President Trump at one point devised a plan to buy decades’ worth of unflattering stories the National Enquirer had collected about him but never published, according to a new report.

Under the plan, which was never completed, Trump and his then-attorney, Michael Cohen, sought to buy all the dirt that the Enquirer and its parent company, American Media Inc., had amassed on him since the 1980s, several of the president’s associates told The New York Times.

The article goes on to state the following:

Some of the stories were reportedly kept in a safe but it was unclear whether the information still exists after it was moved to another location around the time of Trump’s inauguration, according to The Associated Press.

The existence of the plan to buy the material has not been previously reported, but it was hinted at in a recording that Cohen’s attorney, Lanny Davis, released about a conversation his client had with Trump.

“It’s all the stuff — all the stuff, because you never know,” Cohen said on the secret recording in which the president appears to discuss a possible payment to buy the rights to Playboy model Karen McDougal’s affair claim.

In exchange for their cooperation, AMI CEO David Pecker and Dylan Howard, the company’s chief content officer, won’t face prosecution for their roles in payoffs, according to The Wall Street Journal.
