    Washington Post, May 22, 2018: Get to know Elliott Broidy, the next major Trump scandal figure

    There are two twists to this story...one of influence peddling to obtain huge consulting contracts from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, in exchange for which they would use Elliot Broidy’s connections to Trump to help the Saudis and the UAE in their conflict with Qatar.

    But the other is more salacious but connected. You will recall that Michael Cohen paid former Playboy model named Shera Bechard $1.6 million to keep quiet about an affair she supposedly had with Broidy, Cohen's 3rd client. The hefty "keep quiet" payment was because Broidy supposedly impregnated Bechard and she had an abortion.

    However, it doesn't make much sense that Broidy, a rich guy himself, would use Michael Cohen to take care of this sordid affair. What seems more likely is that Bechard didn't have the affair with Bechard, but rather with Donald Trump. And the $1.6 million comes from Trump via some circuitous route to Bechard. As the WP article admits, it is unproven conjecture, but when the public story doesn't make sense, one delves into alternatives. In a sense Elliot Broidy's role is also a fixer...though indirectly to hide the true payer of the hush money.

    Oh and Shera Bechard is a dead ringer for Ivanka Trump. Could that be a factor on why Trump pursued her?

    The New York Magazine goes into more depth on this affair.

    It makes even better reading...

    Indeed interesting. Who needs fixers? Trump's shady methods of doing business and lust for having many sexual partners requires the need for someone who can create plausible deniability

    Trump: I need your services

    Fixer: Got a name?

    Trump: Very nice woman, goes by stormy.

    Fixer: I can take it from here.

    Weeks later ...

    Fixer: The business matter we talked about has been resolved.

    Trump: Great, I have another situation for you to look into by the name of Shera Bechard

    Fixer: Not a problem.

    If the speculation related to Shera Bechard is true (she got pregnant by trump), and trump knows the details behind the coverup, trump will use all his presidential powers to stop the investigation from revealing it. He would be betting that Congress will stand down no matter what he decided to do, they will not even attempt to impeach him, so from trump's perspective, why not abuse his president powers by forcing the DOJ to fire Mueller, force the destruction evidence, and continue to fire (or threaten) anyone who dares to challenge him.

    In the end trump would ultimately loose the long term fight, but it could end like facing terrorist who actually start killing hostages until the decision is made by the opposition to take out the terrorist because its obvious that the terrorist will not stop killing hostages and many others innocent people. If trump feels trapped, he will resort to abusing his power to the fullest extent possible without reservation, and that would mean a lot innocent people will pay the price before he is removed from office.

    I don't think those affairs matter in this country; the "evangelicals" still love him. I think it is much worse that he's screwing the "country" itself a million times more. But yeah our brainless congress either is also in love with him and the rest is totally in coma. The more I see the news, the more I think that this country does not care who the leaders are, or what they do. Only the news media thrives on it and make fortunes. Yes an real banana republic.

    We should all face the fact that Trump wanted to be president for personal gain, that it.
