US tabloid paid for, spiked tip on Trump


Trump has denied having a relationship with either woman.

Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 just before the 2016 election to keep quiet about her alleged affair with the president a decade earlier, acknowledged he had talked with the magazine about Sajudin's story.

According to New Yorker reporter Ronan Farrow, in an interview with CNN on Thursday morning, the order to pay off the doorman about the Trump out-of-wedlock child rumor came straight from Pecker himself.

The saga seems in keeping with previous reports of "catch and kill" scenarios involving the Trump campaign, most notably the claim from former Playboy model Karen McDougal that the National Enquirer's parent company paid her U.S. $150,000 to shut up about her alleged affair with Trump. Another facet of the deal has drawn attention: Sajudin's contract with the National Enquirer also included a clause subjecting him to a seven-figure fine for taking the allegation to a competing outlet.

Dino Sajudin said President Trump had a love child.

The AP also wrote that, during its efforts to fill in the details behind the doorman's story and the Enquirer's payoff, "AMI threatened legal action over reporters' efforts to interview current and former employees and hired the NY law firm Boies Schiller Flexner, which challenged the accuracy of the AP's reporting".

Sajudin said he heard the tale from employees and residents of Trump World Tower and passed a polygraph test, RadarOnline reported. But a Boies Schiller partner said on Thursday that the two matters were unrelated and that the firm's work for AMI ended months before reports about Weinstein's misconduct became public in November. In 2014, a Web site registered through a service that obscures the identity of the author claimed that Sajudin had made similar accusations against a Trump Tower resident named Lawrence Penn III, and that those accusations were false.




Former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal has also claimed she had an nearly year-long affair with Trump between 2006 and 2007. The Trump Organization has said that Calamari had no knowledge of this. She was allegedly paid $150,000 by the National Enquirer's parent company, American Media, for the rights to her story, which was then killed.

What do you think of the National Enquirer?

"I wrote and signed the communication with the AP, and I was the most senior lawyer at Boies Schiller on the engagement", he said.

Upon hearing word that his contract had been exposed to the press, Sajudin stuck by his story.

Now, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is interested in looking into Cohen's apparent relationship with Pecker and what communication the two had during the campaign to prevent scandalous stories about Trump from reaching the masses.

The White House declined to comment as well.
