Cohen Arranged Payment for RNC Bigwig After Affair

15 April, 2018, 01:06 | Author: Jason Torres
  • Michael Cohen reportedly negotiated a $1.6 million settlement on behalf of Republican fundraiser Elliot Broidy

Through a statement provided by a spokesman, Broidy said he did have a relationship and, at the end of it, the woman told him she was pregnant. The unidentified woman claimed Broidy got her pregnant. "She alone decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy and I offered to help her financially during this hard period", he added.

Michael Cohen, the lawyer under federal scrutiny for his role in paying off a woman who said she had an extramarital affair with Donald Trump, paid $1.6 million to a Playboy playmate who had an affair with a top Jewish donor to the Trump campaign.

Keith Davidson, the lawyer who represented Daniels at the time, also represented the Playboy model with whom Broidy had an affair.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Broidy has admitted that he had a relationship with the woman, who subsequently had an abortion to terminate her pregnancy. 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". Trump has denied relationships with both Daniels and McDougal.

Cohen and Davidson did not immediate respond to requests for comment. "Although I had not previously hired Mr. Cohen, I retained Mr. Cohen after he informed me about his prior relationship with Mr. Davidson". Cohen also works for the committee as a national deputy finance chairman.

A Times report late last month detailed emails between Broidy and George Nader, a Middle East adviser who is now said to be cooperating with Mueller.

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.

The company hopes that the data in the map will be used by city planners to better develop driving infrastructure in the city. GetAround is a peer-to-peer carsharing company, which means it lets auto owners rent out their vehicles to other people.

The raid is connected to the investigations of Cohen's alleged bank fraud and campaign finance legal violations connected to the Stormy Daniels hush-money payment.

Broidy, a Los Angeles-based venture capitalist, has acknowledged the relationship, which he characterizes as "consensual".

Both agreements had side letters identifying the parties by their real names, according to the report.

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 past year.

According to the WSJ report, the sum of $1.6 million was due to be paid to the unnamed former Playboy model in quarterly installments over a period of two years. She has said she understood that American Media Inc. was buying her story not to publish it, but to bury it, in what has been called a "catch and kill" arrangement.

McDougal has sued to break free of her contract so she can speak freely, arguing that her story about Trump is "core political speech entitled to the highest protection under the law".
