Trump has denied having a relationship with either woman. Sajudin was subsequently released from the contract after the 2016 presidential election following inquiries made by the Wall Street Journal about the doorman's payment, according to AP.

Mr. Sajudin put out his or her own announcement on Thursday, expressing, "Nowadays I woke to discover a discreet agreement that I experienced with AMI (The National Enquirer) with respect to some narrative about President Trump was leaked into the media".

President Donald Trump enters the Rose Garden for an event April 12, 2018 at the White House in Washington, DC.

The reported payment to Sajudin is the latest twist in a pattern of hush money being paid to Trump accusers, and federal investigators have been interested to shine light on the communications between AMI and Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen. The deal included a $1 million penalty should Sajudin tell his story to anyone else without A.M.I. permission.

AMI, which owns the National Enquirer, offered doorman Dino Sajudin $30,000 in order to gain rights "in perpetuity" to a rumor he'd heard about Trump's sex life - that the president had a child with a Trump World Tower employee.

"When we realized we would be unable to publish, and other media outlets approached the source about his tale, we released Sajudin from the exclusivity clause that had accompanied his $30,000 payment, freeing him to tell his story to whomever he wanted", Howard told Radar Online - the Enquirer's sister site - this week.

The woman who was allegedly impregnated by Trump has denied the rumor and told the AP directly that it was not true.

The AP claims to have seen the confidential contract and, along with the New Yorker, has interviewed current and former AMI and Enquirer employees.

The men were executed by firing squad, and Amnesty said their lawyers did not have access to all of the evidence against them. The report found 93 people were executed throughout the Asia-Pacific region past year , a 28 per cent decline from 2016.

In February, it was revealed the Enquirer paid Karen McDougal for the rights to her story about an affair with Trump, then kept it from coming out in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election.

The housekeeper and her child have not been named in news reports, and Sajudin's claim remain unverified.

The New Yorker added that sources within AMI said they believed catch-and-kill operations had cemented a "partnership" between Trump and David Pecker, the group's CEO.

Pecker and Cohen are longtime friends who strategised throughout the campaign about how to assist Trump's bid and counter salacious rumours that might surface about him, according to two people with knowledge of their relationship.

Cohen is now under investigation by Mueller's office for his ties to the Trump campaign, which is alleged to have conspired with Russian officials to win the 2016 election.

The tabloid company gave her US$150,000 and an opportunity to publish fitness columns in AMI magazines. McDougal's story has generated significant public interest due its connections with the Stormy Daniels saga, which recently culminated in the FBI's raid on the offices of Michael Cohen, the president's personal lawyer.

Paying for a catch-and-kill story is unto itself not a crime, however whether or not these payments were made with campaign funds may be the smoking gun.
