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

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's longtime personal attorney, negotiated a $1.6 million settlement between a top Republican donor and a Playboy playmate after she became pregnant following an affair, the donor acknowledged on Friday.

"I acknowledge I had a consensual relationship with a Playboy Playmate", Broidy said in a statement, as cited by the WSJ.

The contract also prohibits the pursuit of what the woman said were impending legal charges against Broidy and claims that Broidy paid her for a sexual relationship that lasted one to two years, a source told the Journal.

Cohen handled the settlement to the woman for Elliot Broidy, a venture-capitalist who serves as a deputy finance chairman for the RNC, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

Broidy, a close friend of Trump's, works on the Republican National Committee with Cohen.

Cohen's alleged involvement in the matter follows accusations he made payments to women in order to protect Trump. The money was to be paid to her over two years in quarterly settlements, with the first payment due on December 1, sources told WSJ. Sources said that she, under the contract, reserved the right to pursue child support, but later told Broidy's people that she had an abortion.

Cohen and Davidson did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Daniels sued Trump on the grounds that the non-disclosure agreement she signed regarding the affair was invalid.

About 100 teachers from Tulsa also continued a 110-mile walk to the capitol on Thursday after beginning the trek the day before. Those measures are expected to generate additional dollars that can be directed toward education.

In this case, Broidy was known as David Dennison and the Playboy model was described as Peggy Peterson.

"She alone decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy and I offered to help her financially during this hard period".

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. "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.

Cohen is also in the crosshairs of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who raided his office and residence on Monday and seized records and communications related to the deal with Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

Broidy allegedly helped broker meetings between Nader and Trump, and also had a profitable business relationship with the UAE. Just last month, Broidy hosted a Los Angeles fundraiser for Trump. "Although I had not previously hired Mr. Cohen, I retained Mr. Cohen after he informed me about his prior relationship with Mr. Davidson", Broidy said. Broidy claims that Cohen learned about the matter from Davidson then contacted Broidy, who agreed to hire Cohen to negotiate a deal.

McDougal has since claimed in a lawsuit that Davidson was working with Cohen to keep her quiet.
