A set up? Bezos text leaker is a lawyer with right-wing clients — and links to Roger Stone

Published

on

Michael Sanchez, the brother of the woman who had an affair with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is concluded to be the person who leaked the text messages and nude photos to the National Enquirer. However, Sanchez’s history with the right-wing is now coming to light.

According to Daily Beast reporter Lachlan Markay revealed that Sanchez was in contact with President Donald Trump’s friend and advisor Roger Stone in wake of the Enquirer’s release of the preliminary story about the Bezos affair.

“According to the documents you reviewed, that Sanchez was providing — that the Enquirer was pursuing its story about Bezos with President Trump’s knowledge and appreciation,” quote MSNBC host Chris Hayes Monday. “What’s that mean? How could he know that?”

Mackley said that the comment came from Sanchez, who was like speculating and “doesn’t have direct knowledge of the fact.”

However, Sanchez does have right-wing ties to Trump allies that could garner knowledge.

“But it’s worth noting that he’s also — he has long-standing business and personal relationships with some notable people in President Donald Trump’s orbit, chiefly, Roger Stone, Carter Page, and Scottie Nell Hughes. So that’s something that –” he continued before Hayes cut him off in surprise.

“Wait, Michael Sanchez does?” Hayes asked.

“He does, yes. He formally represented Carter Page and Scottie Nell Hughes and Roger Stone confirmed to us that the two of them are friends. And in fact, we know from additional documentation in prior reporting that Michael Sanchez and Roger Stone were in touch about this story very shortly after it ran in the National Enquirer.”

2020 Election

Democrats are on the verge of setting a ‘time bomb’ for any candidate who can defeat Trump

Published

on

If a new president takes over the White House in January 2021, he or she may quickly find that the Democratic Party that just won control of the executive branch left a loaded gun in the hands of the Republicans, who are all too eager to use it.

That should be the takeaway from reports about the budget negotiations between the House Democrats and the Trump administration. According to Bloomberg reporter Sahil Kapur, the parties are coalescing around an agreement to raise spending by $350 billion, offset that increase somewhat with about $75 billion, and extend the debt ceiling — now set to expire in the fall — to July 31, 2021.

The US Department of Agriculture will propose a rule on Tuesday that would strengthen restrictions on food stamp recipients -- cutting approximately 3.1 million Americans from the program, according to Reuters.

Currently, 43 U.S. states allow residents to automatically become eligible for food stamps through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, known as SNAP, if they receive benefits from another federal program known as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF, according to the USDA.

Teeth ‘time capsule’ reveals that 2 million years ago, early humans breastfed for up to 6 years

Published

on

Humans’ distant ancestor Australopithecus africanus had a unique approach to raising their young, as shown in our new research published today in Nature.

Geochemical analysis of four teeth shows they exclusively breastfed infants for about 6-9 months, before supplementing breast milk with varying amounts of solid food until they were 5-6 years old. The balance between milk and solid food in this period varied cyclically, probably in response to seasonal changes in food availability.
