Elliott Broidy Quits RNC Post After Report on Payment to Ex-Model

Michael Cohen, personal lawyer for then-President-elect Donald Trump, walks through the lobby at Trump Tower, January 12, 2017 in New York City.

"I acknowledge I had a consensual relationship with a Playboy Playmate", Broidy told the Wall Street Journal.

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

"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 in a statement to the Journal.

Broidy, a close friend of Trump's, works on the Republican National Committee with Cohen. The committee has not returned Wynn's donations. McDaniel sidestepped a question about Cohen's status with the RNC during an appearance Friday on CNN. "I haven't had a chance to do my due diligence".

The raid is connected to the investigations of Cohen's alleged bank fraud and campaign finance legal violations connected to the Stormy Daniels hush-money payment. Cohen has said Trump did not instruct him to make the payment. He has met with Trump frequently at Mar-a-Lago and at the White House. Daniels sued Trump on the grounds that the non-disclosure agreement she signed regarding the affair was invalid.

The contract with Daniels closely resembles the one Cohen set up with Broidy.

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

It's not clear what role, if any, Cohen had in that transaction. Ted Cruz's presidential bid, eventually became vice chair of the Republican Party and Trump's 2016 joint fundraising committee, helping raise more than $108 million.

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson welcomed the findings, and said Russian Federation have some questions to answer. She revealed she has rejected assistance from the Russian embassy. "So far, we doubt it much", the embassy said .

Former RNC finance chair Steve Wynn resigned earlier this year after report on accusations of sexual misconduct going back years involving Wynn and women who provided massages at the Las Vegas hotel he owns.

Broidy's name has also come up in recent reports about the Russian Federation investigation.

In the wake of the revelation of the deal Friday afternoon, Broidy stepped down from his post as RNC deputy national finance chairman, according to two people familiar with the situation who, like others, spoke on the condition of anonymity.

On Friday he claimed he had been the first to report the story. Just last month, Broidy hosted a Los Angeles fundraiser for Trump. He's also a member of the board of directors of the Republican Jewish Coalition.

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.

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

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

In a statement, Broidy admitted to the relationship but did not address whether he impregnated the woman.
