A former National Enquirer bureau chief says that there is a trove of stories about President Donald Trump in a safe - and he revealed what kind of stories are being locked away from the public.
"Quite a Pandora's box..."
Jerry George revealed the details about the safe at the tabloid magazine during a CNN interview Friday, saying that the publication had a policy of being friendly to Trump during his candidacy for the presidency. George says he worked at the Los Angeles office of the National Enquirer.
"It could turn out to be quite a Pandora's box," George explained, "I mean anything sensitive, any story that might be potentially litigious, even post-publication, the actual file, and the contracts would be held in that safe.
"So there's a lot of interesting information on a lot of important people kept on hard copy in a safe," he added.
George described Trump as a "silent editor" at the publication, which gave him power to approve stories and to kill other stories. Trump's friendship with Enquirer publisher David Pecker had come under suspicion during the primaries, but a recent report indicated that Pecker had been given immunity by federal prosecutors investigating campaign finance violations.
"I know stories involving, you know, marital discord," he said. "I know of stories of infidelities on the president's part, and also stories on the children, I mean, between the Trumps and the Kushners, they have more skeletons in the closet than the Adam's Family, as the old joke goes."
"There's a lot of material there," he claimed.
George said that the stories also involved Trump's ex-wives, and his current wife, first lady Melania Trump.
"Very little is reported on their personal life," he said, "and the National Enquirer which prides itself on being the investigative tabloid that can eke out the most sensational stories, turned a blind eye to everything that was unpleasant in that family."
