In the agreement, AMI said it will continue to work with prosecutors and admit to paying McDougal.
Cohen and National Enquirer publisher David Pecker met with "at least" one other member of Trump's campaign in August 2015, the Post said.
"At the meeting, Pecker offered to help deal with negative stories about that presidential candidate’s relationships with women by, among other things, assisting the campaign in identifying such stories so they could be purchased and their publication avoided. . . . Pecker agreed to keep Cohen apprised of any such negative stories," the agreement reads.
McDougal was the first target for AMI, though the company was allegedly contacted by Stormy Daniels agent to let them know Daniels, who also claims to have had an affair with Trump, was about to sell her story to another media outlet. Pecker and National Enquirer editor Dylan Howard contacted Cohen, who eventually arranged for Daniels to be paid $130,000 to keep her silence about the affair.
