  • Based RNC Exec Resigns Over Payoff to Playboy Playmate

The deal was negotiated in late 2017 by Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's longtime lawyer who also serves on the RNC's finance committee, the Journal reported.

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. It uses the same pseudonyms for Broidy and the woman who says she was impregnated, David Dennison and Peggy Peterson, that he used for Trump and Daniels, the Journal reported. "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.

Rosenzweig, who also goes by Broidy, says she was hacked. Both Cohen and Broidy were appointed to the post of Republican National Convention chairman in April 2017.

Broidy told the newspaper he had a consensual relationship with the woman.

Broidy said Cohen reached out to him after being contacted by the woman's attorney, Keith Davidson.

In the first year of the Trump administration, Broidy was an outspoken advocate at the White House and on Capitol Hill on Middle East issues, particularly the need for action against Qatar, a rival power of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.

Broidy, who is married, is a close friend of Trump's and works on the RNC with Cohen.




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

Cohen's property was raided earlier this week by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents said to be looking into allegations of bank fraud, wire fraud, and campaign finance law violations.

The agents were seeking evidence that Cohen paid porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playmate Karen McDougal hush money after they allegedly slept with Trump more than a decade ago. "Although I had not previously hired Mr. Cohen, I retained Mr. Cohen after he informed me about his prior relationship with Mr. Davidson". Cohen didn't respond to requests for comment from the outlet.

A source familiar with the situation said Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel has accepted Broidy's resignation. The deal provided for multiple payments across many months. Both agreements had separate side letters that listed the real names of the parties, this person said.

Another source familiar with the matter told CNN on Tuesday that a focus of the raids was to seek records on the deal set up between McDougal, an ex-Playboy Playmate, and a company that reportedly paid her during the 2016 presidential campaign cycle to keep her account of an alleged relationship with Trump from publication.

Broidy, meanwhile, has been embroiled in controversy stemming from his work with George Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman who was confronted by agents working for Mueller in January and has since been cooperating with the Russian Federation probe.
