- Michael Cohen’s lawyer dropped a bombshell on Wednesday, saying that Cohen has not been to Prague
- The Steele dossier alleges that Cohen traveled to Prague during the campaign to collude with Russians
- But Cohen lawyer Lanny Davis says that the dossier allegations are “false”
Lanny Davis, the Clinton-connected attorney for Michael Cohen, said Wednesday that the former Trump lawyer had never been to Prague, as the infamous Steele dossier alleges.
“Thirteen references to Mr. Cohen are false in the dossier, but he has never been to Prague in his life,” Davis said Wednesday in an interview on Bloomberg.
The statement is a significant denial given that, according to Davis, Cohen has turned over a new leaf by deciding to discuss his work on behalf of President Donald Trump.
Cohen pleaded guilty on Tuesday to tax evasion, bank fraud and campaign finance violations. He claimed that he acted at the direction of Trump by paying off two women who claimed they had affairs with the former real estate mogul in 2006.
