A former doorman at the Trump World Tower says he is now able to talk about an alleged affair that President Donald Trump had that resulted in the birth of a child, his attorney told CNN.
The doorman, Dino Sajudin, has officially been released from a contract he entered into with American Media Inc. in 2015, which kept him quiet about his knowledge of the affair Trump allegedly had with a former housekeeper, CNN reported. CNN obtained a copy of the initial agreement, which gave AMI, the owner of the National Enquirer, exclusive rights to Sajudin’s story.
The agreement does not outline the details of the doorman’s story, beyond saying that Sajudin “shall provide AMI with information regarding Donald Trump’s illegitimate child.” The contract shows that Sajudin would be paid $30,000 if the story was ever published, but explicitly says AMI doesn’t have to pay him if the company decides against publishing it. The agreement also states that Sajudin would have to pay AMI $1 million “in the event Source breaches this provision,” according to CNN.
Reports of the AMI contract comes on the heels of news that federal prosecutors granted David Pecker, AMI’s publisher, immunity in its investigation into Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen. Pecker reportedly outlined to investigators the details of payments Cohen arranged for Trump with AMI to keep women quiet about alleged affairs with the then-presidential candidate.
