Trump's personal lawyer arranged $1.6 million payoff to Playboy Playmate

A person familiar with the agreement between Broidy and the woman, who was not identified, said Cohen used the same pseudonyms he made for Trump and Daniels.

"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.

Broidy in a statement to the Wall Street Journal confirmed the affair with the unnamed woman and that the woman informed him she had become 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 added.

The contract reads that whether or not she is "indeed pregnant as she alleges" she has all her legal rights to seek "the paternity of the alleged child", and any support, financial help, or otherwise. The agreed upon sum was to be paid over a two-year period with the first installment due on December 1, a source familiar with the deal said, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Broidy has been a prominent supporter of Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, and contributed to the then-candidate's fundraising efforts as vice chairman of the Trump Victory Fund, which combined state and national Republican committees.

Shortly after publishing the story, a Journal reporter tweeted that the RNC had accepted Broidy's resignation as deputy finance chair.

"Mr. Cohen reached out to me after being contacted by this woman's attorney, Keith Davidson", Broidy said.

Cohen and Davidson did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Cohen's brokering of the Broidy deal emerged after his office in NY was raided last week by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents reportedly seeking evidence of bank fraud and other crimes. Cohen is a national deputy finance chairman for the RNC.

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. Clifford received a $130,000 payment to keep quiet about an alleged affair she also had with the president in 2005. "It is unfortunate that this personal matter between two consenting adults is the subject of national discussion just because of Michael Cohen's involvement", he said.

Broidy, a Los Angeles-based venture capitalist, has acknowledged the relationship, which he characterizes as "consensual". Both agreements had separate side letters that listed the real names of the parties, this person said.

Broidy worked with George Nader, a Lebanese American businessman and power broker in the region who has been working directly in recent years for the United Arab Emirates, according to people familiar with their relationship.
