    Jeff Bezos:

    Well, that got my attention. But not in the way they likely hoped. Any personal embarrassment AMI could cause me takes a back seat because there’s a much more important matter involved here. If in my position I can’t stand up to this kind of extortion, how many people can? (On that point, numerous people have contacted our investigation team about their similar experiences with AMI, and how they needed to capitulate because, for example, their livelihoods were at stake.)

    Holy shit. After reading this piece, my first thought was this scene from The Dark Knight.

    2019 is shaping up to be just as, if not more, surreal than 2017 and 2018.

    Nit Pick: What does he have to make up a word like "complexifier"? Why can't he just say something like, "...what makes this more complex is..."

    Story is sensational. Can't believe our current POTUS is siding with National Inquirer on this.
