The National Enquirer reportedly possessed a safe that contained damaging stories about President Trump that it had killed in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election.

The Associated Press reported Thursday that the tabloid kept these items under lock and key as part of its friendly relationship with then-candidate Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign. 

Multiple people familiar with National Enquirer’s parent company, American Media Inc., told AP that the safe was “a great source of power” for National Enquirer publisher David Pecker. 

The records related to Trump were reportedly stored alongside documents related to other celebrities’ catch-and-kill deals, an agreement in which exclusive rights to someone’s story are bought with no intention of publishing the story.
