Cohen has already pleaded guilty to charges of campaign finance fraud and lying to Congress. He was sentenced to three years in prison in late 2018.

Cohen will provide new details saying Trump was engaged in an aggressive pursuit of a major project in Russia in 2016, alleging the President's attorneys edited Cohen's 2017 testimony when he lied to Congress, downplaying the efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
