Mark Esper, the newly appointed Pentagon chief, ordered a review of the Defense Department’s “war cloud” contract after President Trump threatened to investigate whether it was written with a bias toward Amazon.

A Department of Defense (DOD) spokeswoman confirmed the probe in a statement on Thursday.

“Keeping his promise to Members of Congress and the American public, Secretary Esper is looking at the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) program,” Elissa Smith, the DOD spokeswoman, said, referring to the highly controversial $10 billion cloud-computing contract.
