Michael Cohen facilitated $1.6 million agreement on behalf of GOP fundraiser

Michael Cohen US President Donald J. Trump's long-time personal attorney walks from his hotel to his apartment in New York New York USA 12 April 2018. Cohen's hotel room apartment and office were raided earlier this week by federal authorities repor

Cohen made the payment on behalf of Elliott Broidy, who is now a deputy finance chair for the Republican National Committee (RNC), the Journal reports.

In tweets on Thursday night, Avenatti said, "In last 18 mos, Mr. Cohen negotiated yet another hush NDA, this time on behalf of a prominent GOP donor who had a relationship with a LA woman, impregnated her and then made sure she had an abortion". The money will be paid to her in quarterly installments and the first installment was due on December 1, the Journal reported.

"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.

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", Brody wrote.

A Times report late last month detailed emails between Broidy and George Nader, a Middle East adviser who is now said to be cooperating with Mueller.

Cohen and Broidy worked together at the RNC, after both being appointed in April 2017 by Trump.

Broidy acknowledged the affair in the Journal's story.

Keith Davidson, the former attorney for Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, represented the woman, making it the second known "hush money" deal Davidson brokered with Cohen. Cohen arranged for that payment, a transaction Trump has denied involvement in.

The newly disclosed agreement involving Broidy is similar to the October 2016 deal in which Cohen paid adult-film actress Stormy Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her silence about an alleged 2006 affair with Trump, a source familiar with the agreement told The Wall Street Journal.

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.

Broidy, like Cohen, is a top official at the Republican National Committee.

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

Federal prosecutors are investigating Cohen for possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations in connection to his efforts to tamp down damaging stories about Trump during the 2016 campaign, according to people familiar with the case. Both agreements had separate side letters that listed the real names of the parties, this person said.

The lawyer for the Playboy model involved with Broidy said his client had no statement and clarified that she isn't McDougal.

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.
