Elliott Broidy, RNC deputy finance chair, resigns amid reports of Playmate payoff

Elliott Broidy, RNC deputy finance chair, resigns amid reports of Playmate payoff”

US President Donald Trump's personal lawyer arranged for a $US1.6 million payment to a Playboy Playmate to keep secret her sexual relationship with a top Republican fundraiser and ally of Trump, a person familiar with the matter says.

According to another source familiar with Broidy's agreement with the former Playboy model, she was to be paid the $1.6 million over a period of two years on a quarterly basis, and the first payment was made in December 2017.

Keith Davidson, the former attorney for Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, represented the woman, making it the second known "hush money" deal Davidson brokered with Cohen.

The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity, was confirming a report by the Wall Street Journal. He said Cohen reached out to him after being contacted by Davidson and said he retained Trump's lawyer "after he informed me about his prior relationship with Mr. Davidson". Until Friday, they both served as deputy national finance chairmen there. "She alone decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy, and I offered to help her financially during this hard period", Broidy said in a statement following both reports.

The agreement set up by Cohen bars the unidentified woman from discussing her relationship with Broidy.

Michael Cohen, the personal lawyer of President Donald Trump, reportedly used the same pseudonyms for Republican National Committee fundraiser Elliott Broidy and a Playboy Playmate in a settlement deal that he used for Trump and porn star Stormy Daniels in another non-disclosure agreement. "She alone decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy and I offered to help her financially during this hard period".

This means she would not have been paid the entirety of the $1.6 million yet - and there's a chance she may not get the rest of the money.

In tweets on Thursday night, Avenatti said, "In last 18 mos, Mr. Cohen negotiated yet another hush NDA, this time on behalf of a prominent GOP donor who had a relationship with a LA woman, impregnated her and then made sure she had an abortion".

Broidy apologized to his family in his statement: "It is unfortunate that this personal matter between two consenting adults is the subject of national discussion just because of Michael Cohen's involvement".

Friday's revelation focuses more attention on Cohen, a longtime Trump confidant whose residences and office were raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation earlier this week.

Cohen and Broidy met during the 2016 campaign, when Broidy, a California native and major GOP donor, emerged as a key financial backer of the RNC. The raid stemmed from information gathered during the course of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling but is part of a separate federal investigation. Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, is now suing Trump and Cohen to have the agreement tossed out.
