Cohen Arranged Payment for RNC Bigwig After Affair

Cohen Arranged Payment for RNC Bigwig After Affair

According to the Wall Street Journal, Cohen helped arrange a payment for Elliott Broidy, who is a deputy finance chairman with the Republican National Committee, for $1.6 million.

In another deal, AMI paid a former doorman at one of Trump's buildings in Manhattan to keep him quiet about a rumored affair between Trump and a housekeeper who got pregnant and subsequently delivered a child. In return for $1.6 million paid over two years, she agreed not to talk about her alleged relationship with the RNC fundraiser, and agreed not to pursue what she described as legal claims, sources said. They spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Broidy acknowledged the affair in the Journal's story.

Broidy apologized to his wife and family for the affair with the Playmate, who discovered she was pregnant and chose to get an abortion.

The woman in the Broidy agreement committed to silence. "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. "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 provided to the AP.

Ferrari fined 50000 euros after mechanic suffers leg break
A disastrous pit stop for team mate Kimi Raikkonen left a Ferrari mechanic injured on the ground and forced the Finn's retirement. Asked whether his win was down to Mercedes' level dropping off or Ferrari's rising, Vettel told Autosport: "It's a hard one".


Broidy, an LA-based venture capitalist, works on the RNC's fundraising efforts with Cohen, a national deputy finance chairman.

It's the latest such agreement arranged by Cohen, Trump's longtime personal lawyer and fixer, whose home, office and hotel room were raided by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents armed with a search warrant on Monday, a move than enraged the president, who called it "an attack on our country". Trump's lawyer formerly intervened in the NY case, arguing for confidentiality.

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. We have not spoken since that time. Davidson did not immediately respond to request for comment. Steve Wynn, a casino magnate, resigned as its finance chairman earlier this year following allegations of sexual improprieties. Asked if she was considering firing Cohen from the RNC over revelations of his payouts, McDaniel told MSNBC she wanted to talk to him first before making a decision.

Broidy, an investor, already was in the sights of the special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, because of his relationship with George Nader, a businessman who serves as an adviser to the de facto ruler of the United Arab Emirates, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahya. The AP reported last month that Nader wired Broidy $2.5 million through a Canadian company to pay for a pair of Washington conferences blasting Qatar as a state sponsor of terrorism.
