Trump lawyer arranged payoff to Playboy Playmate for Republican fundraiser

He paid for the woman's abortion and then tossed in an extra $1.599 million because he wanted to "help her financially during this hard period".

Broidy, who is married with three children, admitted the affair in a statement in which he apologized to his wife and family "for the hurt that I have caused".

The woman's lawyer, Keith Davidson, also represents porn actress Stephanie Clifford - otherwise known as "Stormy Daniels" - and another former Playboy model, Karen McDougal, who sold the rights to her story about an alleged affair she had with Trump.

Broidy, a member of the Republican Jewish Coalition board, was an early backer of Trump among GOP Jews, who generally back establishment figures in the party and were wary of Trump's insurgency. Mr. Cohen remains in his post, according.

The week has gone from bad to worse for US President Donald Trump's embattled lawyer Michael Cohen after damning reports of yet another high-profile "hush money" sex scandal within the RNC emerged Friday.

While being with Downey is a "gift", Cumberbatch added that one has to constantly be on one's toes because he is so good. Vulture has dared to posit the fate of 33 characters in the movie, which drops on April 27.

Since Trump's inauguration, Broidy has been a regular visitor to the White House and Mar-a-Lago, Trump's "Summer White House", which he visits regularly to play golf and hobnob with his well-heeled pals.

A top fundraiser for President Donald Trump resigned from the Republican National Committee today after it was revealed that he paid $1.6 million to a Playboy Playmate with whom he had an extramarital affair.

It's the latest such agreement arranged by Cohen, Trump's longtime personal lawyer and fixer, whose home, office and hotel room were raided by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents armed with a search warrant on Monday, a move than enraged the president, who called it "an attack on our country".

Broidy confirmed the relationship but stated that it was the woman's decision to terminate the pregnancy.

Sources familiar with the situation said RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel had accepted Broidy's resignation from the finance committee.

On Saturday, Syrian doctors and rescue workers in Douma said that at least 40 people were killed in the apparent chemical attack . The airfield, known as T-4, was attacked in the past by Israeli Air Force jets after an Iranian drone violated Israeli airspace.

Broidy agreed to pay the $1.6 million over two years, and completed the first installment in December, the person said.

Broidy was a deputy finance chairman for the RNC until today. "Although I had not previously hired Mr. Cohen, I retained Mr. Cohen after he informed me about his prior relationship with Mr. Davidson".

The settlement prohibited the unidentified Playboy model from disclosing her relationship with Broidy. Davidson did not immediately respond to request for comment.

The payment was first revealed by Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for Daniels. The FBI raids also sought information that included payments allegedly made to keep women silent about affairs with Trump more than a decade ago.

The source says it allows the woman to speak about and take legal action concerning her alleged pregnancy if she so chooses.
