The deal was negotiated by the same players involved in a October 2016 $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels, an ex-porn star who claims to have had a one-night stand with Trump in 2006.
Sources familiar with the situation said RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel had accepted Broidy's resignation from the finance committee.
"She alone decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy and I offered to help her financially during this hard period", Broidy said. The payment bars the woman, who is based in Los Angeles, from speaking about her relationship with Broidy. "She alone decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy and I offered to help her financially during this hard period".
Broidy is identified as David Dennison, and the unidentified woman is Peggy Peterson.
The FBI raided Cohen's office, hotel room and home earlier this week.
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.
Broidy confirmed the relationship but stated that it was the woman's decision to terminate the pregnancy. Broidy said Cohen reached out to him after being contacted by Keith Davidson, the woman's attorney. "Although I had not previously hired Mr. Cohen, I retained Mr. Cohen after he informed me about his prior relationship with Mr. Davidson", who initially represented Daniels.
The WSJ's sources say that the former Playboy model is set to be paid $1.6 million over a two-year period, and that the first payment was supposed to have been made this past December.
Broidy, an investor, already was in the sights of the special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, because of his relationship with George Nader, a businessman who serves as an adviser to the de facto ruler of the United Arab Emirates, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahya.
Broidy has blamed the government of Qatar and lobbyists working for Qatar for the hacking and leaking of his emails, but a federal judge in California wrote last week that he was unsure if Broidy could successfully sue the Middle East nation.
