Former doorman was paid $30K to keep quiet over Trump rumor

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, who worked at one of Trump's NY establishments, is understood to have approached AMI's National Enquirer with information he'd been told about Trump's sex life in late 2015, after the real-estate mogul announced he was running for president. (AMI) gave Dino Sajudin $30,000 to gain rights "in perpetuity" regarding a rumor the ex-doorman had heard.

Sajudin was reportedly subject to a $1 million penalty if he broke his agreement.

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

The Enquirer endorsed Trump's campaign, and the AP notes the tabloid published articles claiming Trump opponent Hillary Clinton was a bisexual "secret sex freak" and survived on a "narcotics cocktail".

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. Marla Maples, Trump's second wife and the mother of his daughter Tiffany, has made that crystal clear for years. They said they were ordered by top editors to stop pursuing the story. "These claims are reckless, unsubstantiated, and false". Trump has denied he engaged in any affair with McDougal. 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". Both the Associated Press and the New Yorker reported the payment Thursday. The efforts to cover them up, most prominently through Cohen's payment to adult-film actress Stephanie Clifford, speak to how Trumpworld functioned, and whether Trump associates may have violated the law in an effort to get him elected. "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.




They tabloid paid former Playboy playmate Karen McDougal $150,000 for the story of her alleged affair with Trump, but never published it.

Now, get this ... he claims, "On one occasion immediately after the 2016 presidential election, Mr. Sciricco told Mr. Sajudin 'I hope Trump gets rid of you all'".

The Enquirer's Howard said the magazine released Sajudin from his exclusivity clause when he was approached by the other outlets.

The Enquirer dispatched reporters to pursue the story both in NY and in California. RadarOnline also said that the AP too was investigating the doorman's tip and was threatened by AMI for interviewing Trump's current and former employees.

Trump's personal attorney, Cohen, has separately said he paid $130,000 to Stephanie Clifford, a porn actress who performs under the name Stormy Daniels, to remain silent about her alleged affair with Trump.
