former president. To carry out the hush payments to Stormy Daniels, Bragg claims, Trump falsified dozens of business records.
Here is what you need to know about those three "catch and kill" claims:
The first "catch and kill" prosecutors described allegedly involved a former doorman at Trump World Tower, a 72-story residential building located 14 blocks from Trump Tower. In late 2015, Pecker learned that the doorman, Dino Sajudin, was shopping information, later discredited, accusing Trump of fathering a child out of wedlock. Trump has always denied the claim.
Without investigating the matter, prosecutors claimed, Pecker brokered a deal to pay Sajudin $30,000 in order for the National Enquirer to have exclusive rights to his story.
When Pecker subsequently concluded that Sajudin's claim was untrue, prosecutors wrote, he sought to call off the arrangement. But Cohen "instructed" Pecker to wait until after the presidential election before doing so, prosecutors claimed, and Pecker complied.
In a February 2018 interview with ABC News, Sajudin told George Stephanopoulos that he initially expected Pecker's tabloid to run his story after purchasing it from him.
"The Enquirer prints stories, so I figured they wanted to report the story," Sajudin said. "But now, as I look back on things ... they were just pretty much trying to quiet me down."
