McClatchy is reporting that a very important detail that Michael Cohen denied in the Trump dossier has been corroborated by evidence the FBI has gathered.
The Justice Department special counsel has evidence that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
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.
It would also be 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. Undercutting Trump’s repeated pronouncements that “there is no evidence of collusion,” it also could ratchet up the stakes if the president tries, as he has intimated he might for months, to order Mueller’s firing.
Trump’s threats to fire Mueller or the deputy attorney general overseeing the investigation, Rod Rosenstein, grew louder this week when the FBI raided Cohen’s home, hotel room and office on Monday. The raid was unrelated to the Trump-Russia collusion probe, but instead focused on payments made to women who have said they had sexual relationships with Trump.
Cohen has denied it vehemently and has even said he did it under oath:
For more than a year, I have sworn under oath, appeared on tv and provided written and verbal statements to press...I have never been to #Prague and none of the allegations about me in the #RussianDossier are true. #finally #truth @RepAdamSchiff @RepSwalwell pic.twitter.com/57ox20jyrq— Michael Cohen (@MichaelCohen212) February 7, 2018
Remember this hilarity:
Now, posting a pic of the cover of his passport doesn’t prove anything, but apparently he thought it did.
So IF this is true, and they have evidence he lied, then maybe they’ll try to turn Cohen against el Trumpo…
IN any case, the investigations are heating up.
