President Donald Trump's personal lawyer reportedly arranged a $1.6 million deal to pay a former Playboy model to keep quiet about her alleged relationship with a major Republican fundraiser.

Los Angeles-based venture capitalist Elliott Broidy resigned Friday as deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee following revelations he paid $1.6 million to a former Playboy model he impregnated.

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. It also prevents her from pursuing "what she said were potential legal claims against Mr. Broidy, according to the person familiar with the matter".

In a statement on Friday, Broidy acknowledged that he had a relationship with a Playboy Playmate and offered to help her financially after she told him she was pregnant. "At the end of our relationship, this woman shared with me that she was pregnant".

According to The Journal, the deal was negotiated late a year ago and blocks the woman from disclosing details of her relationship with Broidy.

The FBI raided Cohen's office, home and hotel on Monday.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders deflected questions about Cohen and the Broidy payout today, saying she was "not sure" if Cohen was still Trump's personal attorney and trying to turn the focus back to critiques of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Cohen didn't respond to requests for comment from the outlet.

The source says it allows the woman to speak about and take legal action concerning her alleged pregnancy if she so chooses.

The $1.6 million sum was scheduled to be paid to the woman in installments, beginning in December 2017 and being parceled out over the course of two years, the newspaper reported.

Broidy said Cohen contacted him after being contacted by the woman's attorney, Keith Davidson.

Avenatti is suing to void a non-disclosure agreement Cohen negotiated on Trump's behalf with the porn star, who charged that she and Trump had a one-night stand in 2006 months after the president's third wife, Melania, gave birth to their son.

The woman accusing Broidy has refused to show proof of pregnancy, according to the source, who has reviewed the contract. "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.

Broidy, meanwhile, has been embroiled in controversy stemming from his work with George Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman who was confronted by agents working for Mueller in January and has since been cooperating with the Russian Federation probe.
