A top Republican fundraiser with ties to President Trump resigned Friday from the leadership of the Republican National Committee after news emerged that Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen helped arrange a $1.6 million payment to a Playboy model who said she was impregnated by the donor.

Through a statement provided by a spokesman, Broidy said he did have a relationship and, at the end of it, the woman told him she was pregnant. The unidentified woman claimed Broidy got her 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", Brody wrote.

"Federal investigators are reportedly sifting through Cohen's records seized in the raids to check for evidence of bank fraud, but they have also stumbled upon a veritable treasure trove of 'thousands of privileged communications", according to Cohen's lawyer, Todd Harrison.

Broidy, a former member of the commission that oversees the Los Angeles city Fire and Police Pension Fund, said it was "unfortunate" that his affair - which occurred "between two consenting adults" has become the "subject of a national discussion just because of Michael Cohen's involvement". Broidy is identified as David Dennison, and the unidentified woman is Peggy Peterson.

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

Broidy urged Trump to fire Rex Tillerson, then the secretary of state, whom the United Arab Emirates (UAE) believed was insufficiently tough on its rival Qatar. Cohen and Trump are now being sued by porn star Stormy Daniels, who seeks to void her own hush deal over an alleged dalliance with Trump for which she was paid $130,000. "We have not spoken since that time". Cohen is in a legal dispute over a hush agreement Daniels signed before the 2016 campaign to keep quiet about the alleged affair.

The Broidy revelations underscore ties between Cohen and Keith Davidson, a Los Angeles attorney who represented the woman with whom Broidy had the affair. The agents also sought documents regarding another woman who allegedly had an affair with Trump, Karen McDougal, who received $150,000 from the parent company of The National Enquirer. She has said she understood that American Media Inc. was buying her story not to publish it, but to bury it, in what has been called a "catch and kill" arrangement. It also prevents her from pursuing "what she said were potential legal claims against Mr. Broidy, according to the person familiar with the matter". AMI has asked the judge to dismiss the case, arguing that the deal is protected under the First Amendment.
