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

A Former Trump Tower Doorman Was Allegedly Paid $30000 To Keep Quiet About Trump's Sex Life

Ms. Benfatto, who was married to Mr. Sajudin for 14 years but told the Daily News she hadn't spoke to him since he threatened her in 2014, said he was constantly name-dropping and gossiping to her, but never mentioned a Trump love child.

This week, President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, had his office in NY raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Farrow's sources all say they're skeptical about the love child claims, but all said they are sure that AMI purposely shut down the story.

The AP also wrote that, during its efforts to fill in the details behind the doorman's story and the Enquirer's payoff, "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". McDougal's story was also not published. Why, then, would the firm take a separate action for the National Enquirer's parent company that, at least on first glance, seems similar?

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.

"I spoke with the father of the family, who said that Sajudin's claim was 'completely false and ridiculous, '" Farrow continued, writing that the man complained "that the Enquirer had put the family in a hard situation".

According to New Yorker reporter Ronan Farrow, in an interview with CNN on Thursday morning, the order to pay off the doorman about the Trump out-of-wedlock child rumor came straight from Pecker himself.

Sajudin said he heard the tale from employees and residents of Trump World Tower and passed a polygraph test, RadarOnline reported.

Federal investigators looking into President Trump's personal lawyer are now questioning whether the country's largest tabloid publisher helped Trump during his presidential campaign. Prosecutors are probing whether Cohen broke banking or campaign laws in connection with AMI's payment to McDougal and a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels that Cohen said he paid out of his own pocket.

For Weinstein, no longer a Boies Schiller client, David Boies was reported to have signed a July 2017 contract with an Israeli private intelligence agency called Black Cube, which was working to undercut a potential New York Times story on Weinstein's sexual misconduct.

"When we realized we would be unable to publish ... we released Sajudin from the exclusivity clause that had accompanies his $30,000 payment", he added.

The Associated Press said it confirmed the payment to the doorman by reviewing a confidential contract and through interviews with dozens of current and former employees of the Enquirer and American Media. "Dino Sajudin is one fish that swam away".
