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.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is a loyal mouthpiece for President Donald Trump, both in presidential policy and against his political opponents in the election campaign. She has echoed Trump's attacks on Joe Biden, calling him a "radical socialist" and using monikers like "Sleepy."

But on Monday, CNN unearthed audio of McEnany from 2015 during an interview on New York AM970, in which she offered a very different view.

"I think the Republicans run into a problem if it is Joe Biden and if it is maybe a Trump on the other side," said McEnany. "Because Joe Biden, one of the things he is remarkable at is really kind of being a man of the people and resonating with middle class voters. Feeling like — coming off as human. His gaffes — as much as we make fun of them — to a certain extent they make him look human. So not, since he's likable."

"Lock her up," the crowds chanted. To which Trump replied, "Now [the chants] are happening with [Joe] Biden because that's a crime family, frankly. But every time that happens, when they say, 'lock her up,' they always blame me and I have nothing to do with it."

Published

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) announced that he is deploying troops to the polls in the state, something that a president can't even due because it can suppress the vote.

“The Texas Army National Guard said Monday it had been ordered to dispatch 1,000 troops to five major cities around the state in conjunction with the Nov. 3 election,” San Antonio Express-News reported on Monday.

It sent people into flames of rage claiming that it was an example of a Republican governor behaving like a segregationist from the 1950s.
