Based RNC Exec Resigns Over Payoff to Playboy Playmate

A weekly recap of the top political stories from The Globe, sent right to your email.

The Wall Street Journal first reported the news of Broidy's settlement.

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's personal attorney, looks on as his attorney (not pictured) delivers a statement to reporters after meeting with Senate Intelligence Committee staff on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., September 19, 2017.

Investigators who raided Cohen's properties are said to have sought records of payments to two women who say they had an affair with Trump; materials connected to the 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape featuring Trump; recordings of Cohen's conversations with associates; attorney-client communications between Trump and Cohen; and Cohen's electronic devices and financial documents. Broidy claims that Cohen learned about the matter from Davidson then contacted Broidy, who agreed to hire Cohen to negotiate a deal.

A source familiar with the situation said Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel has accepted Broidy's resignation.

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.

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 a year ago.

Nader has been cooperating with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.

"First, I would like to sincerely apologize to my wife and family for the hurt that I have caused".

"I acknowledge I had a consensual relationship with a Playboy Playmate". The unidentified woman claimed Broidy got her 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. Broidy confirmed the existence of an affair and said he did work with Cohen.

In February, Cohen admitted having paid $130,000 to Daniels, an adult film actress who alleges that she had a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.

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.

Both agreements had side letters identifying the parties by their real names, according to the report.

McDougal has since claimed in a lawsuit that Davidson was working with Cohen to keep her quiet. She has said she understood that American Media Inc. was buying her story not to publish it, but to bury it, in what has been called a "catch and kill" arrangement.

Cohen set up the deal in late 2017, said sources familiar with the matter.
