Michael Sanchez declined Wednesday to give CNN an on-the-record comment about whether he was the leaker. He previously denied The Washington Post playing details about the relationship between Bezos and his sister, and told The New York Post that he would not respect allegations with a response.
An AMI representative told CNN on Wednesday that the company "refused to comment on sources."
Suggestions about whether Trump or Saudi Arabia were likely to be played on exposing the relationship was dissolved as Bezos first made a blog post last week detailing his interactions with the National Enquirer.
In the blog post, Bezos hung in tantalizing details before the reader, mentioning both Trump and Saudi Arabia.
Bezos writes that his ownership of The Washington Post, which covers both Trump and the Saudi government, is a "complicated" for him.
In essence, Bezos suggested ̵
But after six days, Bezos did not give any evidence to support those ideas. And while he provides emails to support his allegorical allegation by threatening, the lack of evidence in other explosive suggestions has increased interest in this matter.
"American Media has nothing, nor any editorial or financial relationship with Saudi Arabia," a CNN company spokesman said last week in response to questions about the matter.
Addressing the idea that the inquiry of the Enquirer is in some way promoted by Saudi Arabia or AMI's desire to have a connection with Saudis, a senior AMI level administrator told CNN on Wednesday, "We are all is laughing that has become something since it's one year old. The money never gave Saudi money to the Enquirer. "
While de Becker said he returned that information to Bezos's lawyers, he refused to show the public any details about what he found. The Daily Animal reported that it reviewed the documents related to the investigation, but it is not clear whether documents are from de Becker's investigation.
De Becker did not give CNN a comment on the note, despite the numerous requests. An Amazon representative also refused to comment, because the questions did not refer to the company. Bezos had no other prominent spokesperson representing him.
Questions asked by CNN to de Becker and Amazon's spokesperson are: Why did Bezos mention Saudis and Trump in his blog post ?; What are the findings of de Becker's investigation ?; Is Bezos sharing public information about de Becker's investigation?
In the first post on Bezos's blog, he shared an email from Dylan Howard, chief official of the National Enquirer. Howard, in that email, detailed with other pictures he said was the tabloid "earned during our newsgathering." Those images include what Howard describes as a "& # 39; below the selfie belt – otherwise known as a & # 39; d * ck pick & # 39;" and other explicit images of both Lauren Sanchez and Bezos. Michael Sanchez told CNN last Tuesday – before CNN reported he was the first source of the National Enquirer – told him that the investigation had "been removed" from him by "any involvement" in relation to pictures related to genitalia by Bezos. He said that he had provided information through a third party with a knowledge of the investigation, and that he was not directly told that he was cleared by the investigators.
"I was told that the Amazon investigation referred to me that I was not involved in the leakage of d * ck pics, because I had no access to any of d * ck pics," he told CNN.
Michael Sanchez on Tuesday also cast doubt on the hardships of de Becker's investigation, telling CNN that throughout the course of the de Becker investigation "never asked to check my phone, laptop or note" or " he identified himself as an investigator. " He suggested that Bezos's suggestion that Saudis or Trump could play a role in leaking text messages to the National Enquirer is an attempt to interfere.
