RNC Deputy Finance Chairman resigns over pay-off to Playboy model

Published

on

Friday afternoon, RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel accepted the resignation tendered by Elliott Broidy, a deputy finance chairman. Broidy, a venture capitalist living in Los Angeles, is a major Republican fundraiser and a big Trump supporter.  He was RNC finance chairman from 2005-2008. Broidy had an affair with a Playboy model who became pregnant. A financial settlement of $1.6M has now become public knowledge.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel said Friday afternoon that she had accepted Broidy’s resignation.

“Obviously, these developments are new to me,” she told CNN. “I have not heard of any of this. Elliott and I spoke earlier today and he tendered his resignation. He doesn’t want to be a distraction.”

McDaniel said she was going to “take a look” at the situation facing Cohen, who continues to hold a top fundraising position at the RNC. “I haven’t had a chance to do my due diligence,” McDaniel said, adding that she hoped to talk with Cohen in the near future.

This is quite a story. Guess which attorney arranged the settlement with the model? The attorney is another RNC fundraiser – Donald Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen. Yikes. What a small world. Not really. This model was clever enough to have her personal attorney contact Cohen for the settlement when her relationship with Broidy ended. By then she was pregnant. Hey, guess who the model’s attorney is? His name is Keith Davidson and at that time he also had a client by the name of Stormy Daniels. Oh, ok. (Washington Post)

“Mr. Cohen reached out to me after being contacted by this woman’s attorney, Keith Davidson,” Broidy said in his statement. “Although I had not previously hired Mr. Cohen, I retained Mr. Cohen after he informed me about his prior relationship with Mr. Davidson.”

It’s all so cozy, isn’t it? You probably remember that Cohen claims he paid off Stormy Daniels $130,000 to stay quiet about her one night stand with then-candidate Trump. The Playboy model’s deal came in late 2017. The Stormy Daniels deal was in October 2016. In the Washington Post article, Davidson is described as a celebrity lawyer.

Broidy readily admits he had the affair and that he agreed to pay the woman over a two year period, submit to a paternity test and pay child support if she decided to keep the baby. The relationship is described as consensual. (You may also remember that the last RNC money man to resign was accused of sexual harassment which isn’t consensual.) The model’s name has not been revealed. Yet.

The woman decided to not keep the baby. Broidy issued this statement about that.

“I acknowledge I had a consensual relationship with a Playboy Playmate,” Broidy said in a statement to the Journal. “At the end of our relationship, this woman shared with me that she was pregnant. She alone decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy and I offered to help her financially during this difficult period.”

As I said, Broidy is a big donor and fundraiser for Republicans. He’s also on the board of the Republican Jewish Coalition. (Washington Post)

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.

Broidy worked with George Nader, a Lebanese American businessman and power broker in the region who has been working in recent years as an adviser for the UAE, according to people familiar with their relationship.

Nader is a witness in Mueller’s investigation.

But wait, there’s more. One last twist. A man identified as one of the model’s current attorneys, Peter K. Stris, is also an attorney for another Playboy playmate that has recently been in the news with alleged involvement in Trump world. Karen McDougal was also represented by Keith Davidson. She sold her story to the National Enquirer for $150,000 in August 2016. At that point, the story was supposed to be killed. Of course, now Trump is president and she wants out of the agreement, so she can speak freely. That means she realized she sold out too cheaply. Hey, guess who her attorney now is? Yep. Peter Stris. My, my, my.

It’s all so cozy. I sure hope Chairwoman McDaniels finds the time to do that due diligence she needs to finish.

Obama’s Former Director of National Intelligence Says Obama Behind Entire Russia Witch Hunt!

Guest post by Joe Hoft

President Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, came clean on CNN and stated that former President Obama was behind spying on President Trump!

James Clapper was on CNN yesterday and he stated that Obama was behind spying on President Trump and all the corrupt and criminal actions involving the government, including the Mueller investigation –

According to Obama’s former spy chief, James Clapper, who appeared on CNN to say it was Obama who set the entire Russia witch-hunt into motion by tasking the intelligence community assessment.

Clapper said –

If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.  President Obama is responsible for that.  It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.

The cat is out of the bag.

Sunday morning talking heads

Published

on

By

It’s a special day on the Sunday shows when socialism’s new superstar drops by to show off her intellectual chops.

She’ll be on “Face the Nation” along with her idol, Bernie Sanders, as they campaign together in Kansas for a progressive Democrat running for Mike Pompeo’s old House seat. Why they’re wasting their time there, I have no idea: It’s a R+15 district. Presumably the idea is to draw big crowds so that other socialist candidates across the country can point to it and say, “See? Even in the heartland they want hard-leftism.”

Otherwise it’s likely to be wall-to-wall chatter about Trump and Putin today. Adam Schiff will be the lead guest on “This Week,” where he’ll say Adam-Schiff-type things about collusion and kompromat. The top-billed Republican, meanwhile, is Marco Rubio, who took some heat this week after claiming that he was satisfied with POTUS’s “I said ‘would’ when I meant to say ‘wouldn’t’” walkback of the Putin press conference. He’ll sit down with “Face the Nation” and “State of the Union” for some “Are you serious?” questions and will also likely be pressed on Trump’s commitment to NATO. Rubio’s a hawk of almost McCain-ian proportions, but unlike McCain he has a long career ahead of him potentially and therefore needs to stay on Trump’s good side. He’ll do his best this morning to be diplomatic with his criticism of the president’s NATO skepticism.

If you can stand it, John Kerry will also be on “Face the Nation” to condemn Trump for not showing as much strength towards an enemy as Kerry himself did with, er, Iran. The full line-up is at the AP.

DEVELOPING: DOJ Releasing Docs Related to FISA Warrants on Carter Page

Published

on

By

On Friday, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced documents related to the FISA warrants on Trump’s former campaign advisor, Carter Page were released by the FBI — and were on the way to JW headquarters.

Almost one year ago to the day, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit against the DOJ for the following documents:

Copies of all proposed and all final signed FISA applications submitted to the FISC relating to Russian interference in the 2016 election, allegations of collusion between people associated with the Trump campaign and Russia, and any known Trump associates regardless of context;

Copies of all FISC responses to the above-mentioned applications in which the Court notified the FBI or Justice Department that it would not grant the proposed applications or recommended changes. If any such FISC responses were provided orally, rather than in writing, please provide copies of FBI or Justice Department records memorializing or otherwise referencing the relevant FISC responses;

Copies of all FISC orders relating to the above mentioned applications, whether denying the applications and certifications, denying the orders, modifying the orders, granting the orders, or other types of orders.

Obama’s Deep State FBI and DOJ obtained a FISA warrant on Carter Page in October of 2016 and three subsequent renewals in order to spy on Trump’s campaign and transition team.

Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe and Sally Yates all signed the FISA applications even though Hillary’s fraudulent Russia dossier was used as a pretext to obtain the warrants.

“Judicial Watch may finally get the infamous spy warrants the Obama administration and Deep State used while conspiring with the Clinton campaign to target then-candidate and now President Trump. It took a year, but the stonewall and cover-up, we hope, begins to end today,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said.


Tom Fitton updated and said the docs were Fed Ex’ed.

Fitton appeared on Fox News early Saturday morning to discuss the new development.

Tom Fitton expects the documents to have redactions, however he said on Fox News, “I suspect we’ll get more answers. We won’t get all the answers we want, so the fight will continue.”

VIDEO:

The new FISA warrant documents have not been released at the time of this publication, however; The Gateway Pundit will update as soon as the documents are available.

Update: Tom Fitton says he expects to receive the corrupt FISA docs by Monday.
