Cohen Arranged Payment for RNC Bigwig After Affair

Michael Cohen orchestrated $1.6M payoff to squash affair rumors for RNC big

Elliott Broidy resigned today as deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee after the revelation that he had agreed to pay $1.6 million to a former Playboy model who became pregnant during an affair.

As described by these sources, certain details of this NDA are identical to some of the ones in the Daniels case.

The matter might have remained personal, as the relations between a California businessman and a Playmate is nothing unusual in Tinseltown, but Broidy reportedly helped raise over $108 million in funding for Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and donated more than $160,000 to the RNC a year ago.

The source says it allows the woman to speak about and take legal action concerning her alleged pregnancy if she so chooses. The money was to be paid to her over two years in quarterly settlements, with the first payment due on December 1, sources told WSJ. Broidy's financial support came alongside access to Trump, helping him regain political status after his 2009 plea deal admitting to making illegal gifts to New York State officials. The agreement, however, said it didn't resolve claims as to the alleged pregnancy and paternity of the baby. The search warrant reportedly sought information related to the Daniels payment, as well as a $150,000 payment by National Enquirer's parent company in 2016 to buy the rights of claims made by another Playboy model, Karen McDougal that she had an affair with Trump.

The Broidy agreement used the pseudonyms David Dennison and Peggy Peterson, the paper reported.

Michael Cohen, whose home and office were raided this week by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents searching in part for information about payoffs to women alleging sexual encounters with Trump, handled the matter on behalf of the fundraiser, Elliott Broidy, the person said.

"I acknowledge I had a consensual relationship with a Playboy Playmate", Broidy, who is married, said in Friday statement.

Broidy, a former member of the commission that oversees the Los Angeles city Fire and Police Pension Fund, said it was "unfortunate" that his affair - which occurred "between two consenting adults" has become the "subject of a national discussion just because of Michael Cohen's involvement".

Broidy added that he retained Cohen's services to strike the deal due to Cohen's prior relationship with Keith Davidson, the unnamed woman's attorney.

Michael Cohen reportedly negotiated a $1.6 million settlement on behalf of Republican fundraiser Elliot Broidy.

The deal bears remarkable similarities to an agreement reached between Donald Trump and porn star Stormy Daniels that was signed by Cohen and Daniels, but not Trump.

A spokesman for Davidson gave the Journal the good ol' Glomar response, neither confirming nor denying an agreement existed.

Cohen and Davidson did not respond to requests for comment. He did not immediately respond to a Law&Crime request for comment.
