Trump Had Affair With Housekeeper That Produced a Child, Former Doorman Claims

American Media Inc., which paid $150,000 to a former Playboy Playmate who claimed she'd had an affair with Trump, made the payment to Dino Sajudin in exchange for signing over the rights "in perpetuity" to a rumor he heard about Trump's sex life, the Associated Press reported.

Tabloids such as the National Enquirer frequently pay people for their stories, but Enquirer employees told the AP that they thought this was a clear case of "catch and kill" - paying for the rights to a story for the goal of burying it. The penalty for revealing the rumor to anyone else would subject Sajudin to a $1 million payment to the National Enquirer.

According to several of Farrow's anonymous sources, A.M.I. appears to have worked hand in hand with Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen, who was the subject of an F.B.I. raid earlier this week-a raid that was reportedly an attempt to discern whether Trump and Cohen misused campaign funds to pay off a series of people with stories to tell about the then-presidential hopeful.

Their reports were published after Radar Online, another AMI publication, acknowledged the payment of $30,000, which it wrote was agreed on November 30, 2015.

The American Media Inc. released Sajudin's contract after the 2016 United States presidential election. The site noted that the AP was among a group of publications that had been investigating the ex-doorman's tip. While he frequently calls reports from mainstream companies "fake news", Trump has had a relatively positive relationship with AMI, which has generally published articles to his liking. The media outlet that bought the story ultimately did not believe it to be true and never ran it.

Dylan Howard, the Enquirer's top editor and an AMI executive, also explained that the story seemed very interesting in the beginning and would have sold "hundreds of thousands" of magazines, but turned out to be untrue. "Unfortunately, however, Dino Sajudin is one fish that swam away".

But four longtime Enquirer staffers directly familiar with the episode challenged Howard's version of events. And, really, who among us didn't father a love child in the 80s?

"This is all fake", she said past year. The media company later said it paid McDougal for a series of "fitness columns and magazine covers". She's certain he never met Trump himself.

"The behavior is so extreme and so freakish", she said. The Associated Press reports that embattled Trump attorney Michael Cohen was involved in the deal with Sajudin.

"If your intent is to get a story from the source, there's no upside to paying upfront", said George, who sometimes handled catch-and-kill contracts.

The methods AMI uses to hide headline-worthy stories should cause anyone thinking about reading their publications to reconsider their go-to choices to get real news.

Sajudin passed the polygraph, which tested how he learned of the rumour.

For his part, Sajudin confirmed he'd been paid to be the tabloid's anonymous source but insisted he would sue the Enquirer if his name appeared in print.

Whether or not Sajudin's account is true, the revelation that AMI effectively paid the ex-doorman what amounted to "hush-money" is the latest in an emerging pattern of schemes to "catch-and-kill" negative stories about the president, which may have hurt his chances at the presidency.
