Sometimes it truly does feel as though I’m writing for the World Weekly News; that batty old junk that always had some story about Hillary Clinton’s Secret Alien Family.
It was the sort of thing that completely appealed to the X-Files fan in me; this kitschy, silly take on the already silly world of vampires, ghosts, sasquatches, and UFO’s. Yes, for those of you wondering: I do listen to Coast to Coast AM as often as humanly possible.
Those strange, incredibly bold headlines that you typically see in the aisle at the grocery store aren’t the sort of thing we dabble in over here. This is a lot more meat and potatoes, politickery-type stuff, with a couple of wacky metaphors and allegedly awesome alliterations thrown in for good measure.
So when I came across this late night “exclusive” that CNN was running, I was more than a bit intrigued.
Exclusive: Ex-Trump World Tower doorman releases ‘catch-and-kill’ contract about alleged Trump affair
A former Trump World Tower doorman who says he has knowledge of an alleged affair President Donald Trump had with an ex-housekeeper, which resulted in a child, is now able to talk about a contract he entered with American Media Inc. that had prohibited him from discussing the matter with anyone, according to his attorney.
On Friday, Marc Held — the attorney for Dino Sajudin, the former doorman — said his client had been released from his contract with AMI, the parent company of the National Enquirer, “recently” after back-and-forth discussions with AMI.
CNN has exclusively obtained a copy of the “source agreement” between Sajudin and AMI, which is owned by David Pecker.
Don’t worry. It gets even more confusing and juicy right here…
The contract appears to have been signed on Nov. 15, 2015, and states that AMI has exclusive rights to Sajudin’s story but does not mention the details of the story itself beyond saying, “Source shall provide AMI with information regarding Donald Trump’s illegitimate child…”
When the story surfaced in April, Sajudin told CNN about the alleged relationship in a 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.”
