The former Prosecutor of U.S. President Donald Trump , Michael Cohen, has rejected a media report that he traveled during the US election campaign in 2016 for a Meeting with Russian representatives to Prague. "I have heard, Prague, Czech Republic, in the summer, beautiful."
This wrote Cohen on Thursday in the short message service Twitter. "I don't know, because I was never there." With a view to Russia-special investigator Robert Mueller he added: "Mueller knows everything!"
I hear #Prague #Czech Republic is beautiful in the summertime. I wouldn't know as I have never been. #Mueller knows everything!— Michael Cohen (@MichaelCohen212) 27. December 2018,
Earlier, it was reported by the US media group McClatchy, Cohen ascribed the mobile phone was logged in the late summer of 2016 in radio masts in the vicinity of Prague. In the same period Eastern Europe have recorded the secret service, a conversation between Russians, in the Cohen's presence in the Czech capital city is mentioned.
McClatchy, among other things, the editor of the newspaper "Miami Herald", refers to several with the operations of trusted sources. The new information would confirm the suspicion that Cohen in Prague "secretly Russian government met with the representatives".
From a Meeting with Cohen with Russian representatives in Prague was, for the first time in the controversial Dossier of the former British spy Christopher Steele to the possible Connections between Trump and Moscow. Accordingly, both sides in the Meeting discussed can be concealed, such as contacts between trump's campaign team, and Russia.
Trump has repeatedly denied any cooperation with Russia during the presidential election in 2016. The investigation by special investigator Mueller to this question has sentenced the President repeatedly as a "witch-hunt". Cohen, who has long been regarded as Trumps sweeper, has worked with Mueller. The lawyer was sentenced in mid-December, among other things, for breaches of laws on campaign financing, tax fraud and knowingly false statements to the US Congress to a three-year prison sentence.
