TPM: The Cohen-Davidson Syndicate Again

I mentioned below that the report from The Wall Street Journal about the hush agreement negotiated by Michael Cohen for Elliott Broidy, a top Trump fundraiser, is a key, new connection between the hush money payoffs and the Russia probe proper. Broidy is tied to the murky shenanigans of George Nader, with money payoffs from the Gulf states and the Russia/Seychelles back channel. But there are some key details about this agreement itself.
...
More significant is this: The lawyer for the unnamed woman is Keith Davidson, the same lawyer who represented both Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal. Cohen did not formally represent The National Enquirer in the McDougal case but he was closely involved in the background arranging the ‘catch-and-kill’ deal.

Still more notable is the way Cohen became involved in the case. According to Broidy’s statement, “Mr. Cohen reached out to me after being contacted by this woman’s attorney, Keith Davidson. Although I had not previously hired Mr. Cohen, I retained Mr. Cohen after he informed me about his prior relationship with Mr. Davidson.”
...
In this case, the association between the two men is even more clear. It certainly seems like this was less a matter of two attorneys representing adverse clients in a dispute so much as some kind of racket they had going as a duo. In the Trump instances, clearly, Cohen’s aim was to protect Donald Trump. Davidson got money for his client and a big percentage for himself. But there appears to have been an additional understanding Davidson had with Cohen that the former would manage the situation and make sure it didn’t get out of hand, certainly make sure the story never got out. In the case of Broidy, it’s almost like Davidson chose Broidy’s lawyer for him.

1. Over one million dollars

Was it for silence or for the child's future, I haven't read any lengthy story about it yet but.

Over one million dollars.

Where did that money come from especially since roidy (lol) was/is a fundraiser for the rnc, does anyone think it came out of his pocket?.

I sure as hell don't, if these pukes had all that russkie cash flowing why would they use their own?........

4. It was for silence - she had an abortion

Broidy, in a statement to the paper, said the woman told him she had become pregnant and that she “decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy.” (The woman reportedly said that Broidy was the one who had impregnated her, but the contract they reached does not assert any conclusions about paternity, and Broidy does not appear to have commented on the matter.) Broidy says he “offered to help her financially during this difficult period,” and the woman “has told Mr. Broidy’s camp that she had an abortion,” the WSJ reports.

On this website, right below the OP on my phones screen.

Asking for a friend.

3. Ads get chosen by google, facebook etc. algorithms

If you let the admin here know about the specific ad, they can ask the company that shows the ads to not show that one on this site.

5. Thank you, I've also seen concealed carry ads

And other such things that you'd think shouldn't normally be marketed here.
