‘PR Executive 1’ in Durham indictment is DC-based communications executive Charles Dolan, lawyer says

A lawyer on Thursday confirmed that Washington-based communications executive Charles Dolan Jr. is the individual referred to as “PR Executive-1” in special counsel John Durham’s indictment against Russia analyst Igor Danchenko, which was unsealed earlier this week.

The grand jury indictment of Dachenko alleges that he lied when he informed the FBI that he never spoke with a public relations executive who had been active in the Democratic Party about claims in a dossier issued by former UK spy Christopher Steele.

Although the public relations executive, or “PR Executive-1,” is never named in the indictment, Dolan’s lawyer Ralph Martin told The Epoch Times on Friday that his client is the person in question. 

“Chuck understands and appreciates your interest,” Martin told The Epoch Times, confirming reports on Thursday about Dolan’s identity. “I can confirm that he is ‘PR Executive-1’ in the indictment. As he is a witness in an ongoing case, it would not be appropriate for Chuck to comment further on the allegations in the indictment at this time,” he added.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Dolan is the senior vice president of Kglobal, although the company appeared to remove his biography in recent days, instead returning a “404” error page.
