An Ex-Trump World Tower Doorman Revealed a Contract Requiring His Silence About Trump's Alleged Affair That Resulted in a Child


A former Trump World Tower doorman is speaking out about an alleged affair President Trump had with an ex-housekeeper, which resulted in a child. CNN released the bombshell report late Friday night, along with a copy of the contract the doorman, Dino Sajudin, supposedly signed with American Media Inc. that prohibited him from discussing the matter. 

According to Sajudin's attorney, Sajudin is only going public with the story because he was recently released from the contact with AMI., which notably owns the National Enquirer — a publication whose editor was just granted immunity from federal prosecutors as they continue to investigate Trump's role in his former lawyer Michael Cohen's campaign finance violations. Earlier this week, it was also reported that the National Enquirer kept a safe with damaging stories about Trump it decided to kill because ot its "cozy" relationship with him.

The contract that CNN obtained was signed in November 2015, and says that AMI owns the rights to Sajudin's story. Beyond stating, "Source shall provide AMI with information regarding Donald Trump's illegitimate child..." the contract doesn't contain any additional details about the story. 

Furthermore, AMI pledged Sajudin a sum of $30,000 "payable upon publication" of the story, though there was no promise of compensation if the story never ran.

However, a third page of the contract shows that a month after it was signed, an amendment was added that stated Sajudin would be paid $30,000 within five days, and that the "exclusivity period" would be "extended in perpetuity and shall not expire." 

If Sajudin were to break the non-expiring "exclusivity period," he would've owed AMI $1 million. The provision would no longer be applicable if Sajudin was truly released from the contract. 

"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," Sajudin's lawyer, Marc Held, told CNN. "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."

Sajudin first told CNN about Trump's alleged affair and child in April, in the following statement: 

"Today I awoke to learn that a confidential agreement that I had with AMI (The National Enquirer) with regard to a story about President Trump was leaked to the press. I can confirm that while working at Trump World Tower I was instructed not to criticize President Trump's former housekeeper due to a prior relationship she had with President Trump, which produced a child."

At the time, The Associated Press reported that Cohen "acknowledged to the AP that he had discussed Sajudin's story with the magazine when the tabloid was working on it. He said he was acting as a Trump spokesman when he did so and denied knowing anything beforehand about the Enquirer payment to the ex-doorman."

AMI denied the story in April, but hasn't commented on CNN's new report. The White House, on the other hand, never responded to CNN's requests for comments back in April.
