Who is Elliott Broidy? Trump Lawyer Cohen Arranged Payment to 'Playboy' Model Who GOP Donor Impregnated: Report

Elliott Broidy, a prominent Republican fundraiser, resigned Friday from his position as a deputy finance chair of the Republican National Committee in the wake of a report that Michael Cohen, President Trump's personal lawyer, arranged for Broidy to pay $1.6 million to a former Playboy model who claimed that Broidy impregnated her previous year.

A top finance official at the Republican National Committee is resigning after it was revealed Trump lawyer Michael Cohen negotiated a non-disclosure deal for him that included a $1.6 million payment to a former Playboy Model who had an affair with him in exchange for her silence.

"Mr. Cohen reached out to me after being contacted by this woman's attorney, Keith Davidson".

Trump's long-time personal attorney, walks from his hotel to his apartment in New York, New York, USA, 12 April 2018. He also wrote that it was "unfortunate that this personal matter between two consenting adults is the subject of national discussion just because of Michael Cohen's involvement".

Cohen, who also serves as a deputy finance chairman for the national party, is under criminal investigation for possible fraud and is at the center of controversy for his role in paying $130,000 days before the 2016 election to former porn star Stormy Daniels.

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.

"I acknowledge that I had a consensual relationship with a Playboy Playmate", Broidy said. "She alone decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy and I offered to help her financially during this hard period".

The agreement set up by Cohen bars the unidentified woman from discussing her relationship with Broidy. Davidson did not immediately respond to request for comment. The scandal places even more pressure and scrutiny on President Trump's lawyer and self-described fixer, Michael Cohen, following raids on his offices earlier this week by federal law enforcement officers. The unidentified woman claimed Broidy got her pregnant. Just last month, Broidy hosted a Los Angeles fundraiser for Trump. Although I had not previously hired Mr. Cohen, I retained Mr. Cohen after he informed me about his prior relationship with Mr. Davidson'.

Broidy apologized to his family in his statement.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has sued to break the agreement, arguing that it is invalid because Trump failed to sign it. Cohen and Trump are seeking to force the matter out of court and into private arbitration, where proceedings are confidential. The woman had said she was pregnant and he was the father.

In the lawsuit, she contends that Mr. Cohen played a secret role in the negotiations for that deal, which allegedly involved only herself and the tabloid media company. Both Daniels and McDougal allege they had affairs with Trump and that they were paid to be quiet about those encounters. Sources said that she, under the contract, reserved the right to pursue child support, but later told Broidy's people that she had an abortion. AMI has asked the judge to dismiss the case, arguing that the deal is protected under the First Amendment.
