Ronald Kessler, who published a dossier on Donald Trump’s dealings with Russia, said on Monday he’s set to release a new version of the dossier that is to include more information related to Michael Cohen, the president’s personal lawyer. Mr. Kessler disclosed the information to CNN at a Monday news conference, saying that he “just put his name on the list to let the FBI and Congress know that I’m about to have more material relating to Michael Cohen.”
“I’m going to disclose some material that had not been previously available publicly,” Mr. Kessler added. “I’m sure it will be noticed, and it will lead to a more complete picture as to Cohen’s activities and relationships.”
He declined to elaborate further. Mr. Kessler has also said that he intends to publish another book based on the information, which is expected to follow a similar narrative.
According to the now-infamous dossier, Mr. Cohen “has extensive business and financial ties to Russia, including some that had a hostile business and political stance towards the United States.” The network reported that Mr. Kessler’s latest updated dossier will make it more clear “what specifically Cohen knew” about Russian-related efforts to intervene in the 2016 U.S. presidential election on Mr. Trump’s behalf. Mr. Kessler has said that he expects a response from the FBI on Tuesday.
