was hacked. He thinks it’s possible that a government entity might have gotten ahold of his text messages.”
Bezos wrote a blog post Thursday alleging that the National Enquirer tried to use explicit pictures he sent to his mistress to blackmail him.
