Cohen negotiated the deal, worth $1.6 million, on behalf of Elliott Broidy, a California-based venture capitalist, close ally of President Trump, and the deputy finance chair of the Republican National Committee.

Keith Davidson, the former attorney for Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, represented the woman, making it the second known "hush money" deal Davidson brokered with Cohen.

Broidy, like Cohen, is a top official at the Republican National Committee. Broidy confirmed the existence of an affair and said he did work with Cohen.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has sued to break the agreement, arguing that it is invalid because Trump failed to sign it. Cohen and Trump are seeking to force the matter out of court and into private arbitration, where proceedings are confidential.
