Trump World Tower Doorman Is Free to Discuss President’s Alleged Affair with Ex-Housekeeper

David Boddiger Aug 25, 2018. 21 comments

Another scandalous accusation kept quiet for years by American Media Inc., publisher of the National Enquirer, is about to drop on Donald Trump’s head.

CNN reported on Saturday that AMI has released former Trump World Tower doorman Dino Sajudin from a so-called “catch-and-kill” contract that would have made him liable for a $1 million payment had he gone public with his story.

Last April, several news organizations reported that Sajudin had knowledge that Trump had an affair with a former housekeeper that resulted in a child. AMI bought the exclusive rights to that story in November 2015 for $30,000. Then, the publishing company killed the story.

The deal with Sajudin was made just months after Trump launched his presidential campaign , as Splinter reported at the time.

CNN published the contract here.

All of that has now changed since prosecutors offered AMI’s owner, David Pecker, who for years was a close Trump ally, immunity in exchange for his cooperation in the investigation of “catch-and-kill” schemes to protect then-candidate Trump from public revelations of his numerous extramarital affairs with porn stars, models, and apparently, housekeepers.

Back in April, a source close to the White House told The New Yorker that Trump “did not have an affair. This is a totally false accusation.” The source then referred The New Yorker to AMI.

But an even bigger bombshell dropped on Trumpland with reporting Friday that Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg, who has worked for the Trump family since the 1970s, has flipped, too. Weisselberg, Trump’s money man, has been given full immunity in exchange for his cooperation, which means he undoubtedly has something of substance to offer investigators.

For example, Trump continues to refuse to make his tax filings public. But that no longer matters, because the feds—who probably already had them since the start of the investigation—now have the guy responsible for overseeing their preparation. More than anyone else, Weisselberg knows where all the bodies—and the money—are buried. In a word, Trump is screwed.

Sajudin’s accusations likely will add an extra layer of legal problems for the president. His attorney, Marc Held, told CNN: “Mr. Sajudin has been unable to discuss the circumstances regarding his deal with American Media Inc. and the story that he sold to them, due to a significant financial penalty. Just recently, AMI released Mr. Sajudin from the terms of his agreement and he is now able to speak about his personal experience with them, as well as his story, which is now known to be one of the ‘catch and kill’ pieces. Mr. Sajudin hopes the truth will come out in the very near future.”

We’re expecting it will.
