Trump fundraiser quits RNC over Playboy Playmate payout
Apr 14, 2018, 12:05
Under the arrangement, Republican National Committee deputy finance chair Elliot Broidy, who was appointed by Trump, agreed to pay $1.6 million to a woman who claimed she was impregnated by him during a sexual affair, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's longtime personal attorney, negotiated a $1.6 million settlement between a top Republican donor and a Playboy playmate after she became pregnant following an affair, the donor acknowledged on Friday.
Cohen and Trump are now being sued by porn star Stormy Daniels, who seeks to void her own hush deal over an alleged dalliance with Trump for which she was paid $130,000.
The lawyer representing the woman who Broidy allegedly had the sexual relationship with also negotiated a $150,000 payment to another former Playboy model, Karen McDougal, for the rights to her story of an alleged affair with Donald Trump.
'I acknowledge I had a consensual relationship with a Playboy Playmate, ' Mr. Broidy said in a statement to the paper. "She alone decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy and I offered to help her financially during this hard period", Brody wrote.
The Broidy agreement uses the same pseudonyms for Broidy and the woman he was sleeping with - David Dennison and Peggy Peterson -as an earlier agreement involving Trump and porn queen Stormy Daniels, the WSJ said.
Cohen's offices were raided on Monday by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who is reportedly investigating possible bank fraud committed by Cohen as well as violations of election law.
In the wake of the revelation of the deal Friday afternoon, Broidy stepped down from his post as RNC deputy national finance chairman, according to two people familiar with the situation who, like others, spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Broidy later served as vice chairman for one of President Trump's primary fundraising arms during the 2016 election and had the same position for the president's inaugural committee.
He filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles federal court last month, accusing the Gulf nation of Qatar of stealing and leaking emails to reporters in retribution for Broidy's attempts to influence the Trump administration in favour of regional rivals of Qatar.
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". Daniels at the time of the payment was being represented by Keith Davidson, the same attorney who represented the woman in the Broidy negotiations, according to the Journal. Broidy said he retained Cohen because Cohen had a prior relationship with Davidson.
Mr. Broidy was a major fund-raiser for George W. Bush, but he is particularly connected in Mr. Trump's orbit. Cohen has said Trump did not instruct him to make the payment. Trump has denied relationships with both Daniels and McDougal.
