A new report from McClatchy DC insiders reveals that Special Counsel Mueller has evidence that Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, did, in fact, travel to Prague, Czech Republic, prior to the 2016 election, which confirms a major allegation in the infamous Trump-Russia dossier penned by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele.
The dossier alleges that Cohen secretly traveled to Prague in summer 2016 in order to meet with Russian intelligence operatives. He provided a copy of his passport to Buzzfeed, which did not show any Czech stamps, and even tweeted about it:

Cohen’s passport showed that he had traveled to Italy on July 9th, 2016; it would have been an easy matter for him to travel through the European Union’s open borders from Italy to the Czech Republic and then back to Italy for his flight home.
This new evidence dramatically escalates the stakes of the concurrent investigations into Cohen for corruption and campaign finance violations in addition to his role in the Trump-Russia election collusion affair.
It also improves the credibility of the Steele Dossier, which alleges that the Russian government is blackmailing President Trump with video of him engaging in urine play with prostitutes while on a December 2013 trip to Moscow.
Given that the president is already considering how best to end the investigation into his activities by firing Special Counsel Mueller or his supervisor, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the new evidence couldn’t have been revealed at a more appropriate time.
