McClatchy DC is reporting, and a good many mainstream media are gleefully passing McClatchy’s report along, that President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, was in Prague during August, 2016, facilitating collusion between the Trump people and Russia.
Here is how the article, written by Peter Stone and Greg Gordon, begins starts:
The Justice Department special counsel has evidence that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
Confirmation of the trip would lend credence to a retired British spy’s report that Cohen strategized there with a powerful Kremlin figure about Russian meddling in the U.S. election.
It would also be one of the most significant developments thus far in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of whether the Trump campaign and the Kremlin worked together to help Trump win the White House.
Michael Cohen vociferously denies this trip ever took place. Mr. Cohen claims that, not only has he never been in Prague in his life, he was in Los Angeles visiting his son at the time of the alleged meetings.
This should be easy to prove one way or another.
If Mr. Cohen was in Los Angeles, he should be able to produce receipts – such as a hotel bill, restaurants, plane tickets, etc. Showing a passport without a “Prague” stamp isn’t enough, becauuse, as anyone who has been through Europe knows, sometimes passports are stamped, sometimes they aren’t.
Similarly, if McClatchy DC has evidence – I don’t mean a couple of unnamed sources making claims, but evidence similar to what I asked of Mr. Cohen in the previous paragraph, let’s see it.
There should be no problem at all with the truthful side having proof to show us
