National Enquirer publisher David Pecker has an immunity deal in place regarding the probe into Michael Cohen’s and President Trump’s involvement with payoffs and buried scandals. He’s a long-time friend and confidant of the President.
He’s also a gatekeeper to many skeletons in Trump’s closet.
The feds have granted immunity to two top execs of the National Enquirer’s publisher so they can spill their guts about the roles President Trump and Michael Cohen played in hush- money payoffs to a porn star and former Playboy Playmate.
In exchange for their cooperation, David Pecker (right), CEO of American Media Inc., and Dylan Howard, the company’s chief content officer, won’t face prosecution for their roles in the payoffs, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.
Now that he has a deal, everyone’s wondering if he’s going to flip on the guy whose magazine he once published. The answer should be pretty obvious. There would be no need for the prosecution to grant him immunity in the Cohen case since Trump’s former lawyer already plead guilty. The only thing Pecker could possibly offer is information on Trump’s inner circle… or the President himself.
Pecker allegedly has a vault that holds proof linking the President to payoffs of porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy’s Karen McDougal. This immunity means any documents linking Trump or someone other than Cohen who revolves around Trump are likely in investigators’ hands.
