Richard Herman on Bezos/AMI: ‘All the Elements of Extortion Are There’

‘I think it turns into how AMI obtained the materials’
By Grabien Staff


HERMAN: "Yes, and if you don’t give us this public statement that our investigation is not politically motivated. So there’s a benefit. All the elements of extortion are there. The question is, is it only physical violence that brings extortion prosecution or is this sufficient. Here, it’s reputational damages. It’s embarrassment. He's still a multimillionaire. He’s getting divorced anyway. Is that sufficient? The Southern District is looking into this now, Fred. I think it turns on how AMI obtained the materials. If they obtained them in a criminal fashion, I think they're going to be prosecuted?"
