Did Trump Pay Hush Money to Conceal His Illegitimate Love Child?

Another day and another level deeper in the personal tawdriness that is Trump and his mob lawyer, Cohen.

The story of how The National Enquirer’s owner bought and spiked a story about an alleged Donald Trump "love child" is now roiling the media world, as The Associated Press acknowledged having decided not to publish it last August, before turning around and doing so on Thursday morning. Other outlets now admit they, too, had worked on the story before backing off.

In August, AP Executive Editor Sally Buzbee informed colleagues on a conference call that their monthslong investigation into how the Enquirer-parent company American Media Inc. had bought and squashed the love-child story during the 2016 election would not be published.

The decision frustrated many in the newsroom who believed the AP’s story, buttressed by extensive sources and documentation, was rock solid and clearly newsworthy. Horwitz even left the AP newsroom for several days after the decision before being persuaded by management to return, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.

They paid him 30,000 hush money so he wouldn't spread a lie? I don't think so. What's Trump got to do to earn GOP disapproval?

They reported that American Media Inc. paid $30,000 to Dino Sajudin, a former doorman at a Trump building, for the rights to a rumor that Trump had fathered a child decades back with a former employee. Sajudin could be forced to pay $1 million if he broke the agreement, they reported.

Decades ago?  Why wouldn't the "kid" have come out/forward by now if this was the case?

This is just getting out of control. You people just can't leave Donny alone. Next thing you know, you'll be accusing him of enjoying golden showers. :P

Maybe the kid is being paid to keep its mouth shut.

Kid may have been paid off far better.

Stop and think for a minute. This is typical of the threads posted here daily. It typifies the absolute desperation of leftists who have been reduced to dumpster diving, in an effort to destroy a duly elected President. Who gives a rat’s rump whether a private citizen had an affair, way back when, or paid hush money? Did any Dems care when Bill Clinton had numerous affairs? LBJ? JFK?  This crappolla is all that’s left, since the phony Russian collusion narrative has gone by the wayside.

The New York Post is a Murdoch-owned paper

The ex-doorman for a Trump property in Manhattan was paid $30,000 by the National Enquirer to spill allegations that Donald Trump had an out-of-wedlock child, but the story was never published.

On Thursday, he identified the woman who had the child as a former housekeeper for the future president.

“Today I awoke to learn that a confidential agreement I had with AMI (The National Enquirer) with regard to a story about President Trump was leaked to the press,” Dino Sajudin said in a statement.

“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 that produced a child.”

And let's be brutally clear. Bill Clinton was impeached about lying about lying about consensual fellatio. If you're upset because a president's indiscretions are suddenly fair play, you have no one but Gingrich, Star, and Hastert to blame.

Meanwhile... no one cares about Trump messing around on his third wife. It's the fact that he funneled campaign contributions into Trump Org into a secret shell company into hush money to a porn star that matters.

Guess what? That's fraud and a violation of campaign finance laws. If the president broke the law, he should be held accountable.

So, why is Trump having daily hissy fits about Mueller?

He's sure acting like someone who has a lot of legal skeletons in his closet.

His wife says he’s a serial liar, and there are other tall tales he’s made up for opportunitistic purposes. Imagine that!

WASHINGTON 

The Justice Department special counsel has evidence that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

Confirmation of the trip would lend credence to a retired British spy’s report that Cohen strategized there with a powerful Kremlin figure about Russian meddling in the U.S. election.

It would also be one of the most significant developments thus far in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of whether the Trump campaign and the Kremlin worked together to help Trump win the White House. Undercutting Trump’s repeated pronouncements that “there is no evidence of collusion,” it also could ratchet up the stakes if the president tries, as he has intimated he might for months, to order Mueller’s firing.

Trump’s threats to fire Mueller or the deputy attorney general overseeing the investigation, Rod Rosenstein, grew louder this week when the FBI raided Cohen’s home, hotel room and office on Monday. The raid was unrelated to the Trump-Russia collusion probe, but instead focused on payments made to women who have said they had sexual relationships with Trump.

The only people talking about Trump firing Mueller are Democrats. It’s what the media does to keep you rubes in a perpetual state of outrage. You’re Exhibit A.

Right... find the endless posts of me speculating about Trump firing Mueller.

You guys are growing increasingly desperate and unhinged. I guess that's what happens when you find out that, yes, you really did support a moronic crook for POTUS

We will see if Trump costs those people as many seats as Obama lost you people. That would be pretty hard to do. Impossible? Of course not. The Democratic-Socialists would have to promise bunches of “freebies” to make that happen.

Why does that even matter?

If the dems retake the house by winning 25 seats, the results will be largely the same.

And, if they retake the Senate, they'll have done something the GOP didn't do in 2010.

Meanwhile, we're learning that the DOJ got secret warrants to look at Cohen's emails and has been doing so for some time.
