Playmate Who Had Affair With Major GOP Fundraiser Has Never Met Trump, Sources Say

Source: Huffington Post

Shera Bechard, the Playboy Playmate who had an affair with a former Republican National Committee deputy finance chairman, Elliott Broidy, and later entered into a hush-money agreement with him, has never met or spoken to President Donald Trump, two sources familiar with the matter tell HuffPost. This news comes after weeks of speculation that Bechard had in fact had an affair with Trump and that Broidy had acted as a middleman to settle Bechard’s claim.

The sources, who are unaffiliated with the president, asked not to be named in order to speak frankly about sensitive information. When asked by HuffPost about the speculation that Broidy acted as a conduit, both sources denied the rumors and said there had been no affair — or even any contact — between Bechard and Trump.

The speculation that Broidy, a major GOP donor, might have covered up for Trump’s affair escalated in April after Michael Avenatti, the attorney for adult film actress and director Stormy Daniels, suggested in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Bechard could have had the affair with someone else (many assumed he meant Trump) and that Broidy was the fall guy.

“I think at some point we are going to find out if, in fact, the client in connection with the ($1.6 million) settlement was, in fact, Mr. Broidy. I’m going to leave it at that,” Avenatti said on the morning show.

1. If Broidy was willing to pay $1.6 million in hush money, why did he immediately confirm

he was the payor when a reporter asked him about it? And blow his own cover, on purpose?

That makes no sense.

2. Payments have stopped and she's also suing to get them going again. This smells like a cover story

to fix the broken barn door.

3. I call B.S. !!

Someone is lying!! Golly,I wonder why. Spanky hung around Hefner and the Playboy Mansion frequently- but we're supposed to believe she was shagging a doughboy like Broidy, over a famous doughboy named Donald? I also don't think Broidy would've had to pay her so much money just for knocking her up. 1.6 million was paid to keep a lid on this scandal. A nobody knocking her up wouldn't have been worth that much.

Why,oh why,do they think were as stupid as them?!

8. The big question is why Cohen was involved if the payor was Broidy and not Trump.

 

Did Trump lend his attorney to Broidy this one time?

Very odd.

18. Because Trump had done it so often, Cohen had a photostat / mimeograph machine for the documents.


Make America Great Again! Bring back ditto machines / mimeographs!

20. Then answer m first question. If the cover-up as so important to Broidy -- worth 1.6 million --

why did he admit to it to the first reporter who called him?

6. I don't think he can stop paying Shera for her lawyer's disclosure

And I don't think it was Broidy. I think it was Trump. Or *a* Trump.

9. Well! If two anonymous sources "familiar with the matter"

tell us to ignore precedent and logic and just drop the matter with no further investigation, then we must, right?
