Hey guys, you know that blanket, absolute, I-Never-Went-There denial from Michael Cohen (Comrade Stupid’s stupidest lawyer) about how he was never in Prague meeting with the Russians?
Seems that Opinions Differ!
“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.”
Now, of course no one knows what Mr. Mueller knows, and no one knows what Cohen and Mueller talked about.
“Earlier this month, Mueller advised Cohen’s sentencing judge that Cohen has provided substantial assistance in four areas, including in “core” areas of the Russia inquiry. Mueller did not elaborate.”
There’s no way that Cohen went there on his own and without informing his boss, so this cell phone ricochet is really pretty damning (if true). It’s worth remembering that Mueller has all the cellphones from the original raid and also has all the phone company records. These things all collaborate each other.
My take is that McClatchy would have to be utterly foolish to run with this story if they didn’t have it nailed down. There is no evidence that they’ve ever been foolish. As a matter of fact, they were one of the few major publications that got the Iraq War right. https://t.co/42qlyomKPf
