But, as with any other present-day crisis, the roles of his lawyers also emerged in the mix.

Bezos was fulsome in his praise of security consultant, Gavin de Becker, whom he has tasked with investigating AMI’s efforts to unearth details of his personal life. But further down in the post, some insights emerge on what his attorneys are doing on his behalf.
