National Enquirer CEO David Pecker Gets Immunity On Trump [VIDEO]

Well, this just made everyone’s life just a little bit more interesting today. David Pecker, CEO of the National Enquirer and friend of Donald Trump, has just gotten immunity in the Michael Cohen case.

Hold on to your butts, as Samuel L. Jackson once said in Jurassic Park.

Considering all of the crazed things the Enquirer published about Ted Cruz during the 2016 primary race, and the known friendship between Donald Trump and David Pecker, this has all the makings of tabloid gold.

So, how did Pecker end up getting immunity in the Cohen case? It was American Media, Inc., the company that actually publishes the National Enquirer, that made the payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal.

In exchange for immunity, Mr. Pecker, CEO of American Media, Inc., has met with prosecutors and shared details about payments Mr. Cohen arranged in an effort to silence two women who alleged sexual encounters with Mr. Trump, including Mr. Trump’s knowledge of the deals, some of the people familiar said. Prosecutors have indicated that Mr. Pecker won’t be criminally charged for his participation in the deals, the people said.

Mr. Pecker’s assistance appeared to have informed the charging documents made public on Tuesday as part of Mr. Cohen’s guilty plea to eight criminal charges, including campaign-finance violations tied to the payments.

During his guilty-plea hearing, Mr. Cohen, Mr. Trump’s former personal lawyer, said that at Mr. Trump’s direction, he broke federal laws on campaign contributions by coordinating payments to the two women for the purpose of suppressing negative information about Mr. Trump and influencing the 2016 election.

American Media executives were involved in both hush-money deals that formed the basis of Mr. Cohen’s guilty plea to campaign-finance violations, prosecutors said. One was a $130,000 payment to Stephanie Clifford—a former porn actress who goes professionally by Stormy Daniels—to keep her from publicly discussing an alleged affair with Mr. Trump.

The second was a $150,000 payment made to former Playboy model Karen McDougal for her exclusive story of an alleged extramarital affair with Mr. Trump, a story that was purchased by American Media in August 2016 at Mr. Cohen’s urging, and then never published.

So, is anyone else tired of the reality show that we currently seem to be living in?

Well, at least we can maintain our sense of humor, right?
