Trump’s Doorman Given $30K to Remain Silent on Trump’s Alleged Affair
The same corporation that former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal says paid her $150,000 for contractual rights to her story on an affair she claims to have had with Donald Trump, also put up $30,000 to keep a former Trump World Tower doorman from going public with knowledge he claimed to have about an affair and illegitimate child the President allegedly had in the late 1980’s.
“I was instructed not to criticize President Trump’s former housekeeper due to a prior relationship she had with President Trump which produced a child,” says former Trump Organization employee Dino Sajudin. Sajudin claims that in late 2015 he was approached by American Media, Inc. and offered the five-digit sum in a deal that gave rights to what he knew over to the National Enquirer.
Although the hotel housekeeper identified in his claim has since denied the reports in interviews with the Associated Press and the New Yorker, the agreement indeed required Sajudin to take a lie detector test, which he passed at the time. The corporation, which has deep ties to the Trump family, had apparently heard through the grape-vine that Sajudin was exposed to the secret relationship and love-child by a high-level executive in the organization.
McDougal and Sajudin’s accounts have taken on a special focus since the raiding of Trump’s personal attorney’s office earlier this week. Investigators are reportedly looking into whether parties, such as American Media, Inc. have been buying the secrecy of those who know of Trump scandals, by purchasing the rights to their accounts and then burying the stories.
Their curiosity is partly stoked by the fact that after facing a $1 million penalty should he violate non-disclosure terms, Sajudin was altogether released from the contract following the 2016 election.
National Enquirer exec. Dylan Howard has rejected that the company chooses to do business in the manner they have in any way implicates the President.
“AMI categorically denies that Donald Trump or Michael Cohen had anything to do with its decision not to pursue a story about a ‘love child’ that it determined was not credible,” Howard told the Washington Post. “The suggestion that [AMI Chief Executive] David Pecker has ever used company funds to ‘shut down’ this or any investigation is not true.”
