McClatchy, which reported the news, said it was unclear if researchers have evidence Cohen satisfied prominent Russian, as Steele dossier claimed
Robert Mueller has evidence that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen traveled to Prague in 2016, refuting Cohen’s claim that he never visited the Czech capital and bolstering the Christopher Steele intelligence dossier that first described the journey, McClatchy reported on Friday.
Investigators for Mueller, the special advise in the Russia probe, have evidence Cohen entered the Czech Republic through Germany in late summer 2016, McClatchy reported, quoting two unnamed sources.
The news agency said it was unclear whether Mueller’s examiners have evidence that Cohen met with a prominent Russian, as the Steele dossier claimed.
Mueller is investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. Russia has denied meddling in the election and Trump has said there was no collusion.
The special attorney and an lawyer for Cohen did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Reuters or McClatchey.
But on Saturday he tweeted to repeat his refusals that he had ever been to Prague 😛 TAGEND
The dossier by former British intelligence agent Steele alleged that Cohen met in Prague with Russians with ties to Vladimir Putin.
Agents with the FBI raided Cohen’s New York office and home the coming week, partly based on a referral from Mueller.
They were seeking information on pays made by Cohen to porn superstar Stormy Daniels, who has said she had sexuality with Trump in 2006, a person very well known the issues said.
Investigators have also looked for a possible broader pattern of scam, tax evasion, fund laundering and other crimes in Cohen’s private dealings, including his work for Trump and real estate purchased by Russian buyers, the person or persons said.
