Prosecutors may ‘tear up’ National Enquirer publisher’s nonprosecution agreement if he blackmailed Jeff Bezos

Published

on

Prosecutors in the Southern District of New York may “tear up” the cooperation agreement with America Media Incorporated — the parent company of the National Enquirer — if reports are true that the company blackmailed Jeff Bezos, CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin explained on Thursday.

“When you cooperate with the Southern District of New York, they have a blanket rule that you cooperate about everything,” Toobin explained. “You answer any question they have.”

“The condition of that agreement is always — you don’t commit any other crimes or the deal is off,” he noted.

“So what they have to be concerned about is the prosecutor saying, ‘you’ve now committed blackmail, you’ve now committed extortion, we’re going tear up that agreement and prosecute you the same way we prosecuted Michael Cohen for an illegal campaign contribution,'” he continued.

“I don’t know if they’re going to do that, but it’s possible,” Toobin added.
