National Enquirer Paid Trump Doorman $30000 To Quiet Affair Rumors

  • Feds are trying to determine if the American Media Inc. helped Trump during the presidential campaign

The National Enquirer magazine paid Donald Trump's doorman $30,000 to prevent him publicly speaking about a rumour he fathered a love child, it has emerged.

Dino Sajudin, the ex-doorman of the Trump Tower in New York City, knew that the president had an illegitimate child with an employee of the Trump World Tower, which is near the United Nations.

The publication ultimately spiked the story, according to The Associated Press.

The magazine's publisher, whose chief executive David Pecker is a friend of Mr Trump, has repeatedly been accused of buying rights to unfavourable stories about the U.S. president in order to bury them. But when asked for more details on the rumor or the deal, he refused to talk and said: "If there's no money involved with it, I'm not getting involved".

The woman who was allegedly impregnated by Trump has denied the rumor and told the AP directly that it was not true. The Trump Organization denied the story, and both the mother and daughter in question declined to comment.

As we reported, the former Playboy model says the Enquirer paid her $150,000 for the exclusive rights to her story about the alleged affair.

The Radar Online article did not refer to the $1 million penalty that was reportedly in the contract.

Several media outlets are buzzing that the infamous tabloid The National Enquirer received a valuable rumor during the 2016 Presidential Election then paid $30,000 to not let it out. According to a New York Times report on Tuesday, agents were specifically searching for information "related to the publisher of The National Enquirer's role in silencing one of the women".




"This establishes a pattern now", said Farrow. However, Sajudin refused to unless he received an advance payment.

On Monday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Cohen's hotel room and office looking for information about the McDougal and Daniels payouts, Trump's infamous Access Hollywood tape, and communications between Cohen, Trump, Pecker, and AMI's chief content officer Dylan Howard.

Four longtime Enquirer staff members contradicted Howard's statement during interviews with the AP.

"Paying for information has always been a practice of The National Enquirer and to suggest that it has only paid for, and not run, stories about any particular person is absurd". "The fact that no other news organization has subsequently been able to validate the story after AMI released the subject from his exclusivity clause confirms the basis for our editorial decision". Employees of AMI told the New Yorker they were told to stop investigating after the deal was made.

"You know I took a polygraph test", he told the Washington Post, claiming the story was killed because American Media has a history of protecting Trump from negative stories. Cohen and his relatives have amassed more than two dozen taxi medallions in separate entities that carry such names as Golden Child Cab Corp. and Smoochie Cab Corp.

"The source that this is coming from is unstable on every level", Benfatto said of her former husband of 14 years.

The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Why, for example, did the Enquirer reach out to Cohen if it didn't regard Sajudin's story credible or worth reporting?
