More National Enquirer blackmail bombshells predicted after alleged Bezos extortion bid massively backfires

Published

on

The major scandal brewing around the National Enquirer’s apparent attempt to blackmail Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos may be about to get even more explosive.

A source described as “familiar with the National Enquirer’s operation” tells CNN’s Oliver Darcy that Bezos’ decision to go public with the Enquirer’s failed extortion bid is going to embolden more people who have been targeted by the publication in the past to come forward.

“It will all come out now,” predicted the source, who also said that they were familiar with more people who had been subjected to treatment similar to what happened to Bezos.

So far, New Yorker reporter Ronan Farrow, as well as MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, have all accused the National Enquirer of trying to blackmail them by vowing to publish damaging stories about them unless they agreed to their demands.

Scarborough and Brzezinski went so far as to accuse President Donald Trump of urging the Enquirer to threaten to publish information about their relationship unless they gave him more positive coverage, although the president denied these allegations.

Trump is a longtime ally of David Pecker, the CEO of National Enquirer parent company American Media Inc., who for years ran “catch-and-kill” operations to stop damaging stories from being published about the president.

Published

President Donald Trump attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from the White House on Tuesday.

As impeachment testimony was underway in the House, Trump told reporters in a Cabinet meeting that Pelosi is "grossly incompetent."

The president also said that Republicans are "killing it" in the impeachment hearings.

But Trump took a shot at Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an expert on Ukraine who was testifying at the time.

"I don't know him. ... I never saw the man," he said. "I understand now he wears his uniform when he goes in. No, I don't know Vindman at all. What I do know is that even he said that the transcript was correct."

Donald Trump Jr. questioned the military service of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, and was sprayed with venom.

The president's eldest son posted a link to a Federalist article suggesting Vindman is not a dedicated military officer and public servant, a line of questioning which Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) also pursued during an impeachment hearing.

"Let’s Stop Pretending Every Impeachment Witness Is A Selfless Hero," Trump Jr. tweeted, quoting the piece's headline.
