The Robert Mueller rigged witch hunt searched far and wide for a smoking gun to prove Russian collusion.
To date, he’s come up empty.
But a bombshell report just dropped that could be bad news for Donald Trump.
One of the most explosive allegations in the Christopher Steele dossier was the claim that Michael Cohen traveled to Prague to meet with high ranking Russian officials in order to put together a scheme to rig the 2016 election.
Cohen denied the allegation, and no proof he was even in Prague has surfaced.
But now McClatchy is reporting four foreign intelligence services traced a cell phone signal belonging to Michael Cohen to Prague in late summer of 2016.
They also claim to have intercepted conversations where Russians talk about Cohen being in Prague.
A mobile phone traced to President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen briefly sent signals ricocheting off cell towers in the Prague area in late summer 2016, at the height of the presidential campaign, leaving an electronic record to support claims that Cohen met secretly there with Russian officials, four people with knowledge of the matter say.
During the same period of late August or early September, electronic eavesdropping by an Eastern European intelligence agency picked up a conversation among Russians, one of whom remarked that Cohen was in Prague, two people familiar with the incident said.
The phone and surveillance data, which have not previously been disclosed, lend new credence to a key part of a former British spy’s dossier of Kremlin intelligence describing purported coordination between Trump’s campaign and Russia’s election meddling operation.
There are a few important facts to note.
First, Cohen was never charged with lying to Congress about traveling to Prague.
He denied it under oath, and even though Mueller charged him with making false statements about a Trump business deal, he did not nail him for lying about Prague.
Second, foreign intelligence services are known to plant fake news in the press.
Ecuadorian intelligence recently used The Guardian to push a fake news story about Paul Manafort traveling to London to meet with Julian Assange.
This looks like another fake news media story about Russian collusion that collapsed under even the slightest bit of scrutiny.
