New documents detail alleged abuse by former RNC official

Newly unsealed court documents detail allegations of abuse by former deputy Republican National Committee Finance Chairman Elliott Broidy of his ex-mistress, CNN reports, who says Broidy "admired" President Trump's "uncanny ability to sexually abuse women and get away with it."

The details: The documents also allege that Broidy pressured her into getting an abortion. He said in a statement that the allegations are "false and defamatory." Per CNN, Michael Cohen assisted Broidy in putting together the $1.6 million confidentiality agreement previously signed by both parties. The case also involves Michael Avenatti, Stormy Daniels' lawyer, who is being sued by Broidy's mistress for "allegedly leaking information about her relationship with Broidy."
