Trump and his former lawyer were involved in some pretty shady business, which has led to prison time for the lawyer, and an unknown future for the president of the United States. Revelations about their debauchery have overwhelmed the media for the past few months, as details of shockingly unethical and illegal behavior comes to light.
Michael Cohen and his attorney have vehemently denied allegations that Cohen met with Russians in Prague in the fall of 2016, and to this day, they hold these allegations to be false. Cell phone records, however, will be their final downfall as they show that Michael Cohen was, in fact, in Prague during this time.
Bad reporting, bad information and bad story by same reporter Peter Stone @McClatchyDC. No matter how many times or ways they write it, I have never been to Prague. I was in LA with my son. Proven! https://t.co/ra7nwjUA0X

According to Daily KOS:
“In April 2018, McClatchy reporter Peter Stone published a bombshell story saying Special Counsel Robert Mueller had obtained evidence that Michael Cohen had indeed been in Prague, something Cohen immediately took to Twitter to deny, claiming he had been with his son in Los Angeles during the time in question. Now, Peter Stone and his colleague Greg Gordon are back with a new bombshell: Michael Cohen’s cell phone briefly pinged off Prague cell towers in 2016.”
The McClatchy report mentioned above states:
“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.”
Daily KOS concludes their report with this:
“If confirmed, this is one more critical element of the dossier that is proven factual. Unfortunately, that means it is increasingly likely the most salacious part of the dossier could yet be proven true as well—that Vladimir Putin has video of Donald Trump with sex workers in a Moscow hotel room. That is the kind of blackmail that could be driving many of the most questionable decisions from the Trump administration. Either way, the truth is slowly trickling out, and this is not likely to end well for the Trump crime family.”
