Cohen's Cell Signal Traced To Prague, Possibly Verifying Key Steele Dossier Claim

Cohen's Cell Signal Traced To Prague, Possibly Verifying Key Steele Dossier Claim

Cell tower evidence places Michael Cohen near Prague in late summer of 2016, according to an explosive report that McClatchy published Thursday, suggesting the accusations may be true that Cohen went overseas to collaborate with Russian officials on swaying the United States' presidential election.

The cell phone signal intelligence has reportedly been shared with special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

Cohen's tweet came after McClatchy reported that foreign intelligence agencies had identified a mobile phone linked to Cohen pinging cell towers around Prague sometime between August and September 2016.

The dossier claimed that Cohen travelled to Prague in late summer 2016 in part to try to contain negative news stories linking Trump to Russian Federation, and to make sure that European hackers had gotten paid.

Of course the Trump people have vigorously denied the legitimacy of the dossier, and Cohen's legal team and spokespeople have denied he ever visited Prague.

Trump misleads about military pay raises
Trump said that after US troops in Syria return home, Iraq could still be used to stage attacks on IS militants. It's reported Trump also wants to reduce the number of USA troops in Afghanistan from 14,000 to 7,000.

Although President Donald Trump has referred to the dossier as a "pile of garbage", much of it has been authenticated by news and intelligence services.

"I hear #Prague #CzechRepublic is handsome in the summertime", Cohen tweeted. I wouldn't know as I have never been.

"The new information regarding the recovery of Cohen's cell phone location doesn't explain why he was apparently there or who he was meeting with, if anyone". But it adds to evidence that Cohen was in or near Prague around the time of the supposed meeting.

Cohen has been cooperating for the past several months with the Special Counsel's office but details of his cooperation with the Mueller probe have not been publicly revealed.

"The brief activation from Cohen's phone near Prague sent beacons that left a traceable electronic signature", it said. As part of a plea deal struck with prosecutors in New York, Cohen said that Trump instructed him to make a hush payment in October 2016 to Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006.
