Cohen sued after BuzzFeed published the dossiercompiled for Fusion by Christopher Steele, a former British spy, which alleged Cohen met Russian operatives in the Czech Republic in August 2016 as part of an effort by the Kremlin to assist Trump's campaign.
While the Trump campaign is paying for Cohen's legal costs relating to FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe, paying the law firm representing him over $214,000 in the last three months of 2017, it was not paying his costs related to the libel suit.
Cohen insists that he paid Daniels $130,000 of his own money to stop her from speaking about a one-night stand she claims to have had with Trump, who denies the affair.
David Schwartz, a lawyer for Cohen, maintains that the Trump attorney's lawsuits still have merit and that he was defamed by publication of the dossier.
"The lawsuits against BuzzFeed over the Steele dossier have never been about the merits of our decision to publish it".
Cohen's office was raided last week by federal law enforcement officials, who took documents related to both Cohen and Trump as part of a criminal investigation.
Politico first reported the decision to drop the suits, which Cohen filed earlier this year. "Its interest to the public is, and always has been, obvious", BuzzFeed spokesman Matt Mittenthal wrote in a statement following Cohen's dismissal of the case.
Steele also provided the dossier to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is working with Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Attorney Jay Goldberg says he warned Mr. Trump in a phone call this weekend that Cohen's legal problems could be a liability for the president.
"I am pleased to have reached a settlement with AMI on my own terms, which restores to me the rights to my life story and frees me from this contract that I was misled into signing almost two years ago", McDougal said in a statement. "This has never been about her wanting to make this a crusade".
With court battles on several fronts, Cohen is under intense legal pressure. The search and seizure warrant documents included material that mentions Mr. Trump by name, and the "Access Hollywood" tape from 2005 that was released days ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
He said he told the panels that he never engaged with, was paid by or communicated with anyone representing the Russian government, or anyone else, about hacking or interfering with the US election, hacking the Democratic Party or creating fake news stories to assist the Trump campaign or to damage the Hillary Clinton campaign.
