Embattled attorney Michael Cohen has dropped a pair of much-touted libel suits against BuzzFeed and the private investigation firm Fusion GPS over publication of the so-called dossier detailing alleged ties between President Donald Trump and Russia.

Cohen abandoned the suits late Wednesday as he continues to fight to recover documents and electronic files seized from his home, office and hotel room last week by federal authorities as part of what appears to be a broad criminal investigation into his conduct.

The investigation into President Donald Trump’s personal attorney has reportedly put some of the Republican’s allies on edge, leaving them fearful that Michael Cohen could turn on the president to avoid spending the rest of his days in prison.

Cohen, whose office, home and hotel room were raided last week by the FBI, has long served as Trump’s “fixer,” making apparent problems go away behind the scenes while Trump ran his global real estate empire and later hit the American political stage.

It’s that kind of closeness and access to potential information about Trump’s dealings that have two people close to Trump worried Cohen could flip, according to a Politico report Thursday.

Famed attorney and television pundit Alan Dershowitz said federal prosecutors were likely to threaten Cohen with serious jail time.

They need the work and don’t realize Trump is going to stiff them.

In his memos documenting conversations with President Donald Trump, former FBI Director James Comey recounts Trump's "serious reservations" about then-national security adviser Michael Flynn as well as the President's concerns about media leaks and a statement that Russian President Vladimir Putin told Trump he had the "most beautiful hookers in the world."

So, I really don't get this Giuliana thing.

I'm no legal expert, but aren't you supposed to negotiate with the prosecutor after you've been charged with something, not during the investigation when you supposedly aren't being investigated?

I'm under the impression that you can negotiate at any time if you feel you may be charged, but my expertise on the subject of the inner workings of a major legal office largely comes from episodes of Billions.

It only there were an honest broker around who could fill us in .
