So far, various outlets have documented at least three separate instances in which people close to the president made a concentrated effort to scrub damaging stories and portray the then-candidate in a more positive light, ahead of pivotal moments along the campaign.

The contract stipulated that he would have to pay a $1 million penalty if he talked about the rumor or the deal to remain quiet.

AMI also reportedly paid former Playboy model Karen McDougal $150,000 in August 2016 for her story about a nine-month affair with Trump.

For those that say that Donald Trump is the dirtiest President in American history, they should know that he was also a dirty businessman and person in general before he even ran.

Ms. Benfatto, who was married to Mr. Sajudin for 14 years but told the Daily News she hadn't spoke to him since he threatened her in 2014, said he was constantly name-dropping and gossiping to her, but never mentioned a Trump love child.

"This establishes a pattern now", said Ronan Farrow, the reporter who broke the news of the latest payoff - it's not clear when in 2015 it occurred or whether Trump was officially a candidate - in the pages of the New Yorker. "Unfortunately, however, Dino Sajudin is one fish that swam away". On Monday the office of Trump's longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and among documents reportedly seized were correspondence between Cohen, Pecker, and Howard.

But four longtime workers at the publication claim they were ordered to back-off the story before following-up potentially promising leads.

The New York Times has reported that McDougal believes that Cohen was working behind the scenes with AMI in the purchase of her story that the company had no intention of running.

He is now under investigation over McDougal's case and a $130,000 payment in 2016 to adult film star Stephanie Clifford, better known as Stormy Daniels, who also alleges she had an affair with the president. The Enquirer never ran his story however, as the tabloid says it could not verify the authenticity of his claim.

The American Media Inc. released Sajudin's contract after the 2016 United States presidential election.

"He's infamous for making up stories", Nikki Benfatto said of her former husband Dino Sajudin.

Others said stories attacking Trump's rivals - including Hillary Clinton - were not subject to the same stringent fact-checking before publication.

Stormy Daniels, left, and Karen McDougal, right, two adult entertainers with known ties to Donald Trump, centre, received payments and signed non-disclosure agreements regarding the nature of their relationships with the US president. The Associated Press reports that embattled Trump attorney Michael Cohen was involved in the deal with Sajudin. The media company later said it paid McDougal for a series of "fitness columns and magazine covers".

Among the evidence that agents sought were communications between Cohen, Pecker and the Enquirer's top editor, the New York Times reported.

"AMI categorically denies that Donald Trump or Michael Cohen had anything to do with its decision not to pursue a story about a "love child" that it determined was not credible", AMI said in its statement Thursday.
