Mueller has proof Cohen was in Prague in 2016, confirming part of dossier
Pages 18 and 19 of the Christopher Steele dossier detail a trip Michael Cohen took to Prague in August 2016 to meet with Kremlin officials, something Cohen repeatedly has denied.
But sources now tell McClatchy DC that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has proof Cohen "secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign."
Trump fixer’s secret trip reveals most damning evidence of collusion yet
The dossier, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, alleges that Cohen traveled to Prague to meet with Kremlin operatives to “clean up the mess” caused by public reports about Trump associates’ ties to Russia, which were starting to create buzz by late summer 2016.
It further alleges that Cohen, two Russians, and several Eastern European hackers met at the office of a Russian government-backed organization in Prague to discuss “how deniable cash payments were to be made to hackers in Europe who had worked under Kremlin direction against the Clinton campaign.”
The purpose of the meeting, according to the dossier, was to discuss how to “sweep it all under the carpet and make sure no connection could be fully established or proven.”
In other words, Cohen allegedly traveled to Prague in his role as a fixer — to keep something quiet that would be harmful to Trump if it got out publicly. Just like he did with Stormy Daniels. And with Karen McDougal. And with a number of other embarrassing sexual stories related to Trump ahead of the presidential election.
But this time, his job as Trump’s fixer was to pay off Kremlin-backed hackers.
Mueller was the newly appointed FBI Director in the fall of 2011 who agreed not to investigate 911. (Hint: steel-framed buildings do not collapse at freefall speeds unless all underlying supports have been destroyed) He has no conscience. Nothing to lose in this Deep State coup.
