According to both stories, American Media Inc paid $30,000 to former Trump building doorman Dino Sajudin for the rights to a secondhand rumor he heard regarding a child Trump supposedly fathered during an extramarital affair he had in the late '80s when he was married to his first wife, Ivana Trump.
The New Yorker has uncovered no evidence that Trump fathered the child.
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 objective of burying it. It's also common knowledge that Trump is close personal friends with David Pecker, the chairman and C.E.O. of A.M.I. 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". "Threats, muscle-flexing, macho nicknames - Trump is finally bringing his background in pro wrestling to our foreign policy", he said, introducing a new WWE star, El Trumpo Loco.
Dino Sajudin, a former Trump Tower doorman, has spoken out about reportedly being paid $30,000 in 2015 by the National Enquirer to keep quiet about an extramarital affair President Donald Trump reportedly had in the 1980s.
Mattis Says US Military Still Assessing Intelligence on Alleged Chemical Attack
Mattis was referring to global investigating teams from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). Germany refused to take part in the US -led war in Iraq, and in 2011 abstained from a U.N.
Dylan Howard, editor-in-chief of the Enquirer, denied the company was "catching and killing" stories to protect Trump, saying the story was not published because the claims could not be proven. And if nothing else, the newest example builds the circumstantial case that something was afoot as Trump was trying to win the presidency. Daniels, who claims to have had a sexual relationship with Trump in 2006, was forced to sign a non-disclosure agreement barring her from speaking out about the alleged affair, although she and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, have since claimed the NDA is moot because Trump himself did not sign the document.
"This establishes a pattern now", said Farrow.
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 National Enquirer has also denied that Trump and Cohen had any role in its decision to squash the doorman's story, citing that the story's lack of credibility led it to be shelved. It said it then released Sajudin from the terms of the contract that stopped him from talking with other media outlets.
Facebook in 'arms race' with Russia
Zuckerberg described Facebook as an "idealistic and optimistic company" which focuses on the positive aspect of connecting people. When asked if his employees had been interviewed, he also responded yes, but added, "I have not", reports CNN.
Sajudin was paid $500 down to take a lie detector to confirm that he was telling the truth about what he had heard, which he passed.
In a series of early morning raids, federal agents searched for information related to Cohen's work for Trump, including records tied to secret deals with alleged mistresses, media organizations and the 2016 presidential campaign, sources told ABC News.
"If there's no money involved with it", he said, "I'm not getting involved". 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 development follows a report last month that former playboy model Karen McDougal sued AMI so she could break her silence about an alleged affair she had with Trump. Her mother did not respond to repeated requests for comment.
