An explosive report from McClatchy claims that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is in possession of evidence that corroborates part of the Russian dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.
The report suggests that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, visited Prague during the 2016 presidential election. The evidence was gathered after Cohen tweeted a photo of his passport while claiming he never visited the area.

The report suggests that Michael Cohen first entered Germany in August or early September 2016 and then traveled to Prague, a route that would not require the lawyer to have his passport stamped.
The dossier claims that Cohen met with a powerful ally of Russian president Vladimir Putin while he was visiting Prague. It’s not clear at this time if Mueller is in possession of further confirmation of what occurred during that meeting.
The Hill claims that the dossier says Cohen was involved in a “cover up and damage limitation operation in the attempt to prevent the full details of Trump’s relationship with Russia being exposed.”
Michael Cohen has been under investigation for months, apparently in regards to various business dealings that were outside of the FBI’s own investigation.
Could Cohen have traveled to Prague in an attempt to cover up the Trump “pee scandal” which Trump has vehemently denied ever occurred? More details are likely to surface as Mueller closes in on the 45th POTUS.
