What would Cohen's Prague trip show? Conspiracy against the United States on behalf of Donald Trump
Like pieces of an intricate puzzle, key elements of the infamous Steele dossier (a series of raw intelligence reports compiled by former British MI6 agent Christopher Steele) and court filings from Special Counsel Robert Mueller have been slowly coming together to reveal a potentially extremely serious criminal conspiracy, perhaps even treason, between the Trump campaign and Russia.
The cornerstone of Trump’s longtime defense against the dossier was that Michael Cohen had never been to Prague. Shortly after Buzzfeed published the Steele dossier, Michael Cohen tweeted an image of his passport and vehemently denied he’d ever been there.

Cohen thought tweeting an image of his passport showing he didn’t have an entry or exit stamp for the Czech Republic would keep him in the clear. Of course, it was rightly mocked as a weak defense because the Czech Republic is in the Schengen Area, an area with open borders between 26 countries. In April 2018, McClatchy reported investigators had evidence Cohen entered the Czech Republic from Germany.
