Supporting magazine paid $30000 to doorman over rumour he fathered love child

(AMI) paid ex-doorman Dino Sajudin to sign over the rights, "in perpetuity", to a rumor about Trump allegedly having fathered a child with a Trump World Tower employee.

A former Trump World Tower doorman with a salacious tale about the man who would be president sold its rights to the parent company of National Enquirer, which promptly killed the story, multiple media outlets reported Thursday.

The contract subjected Mr Sajudin to a $1 million penalty if he disclosed either the rumor or the terms of the deal to anyone, according to USA media.

The FBI raided the office and hotel room of Trump's attorney Michael Cohen earlier this week over a $130,000 payment he said he made to porn star Stormey Daniels, who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006.

In a statement on Thursday, AMI said it had determined that the rumor wasn't true, which is why it didn't run a story.

"But after four weeks of investigation, and dozens of phone calls, the tabloid - famed for proving John Edwards had fathered a "love child" - concluded the story was NOT true".

Trump commented on the donation from Pinchuk
In a statement to the Times, the Victor Pinchuk Foundation said the donation was a "specific request" from the Trump Foundation. Mueller is investigating foreign money that Trump's campaign accepted and whether any of it benefits his personal finances.

"We released Sajudin from the exclusivity clause that had accompanied his $30,000 payment, freeing him to tell his story to whomever he wanted", Howard said. Like Benfatto, the Trump Organization has said that the former doorman's claims are false and that he has a history of making up narratives.

During AP's reporting, 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.

"Today I awoke to learn that a confidential agreement that I had with AMI (The National Enquirer) with regard to a story about President Trump was leaked to the press".

"You know I took a polygraph test", Sajudin said in response to a Trump Organization statement that claimed he regularly fabricated stories.

The two are reported to have been in contact over another "hush" payment made by the National Enquirer - to former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal who, like Stormy Daniels, says that she had a sexual relationship with Trump.

The countries signed the agreement but they still must individually ratify it before it can be formally implemented. He repeatedly criticized the agreement, calling it a " horrible " deal and a " disaster ".

"The behavior is so extreme and so weird", she said. Farrow also said that the mother of the alleged Trump daughter refused comment.

"Once she's part of the company, then on the outside she can't be bashing Trump and American Media", Pecker said. As a general practice, however, sources agree to be paid for their tips only upon publication.

Enquirer Editor-In-Chief Dylan Howard is quoted saying that Sajudin was then released from the deal.

Still, A.M.I. paid Sajudin tens of thousands of dollars in exchange for silence, in a manner that mirrors McDougal's experience.

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. That Pecker and Cohen acted entirely independently, spending their own money to silence allegations that the president has said are untrue.
