The deal was negotiated to prevent the former playmate from publicly discussing the alleged affair.

According to the WSJ report, the sum of $1.6 million was due to be paid to the unnamed former Playboy model in quarterly installments over a period of two years.

Broidy, a deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee and Los Angeles-based venture capitalist, admitted to having a relationship with the mystery woman.

The Times also reported that month that Broidy used his relationship with Trump as marketing fodder for his clients, offering favors like a trip to the president's Mar-A-Lago resort and tickets to V.I.P inauguration events. "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 in a statement following both reports. "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. Investigators also searched for evidence of bank fraud and more. Trump weighed in to accuse prosecutors of a "witch hunt".

In the first year of the Trump administration, Broidy was an outspoken advocate at the White House and on Capitol Hill on Middle East issues, particularly the need for action against Qatar, a rival power of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.

The matter might have remained personal, as the relations between a California businessman and a Playmate is nothing unusual in Tinseltown, but Broidy reportedly helped raise over $108 million in funding for Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and donated more than $160,000 to the RNC previous year. Daniels sued Trump on the grounds that the non-disclosure agreement she signed regarding the affair was invalid. 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.

"I tweeted the facts on this last night".

Both agreements use the pseudonyms "David Dennison" and "Peggy Peterson" to hide the identity of the signatories. The woman chose to terminate the pregnancy, Broidy said in his statement.

Broidy apologized to his family in his statement: "It is unfortunate that this personal matter between two consenting adults is the subject of national discussion just because of Michael Cohen's involvement". National Enquirer never ran McDougal's allegations and gave her a fitness column instead, prompting speculation that the payment was meant to keep her allegations from coming out in what is known in the tabloid world as a "catch and kill".
