Mueller Has Evidence Cohen Was In Prague In 2016, Confirming Part Of Dossier: Report
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has obtained evidence that President Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen made a secret trip to Prague during the 2016 campaign to meet with a Russian operative an strategize “about Russian meddling in the U.S. election,” McClatchy reported Friday.
Confirmation of the trip would lend credence to a retired British spy’s report that Cohen strategized there with a powerful Kremlin figure about Russian meddling in the U.S. election, the report notes.
The dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele had alleged that Cohen met in Prague to “‘clean up the mess’ created by public disclosures of other Trump associates’ reported ties to Russia,” but Cohen has emphatically denied having ever been to the Czech Republic.
Mueller’s team reportedly traced evidence of Cohen entering the Czech Republic through Germany, which he wouldn’t have needed a passport for due to open border laws in some European countries.
The revelation is one of the most significant developments thus far in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of whether the Trump campaign and the Kremlin worked together to help Trump win the White House.
