A $30000 rumour? Tabloid paid for, spiked, salacious Trump tip before election

President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen said he was aware of the story but denied knowledge of the tipster's $30,000 payday

Per Farrow's New Yorker report, Dino Sajudin signed a contract with American Media in late 2015, agreeing to become a source and accept $30K for exclusive rights to the information he had been told - that Trump may have fathered a love child in the late '80s.

That's the impression left by new reports by the New Yorker and the Associated Press detailing a $30,000 payment made by the National Enquirer's parent company to a former doorman, Dino Sajudin, who said he had heard rumors of Trump fathering a child with an employee.

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.

The woman at the centre of the rumour about Trump denied emphatically to the AP last August that she'd ever had an affair with Trump.

On Wednesday, an Enquirer sister publication, RadarOnline, published details of the payment and the rumor that Sajudin was peddling.

Michael Cohen, President Trump's longtime personal attorney, set up a shell company in DE three weeks before the 2016 election. The site noted that the AP was among a group of publications that had been investigating the ex-doorman's tip. The New Yorker, citing unidentified people, said the tabloid made "a concerted effort to shut down the story".

On Monday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Cohen's hotel room and office looking for information about the McDougal and Daniels payouts, Trump's infamous Access Hollywood tape, and communications between Cohen, Trump, Pecker, and AMI's chief content officer Dylan Howard.

Six current and former A.M.I. employees, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they feared legal retaliation by the company, said that Sajudin had told A.M.I. the names of the alleged mistress and child. And, really, who among us didn't father a love child in the 80s? The media company later said it paid McDougal for a series of "fitness columns and magazine covers". Cohen also set up an LLC in 2016 to pay porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her silence regarding an alleged 2006 one-night stand with Trump.

"The behavior is so extreme and so freaky", she said. The New Yorker has been in contact with the woman allegedly involved and her daughter, who ignored and declined requests for comment respectively.

Now. I'll leave it up to lawyers and campaign finance experts as to whether any agreements have not been fully met or whether any of these payoffs amount to an in-kind contribution to Trump's campaign.

In the tabloid world purchasing information is not uncommon.

George, the longtime former reporter and editor, said the $1 million penalty in Sajudin's agreement was larger than anything he had seen in his Enquirer career. Paying upfront was not the Enquirer's usual practice because it would have endangered the source's incentive to co-operate, he said. However, he did not know that the Enquirer gave Sajudin $30,000 for his silence. After a promise of $500, Sajudin took the polygraph test, and the administrator revealed that all his responses were truthful. However, Sajudin refused to unless he received an advance payment.
