One of the biggest allegations against President Donald Trump’s campaign by Robert Mueller’s supporters is that his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, met with Russian agents in Prague during the 2016 campaign. Cohen was allegedly traveling to payoff the email hackers who stole top Democrat emails which implicated Hillary Clinton in numerous misdeeds.
It was all outlined in the controversial dossier provided by foreign spy Christopher Steele — the same document used by Mueller’s team as justification for the FBI’s wiretap of the Trump’s team.

But top CIA insiders say the allegation of the trip is completely false, according to the top national security reporter at The Washington Post.
That means former President Barack Obama’s administration may have used false information as an excuse to spy on his political rivals — and they knew it.
Considering the dossier was funded by the Clinton presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee, critics say the CIA reveal calls into question the entire legitimacy of Mueller’s probe. Again.
“We’ve talked to sources at the FBI and the CIA and elsewhere — they don’t believe that [meeting] ever happened,” The Post’s Greg Miller said at an event in October that aired Saturday on CSPAN.
In the two years since the Steele dossier was made public, not a single one of the Russian collusion allegations in the document has been proven by investigators.
“Cohen last denied the dossier’s allegations in late June, a period of time when he was gearing up to cooperate with prosecutors against President Donald Trump,” The Daily Caller reported. “Cohen served as a cooperating witness for prosecutors in both New York and the special counsel’s office.”
Critics have said this is proof that the use of the Steele dossier by the Obama administration to wiretap Trump’s campaign was an illegal violation.
In fact, according to former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell, Mueller’s team may have actually destroyed evidence that hurt their Trump investigation.
The Washington Post did investigated the dossier’s authenticity, Miller said. They desperately wanted to find evidence of the most scandalous accusations like the infamous Moscow prostitute trip or the Prague meeting… but they’ve still reportedly found nothing.
“We sent reporters through every hotel in Prague, through all over the place, just to try to figure out if he was ever there… and came away empty,” Miller told CSPAN.
