Trump Lawyer Arranged Payoff To Playboy Playmate For Republican Fundraiser

15 April 2018

The involvement of this lawyer, who was reportedly named in the Broidy NDA as Paul Patterson, complicates an already convoluted story.

Cohen and Davidson did not respond to requests for comment.

In a statement to the Wall Street Journal, Broidy confirmed the affair and the monetary payments.

According to The Journal, the deal was negotiated late a year ago and blocks the woman from disclosing details of her relationship with Broidy. Sources said that she, under the contract, reserved the right to pursue child support, but later told Broidy's people that she had an abortion.

A top fundraiser for President Donald Trump resigned from the Republican National Committee on Friday after it was revealed that he paid $1.6 million to a Playboy Playmate with whom he had an extramarital affair. The woman, meanwhile, was represented by attorney Keith Davidson, who previously represented two women who now claim they had affairs with Trump - former Playmate Karen McDougal and porn actress Stormy Daniels. Mr. Cohen remains in his post, according.

Britain official: Russian Federation spied on Yulia Skripal's emails for 5 years
In it, Sedwill alleged Russia's GRU military intelligence service had its cyber experts break into Yulia's email in 2013. Ms Skripal, 33, was released from the hospital this week but her father remains there.

Broidy added that he retained Cohen's services to strike the deal due to Cohen's prior relationship with Keith Davidson, the unnamed woman's attorney.

Cohen has been a staple in headlines since the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided his hotel room and office in NY on Monday.

Cohen and Broidy met during the 2016 campaign, when Broidy, a California native and major GOP donor, emerged as a key financial backer of Trump. According to The Times, Broidy and Nader pushed the White House to oust Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and adopt an aggressive approach toward Iran and Qatar, as well as asked Trump to meet with the Emirati leader outside the White House.

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.

Elliott Broidy, the RNC's national deputy finance chairman, told BuzzFeed News in a statement, "First, I would like to sincerely apologize to my wife and family for the hurt that I have caused".

BJP treating Kathua, Unnao cases in religious, community perspective: Congress
Rahul Gandhi, the chief of the main opposition Congress party, led a candlelight march in Delhi on Thursday night. She said that women and children have no religion and that no politics should be done over such issues.

"I acknowledge I had a consensual relationship with a Playboy Playmate". "At the end of our relationship, this woman shared with me that she was 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 said in a statement to the Journal.

The report is the latest example of Cohen negotiating nondisclosure agreements and payments to women who allegedly had affairs with his clients.

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. McDougal said her lawyer at the time secretly negotiated with Cohen on a deal with American Media Inc, publisher of the National Enquirer, which paid her $150,000 in 2016 to keep quiet.
