- Investigators have reportedly learned that a cell phone traced to Michael Cohen sent cell signals in Prague in late summer 2016.
- The revelation raises fresh questions about a key allegation about Cohen in the Steele dossier.
- The document said Cohen and Kremlin representatives held “clandestine meeting/s” in Prague in August 2016 to discuss how to limit the discovery of the close “liaison” between the Trump campaign and Russia.
- Previous media reports have indicated that investigators have additional evidence corroborating the dossier’s claim.
- Cohen, who is cooperating with Mueller, denied the dossier’s allegation on Thursday.
