Federal prosecutors are reportedly looking into Michael Cohen's use of a private company in Delaware to get money to women who alleged they had affairs with two of his clients.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday that Michael Cohen used Essential Consultants LLC to send money to a former Playboy model who alleged top Republican donor Elliott Broidy had impregnated her.

He used the same company to pay $130,000 to adult film star Stormy Daniels, who claims she had an affair with President Trump in 2006.

The Journal reported that Broidy made an initial payment of $62,500 to Essential Consultants LLC as part of Cohen's negotiation fee, and later paid the rest directly to Cohen.

The newspaper reported on Friday that Cohen had negotiated a $1.6 million settlement for Broidy, who served as the deputy finance chair for the Republican National Committee (RNC).

Broidy acknowledged the affair, and later resigned his post with the RNC.

The new report comes less than a week after federal agents raided Cohen's office and hotel where he's staying. Cohen is reportedly under investigation for bank fraud and campaign finance law violations.

Prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrants for the raid "in part" based on a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller's office, which prompted President Trump to launch a series of attacks on Mueller and his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
