Well we’ll well… it all comes out in the wash. The Wall Street Journal just reported that Elliott Broidy would not be making any additional installment payments on the $1.6M payment owed to Shera Bechard in exchange for her silence regarding an affair.
For those who have not been keeping up with this story, there is a very plausible theory floating around that the “affair” being covered up was actually between Shera Bechard and Donald Trump (and not Elliott Broidy).
The theory claims that:
Trump had a multi-year affair with Playboy model Shera Bechard that resulted in a pregnancy and an abortion
Bechard agreed to sign an NDA and remain silent about the whole thing in exchange for $1.6M
Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, arranged for the money to be paid by Elliott Broidy, a wealthy Republican operative, who then gained close White House access which he parlayed into hundreds of millions of dollars.
Trump and Co. panicked and “leaked” the details of the NDA to the WSJ, among others, but did so in a way to create the impression that Broidy, not Trump, actually had the affair with Bechard.
With Cohen flipping, and Broidy no longer making payments… it looks like the cat will soon be let outta the bag.
