Elliott Broidy has just resigned from his position as National Deputy Finance Chairman of the Republican National Committee. Broidy was accused of paying hush money to a Playboy centerfold model, Politico has just reported.
That payment was allegedly arranged by President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Cohen, like Broidy, is also a National Deputy Finance Chairman.
"President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer negotiated a deal in late 2017 to pay $1.6 million to a former Playboy model who said she was impregnated by a top Republican fundraiser, according to people familiar with the matter," The Wall Street Journal first reported Friday afternoon.
All this comes less than 24 hours after Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti took to Twitter just before midnight Thursday to announce the very details of this transaction, without naming names. Avenatti added that the "prominent GOP donor...made sure she had an abortion."
Abortion is against the GOP platform.
"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," Avenatti said via the social media platform.
