Trump fathered a child with an employee — according to ex-doorman paid off by National Enquirer: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump may have fathered a child with an employee and then paid to keep the situation under wraps, according to newly revealed documents.

The Associated Press confirmed the National Enquirer paid $30,000 to a former doorman at Trump World Tower in exchange with the perpetual rights to a story he’d heard about the child.

The payment came eight months before the tabloid paid $150,000 to former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal, and it raises new questions about how the National Enquirer and attorney Michael Cohen fought to protect Trump’s reputation during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The tabloid’s deal with ex-doorman Dino Sajudin effectively prohibited him from going public with rumors he had heard about Trump’s relationship with a woman who worked at the Trump Organization property near the United Nations.

The contract subjected Sajudin to a $1 million penalty if he revealed the rumor or terms of the hush agreement to anyone.

Federal investigators raided Cohen’s home, hotel and office on Monday seeking, among other evidence, communications between Cohen, publisher American Media’s chief executive and the Enquirer’s top editor.

RadarOnline, which is also published by American Media, published a story on the rumor Wednesday and said the Enquirer spent four weeks pursuing the story but ultimately decided it wasn’t true.

But four longtime staffers told the AP they were ordered by top editors to stop reporting on the story — which they described as promising.

The former Trump World Tower employee denied having an affair with Trump and said she had no idea the tabloid had paid Sajudin or pursued the information he claimed to have.

The AP has not been able to confirm the rumor and did not name the woman, who said the story was “all fake.”

Sajudin told the AP he would only tell his story in exchange for money.

Every person who testified before Congress has said that Trump's obsession with Joe Biden was concerning enough to alert others. Even National Security Council aide Tim Morrison stressed that he didn’t believe there was anything inappropriate about the call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. But when Rep. Val Demmings (D-FL) asked him why then he felt the need to report it if there was nothing wrong, Morrison struggled to find an answer.

CNN legal analyst flattens Rick Santorum for ridiculous impeachment defense of Trump

Published

on

Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum was shut down on CNN for his latest defense of President Donald Trump.

Santorum was effectively arguing for people to ignore the words coming from Trump.

"Wait, this argument is insane," Carrie Cordero said. "You cannot argue that the president of the United States' words do not matter or that he's just sort of spouting off or he has his own views."

"The reality is we ignore 80 to 90% of what the president says," Santorum argued. "Look at the tweets, we ignore most of those things he tweets and say 'it's Trump being Trump.'"

Then CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin flattened Santorum.
