Elliott Broidy Quits RNC Post After Report on Payment to Ex-Model

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.

"She alone decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy, and I offered to help her financially during this hard period", Broidy said in a statement following both reports.

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 week has gone from bad to worse for US President Donald Trump's embattled lawyer Michael Cohen after damning reports of yet another high-profile "hush money" sex scandal within the RNC emerged Friday.

Broidy, a close friend of Trump's, works on the Republican National Committee with Cohen. The contract stated that the woman declined to give proof she was pregnant, a source told the Journal. The money will be paid to her in quarterly installments and the first installment was due on December 1, the Journal reported.

The contract states that she had the right to seek child support payments if she chose to carry out the pregnancy, although she ultimately made a decision to have an abortion. Cohen didn't respond to requests for comment from the outlet.

Both agreements use the pseudonyms "David Dennison" and "Peggy Peterson" to hide the identity of the signatories.

"Mr. Cohen reached out to me after being contacted by this woman's attorney, Keith Davidson". The unidentified woman claimed Broidy got her pregnant.

Cohen's property was raided earlier this week by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents said to be looking into allegations of bank fraud, wire fraud, and campaign finance law violations. The Times also reported that month that Broidy used his relationship with Trump as marketing fodder for his clients, offering favors like a trip to the president's Mar-A-Lago resort and tickets to V.I.P inauguration events.

Rosenzweig, who also goes by Broidy, says she was hacked. "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.

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.

"It is unfortunate that this personal matter between two consenting adults is the subject of national discussion just because of Michael Cohen's involvement", Broidy said. "Although I had not previously hired Mr. Cohen, I retained Mr. Cohen after he informed me about his prior relationship with Mr. Davidson".

New Zealand exports about $1.1 billion worth of oil per year, less than it imports, according to The New York Times. In its announcement however, the government said it wanted to be clear no current jobs would be affected.

McDougal has since claimed in a lawsuit that Davidson was working with Cohen to keep her quiet.
