AWS says its Trump JEDI bias claims have met 'credible' bar for court

Amazon Web Services fired back on why it is claiming bias by President Donald Trump in the Joint Enterprise Defense Initiative (JEDI) protest case in a redacted motion Friday, noting that those allegations meet the bar of credibility that would allow the Court of Federal Claims to examine the issue further. The crux of AWS’s case has been that Trump helped steer the potential $10 billion cloud infrastructure contract to Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT) based on an alleged animus toward Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. AWS is the cloud-computing subsidiary of Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN).
