The saga over the sex texts of the richest man on the planet continued to play out this week after CNN reported that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos will meet New York federal prosecutors over the matter.
In a report on Wednesday, CNN said the meeting could take place as early as this week as the US attorney’s office seeks information on two fronts:
CNN reported that prosecutors want to obtain access to Bezos’ electronic devices and talks about cooperation have been ongoing for some time. It follows de Becker’s team, which has been carrying out an independent investigation, turning over information to law enforcement.
CNN also said Bezos has expanded his legal team to handle the ongoing saga. The Amazon CEO has engaged the services of Matthew Schwartz, a partner at Boies Schiller Flexner. According to his bio, Schwartz was a federal prosecutor in the Southern District of New York between 2005 and 2015.
Bezos is also represented by Hollywood attorney Martin Singer. Business Insider has contacted Singer for comment following CNN’s report that his client is meeting with prosecutors. A spokeswoman for the US attorney’s office declined to comment when contacted by CNN.
De Becker went public with his theory on Saudi Arabia last month in an op-ed for The Daily Beast. He said his investigation had concluded that “the Saudis had access to Bezos’ phone, and gained private information.” Saudi Arabia has consistently denied any involvement in the matter.
