Former Playboy Model Admits Ever Be a Trump Affair

Washington DC
President of the United States (USA) Donald Trump again hit by news of infidelity. A former model of Playboy magazine claimed he had a relationship with Trump, after Trump married Melania. As reported by CNN on Saturday (17/2/2018), Karen McDougal, now 46 years old, became the model of Playboy magazine in the 90s and has become Playmate of the Year in 1998. He revealed his illicit relationship with Trump through an eight-page handwritten document obtained by US media The New Yorker.

The document was obtained The New Yorker from one of McDougal's friends. To The New Yorker McDougal admits the document was handwritten by him. The New Yorker published the story of McDougal on Friday (16/2) local time.

In the document, McDougal explained that his love affair with Trump was intertwined for nine months, between June 2006 and April 2007. At that time, Trump's marriage to Melania was only two years old. Their son, Barron, was only a few months old.

McDougal recounts the way Trump had a relationship with her then. Starting from Trump paying dinner at a private bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel, then offering money to McDougal after the two had sex for the first time and Trump always replaced McDougal's travel expenses when the two met.

"There is no trace of paper for him," wrote McDougal in the document, as quoted The New Yorker . McDougal refers to Trump who always hides his relationship and how Trump covers himself who pays for McDougal's activities.

McDougal admits he was in a conscious relationship with Trump. Their relationship ended after 9 months, because McDougal felt guilty. A number of sources and friends of McDougal said there was a Trump comment that made McDougal offended. One of them when Trump mentions McDougal's mother who does not approve of their relationship, as ' old hag ' (the name for ugly old ladies).

After ending his relationship with Trump, McDougal signed an exclusive right-of-life title contract with American Media Inc. (AMI) in August 2016. AMI is a media publisher National Enquirer who often releases articles that support Trump. McDougal sold his romance with Trump to AMI for US $ 150 thousand.

But in practice, AMI never published the story of McDougal. According to The New Yorker the owner of AMI, David Pecker, who is a friend of Trump, allegedly deliberately bought McDougal's story right to cover it from the public and other media. AMI said it did not publish McDougal's story because it was not credible. This mode is thought to be the way Trump and his people to silence McDougal.

To The New Yorker McDougal claimed regret ever signing the contract. "It's grabbing my rights right now I feel I can not talk about anything without triggering problems, because I do not know what I can talk about, I'm even afraid to mention his name," McDougal said.

Now, McDougal hopes with himself open voice will convince other women to avoid a similar contract. The New Yorker mentions McDougal refusing to speak before the presidential election was held in November 2016. He claimed not to influence the outcome of the election.

Responding to this report, the White House immediately expressed its denial. "This is an old story that is nothing more than fake news.The president says he has never had a relationship with McDougal," the White House spokesman said in a statement.

The story of McDougal comes after a crowded media preach a porn actress named Stephanie Clifford aka Stormy Daniels who also claimed to have an affair with Trump, before he served as President of the United States. Most recently, Trump's private lawyer, Michael Cohen, admitted to paying $ 130,000 from his own pocket, to Clifford not to reveal the affair to the public. Payments made before the US presidential election was held in 2016.

Chief Thai Police Chief Admits Borrowing Money from Brothel Owners

Former Chief of Police of Thailand, Somyot Poompanmoung, claimed to have received a loan from a brothel owner who is now a fugitive over sex trade cases. The loan was called to reach the amount of US $ 9.5 million (Rp 126.9 billion).

As reported by AFP Thursday (15/2/2018), in the interrogation held today, Somyot reported has admitted to receiving large amounts of money loan at Bangkok's 'Victoria Secret' brothel owner, who is now the focus of a sex trade probe.

The place has permission as a massage place, but in practice it becomes a brothel. The brothel was raided by police last month, with about 100 sex workers secured. There are at least 13 sex trafficking victims among the sex workers, some of whom are underage and known to have originated from Myanmar.

But to journalists, Somyot is reluctant to disclose his testimony during interrogation by the Special Investigation Department DSI) to the Thai Police. He was asked about his relationship with Kampol Wirathepsuporn, owner of 'Victoria Secret' who is now a fugitive. "I am here as a witness to give information, I can not talk about the details," said Somyot who now runs the Thai Football Association.

This place is one of the 'massage parlors' in Bangkok that offer sex services in dozens of booths private bathub equipped. Prostitution is technically a violation of the law in Thailand. But the prostitution industry is growing rapidly due to the culture of bribery and protection money from local authorities. The raid of a plus-plus massage parlor like this is only done when there is an alleged involvement of minors.

In the raid of 'Victoria Secret' some time ago, found a big book mentioning 20 names of officials allegedly receiving free food, free liquor and even free massage from illegal business.

At least seven pimps and related agencies' Victoria Secret 'has been detained on trafficking charges. But Kampol and his wife are still at large. The Thai authorities are still investigating officials suspected of 'protecting' the brothel.

In a separate statement, the Director of the Bureau of Trafficking in DSI Supat Thamthanarug confirmed that no criminal charges were charged to Somyot in this case.

Last week , Somyot had called Kampol an old friend who helped him financially when needed. Somyot said the loans from Kampol were granted according to the legal corridor and reported to the Anti-Corruption Agency by 2015. It was clear that Somyot was still Chief of the National Police of Thailand

"Borrowing is borrowing, helping is helpful and afterwards the money returned, "said Somyot who tried to brush off allegations of lawlessness against him. He also declared himself not asking where the borrowed money came from.

The relationship between the high-ranking police officer and the brothel owner still provokes the Thai public's attention. Some time ago, Thai Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan was pushed back because of the dozens of luxury watches he wore in recent years.
