Trump's lawyer bought pregnant Playmate's silence

Trump's lawyer bought pregnant Playmate's silence

"I acknowledge I had a consensual relationship with a Playboy Playmate", Broidy said in a statement, as cited by the WSJ.

In his statement, Broidy said it was "unfortunate that this personal matter between two consenting adults is the subject of national discussion just because of Michael Cohen's involvement".

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.

Cohen and Davidson did not respond to requests for comment.

Mr Cohen has been under criminal investigation for months, federal prosecutors disclosed in a filing in Manhattan federal court in Friday.

The last one, hosted by the United Arab Emirates late previous year , drew an average of just 16,500 spectators to its games. The team collected seven points in the FIFA World Cup qualifying round in 2017 and did not manage to qualify for finals.

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel accepted the resignation of Broidy as the deputy finance chairman of the RNC, a source familiar with the call told CNN, shortly after The Wall Street Journal first reported the payment. Cohen received $250,000-about 15 percent of the value of the woman's payment-for his role arranging the deal for Broidy, CNBC reported Friday.

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". After the woman became pregnant, she retained Keith Davidson, a lawyer who also represented Stormy Daniels when she agreed to accept the hush payment from Cohen. Although I had not previously hired Mr. Cohen, I retained Mr. Cohen after he informed me about his prior relationship with Mr. Davidson'.

The bombshell report comes just days after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Cohen's office and hotel on Monday. He became Trump's inaugural committee vice chairman and had an Oval Office meeting with the president in October 2017, according to documents TheNYT obtained.

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 previous year. 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. "I'm gonna take a look", she 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", he 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". "We have not spoken since that time". Additionally, the legal papers used the same pseudonyms that referred to Trump and Daniels in their agreement, "David Dennison" for the man and "Peggy Peterson" for the woman. Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, is now suing Trump and Cohen to have the agreement tossed out.

Davidson and Cohen were also in communication about a third agreement involving former Playboy centerfold Karen McDougal. Both Daniels and McDougal allege they had affairs with Trump and that they were paid to be quiet about those encounters.
