US tabloid paid for, spiked tip on Trump

The woman told AP she never had an affair with Trump.

The Hill reported that Sajudin was paid $30,000 by AMI in late 2015 for his story about the affair so the publisher could bury it.

The former doorman reportedly paid by a magazine to keep quite about a rumoured Donald Trump love child has spoken.

The news that the National Enquirer allegedly paid a doorman to keep quiet about unverified rumors of a "love child" fathered by Donald Trump is just one more in a long string of bombshells directly or indirectly related to Stormy Daniels. 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.

RadarOnline, a sister publication of the Enquirer, published details of Sajudin's tale Wednesday, hours before The New Yorker and AP published their stories.

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".

"You know I took a polygraph test", Sajudin said. "Prosecutors are probing whether Cohen broke banking or campaign laws in connection with AMI's payment to McDougal and a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels that Cohen said he paid out of his own pocket". When asked if he thought his story was buried as part of a larger strategy by the National Enquirer to hide negative articles about Trump, Sajudin said, "It seems like the writing is on the wall about that, it's pretty clear".

In February, The New Yorker published a story on an alleged relationship between Trump and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who says she received US$150,000 from the Enquirer in August 2016 in return for her story, which also went unpublished.

The Trump Organization has called the doorman's claims "completely false", claiming he's had a history of telling fake rumors.

But he said he did so as Trump's spokesman and denied knowing anything beforehand about the payment. Sources within America Media Inc told Farrow that AMI CEO and Trump ally David Pecker told the National Enquirer staff to stop investigating the story once it had purchased the rights.

Of course, what federal investigators are interested in is if any laws were violated to protect Trump's presidential campaign.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided Cohen's office, home and hotel room on Monday, seeking information about the payment to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. Both the Associated Press and the New Yorker reported the payment Thursday.

The White House declined to comment as well.
