Now that Robert Mueller, the FBI, CNN, most Democrats and MSNBC have opened the floodgates of criticism and claims against Donald Trump, how do we separate fact from fiction? And does it really matter anyway?

A former Trump World Tower doorman said Friday he’s been released from a contract that kept his story — claiming Donald Trump had a love child with a housekeeper — under wraps at the National Enquirer.

The one-time doorman, Dino Sajudin, is now free to discuss the tale once under lock and key of American Media Inc., whose owner David Pecker is a close pal of Trump’saccording to CNN.

Breaking news: Rich guys like pretty girls.

Pecker is famous for “catch and kill” stories – paying people for the rights to their potentially embarrassing tales about Trump and keeping the sordid accusations locked away.

“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.”

The cable news network reported that it had obtained the “source agreement” contract between AMI and Sajudin.

The deal was dated on Nov. 15, 2015 and said AMI had full rights to Sajudin’s story.

“Source shall provide AMI with information regarding Donald Trump’s illegitimate child,” according to the contract.

Pecker’s treasure trove of “catch and kill” stories could be flooding out soon after prosecutors gave Pecker immunity in the ongoing investigation of illegal campaign donations.

Trump’s former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to charges this week, telling prosecutors that his then-candidate boss ordered him to make illegal payments to cover up embarrassing stories.

Catalan Mayors Exercise Right to Remain Silent in Referendum Questioning

September 19, 2017

BARCELONA — The first of hundreds of Catalan mayors summoned to answer questions on why they have backed a banned Oct. 1 referendum on independence from Spain appeared before the state prosecutor on Tuesday amid cheers and chants from supporters.

The first three mayors to declare exercised their right to remain silent, the Association of Municipalities for Independence (AMI) said.

Years of separatist feeling in the industrial northeastern region will come to a head in less than two weeks as the fiercely pro-independence regional government calls a referendum on splitting from Spain.

Madrid has declared the referendum illegal and the Constitutional Court has suspended the vote that was approved by the regional government earlier this month.

So far, 745 of 948 municipal leaders have said they will provide venues for the referendum.

“Voting is not a crime,” said Marc Solsona, mayor of the town of Mollerussa, one of nearly 750 mayors facing charges of civil disobedience, abuse of office and misuse of public funds, as he left the state prosecutor’s office in Barcelona.

“I’m just the mayor and I have to serve my people. I am committed to the people being able to vote on Oct. 1 in accordance with the law passed by the Catalan parliament and what happens to me is not important,” he said.

Solsona smiled, kissed and gripped hands with dozens of clapping supporters gathered outside the state prosecutor’s office as he entered to chants of ‘You are not alone’

“We consider ourselves privileged to have a mayor who represents the townspeople above any other interests – political or financial,” said 63-year-old pensioner Angel Tena, who had traveled to Barcelona to support the mayor.

Separately, police continued their search for ballot boxes, voting papers and campaign leaflets on Wednesday, raiding the offices of Spain’s biggest private delivery company Unipost in the Catalan city of Terrassa, Spanish media reported.

Neither the police nor the Interior Ministry could confirm the raid, but footage showed dozens of people gathered outside the company’s offices chanting ‘Out with the occupying forces,’ handing out voting papers and laying carnations on police cars.

Unipost confirmed the raid without giving further details.

Although polls show less than half of Catalonia’s 5.5 million voters want self-rule, most in the wealthy northeastern region want the chance to vote on the issue.
