Special counsel Robert Mueller found that the two most dramatic claims in British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s now-infamous dossier likely lacked substance: that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen met with Putin operatives in Prague in the summer of 2016 and that the Russians obtained compromising material on Trump.
Mueller’s report confirmed that Cohen “had never traveled to Prague,” and referred to the existence of compromising tapes of Trump as an “unverified allegation.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Because Steele’s dossier was used in applications for surveillance under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who is inspecting FISA abuse, is reportedly focusing on Steele. Steele has declined to cooperate with the probe.
In his dossier, Steele claimed that a “Kremlin insider” provided him with a dramatic tale of Cohen’s meetings in Prague with Putin-linked operatives and foreign hackers. Cohen consistently denied the claims, Mueller noted.
Specifically, the Steele source claimed that Cohen may have met in Prague with Russian officials at a Russian-owned office, that the meeting was facilitated and may have been attended by “leading pro-Putin Duma figure” Konstantin Kosachev, and that Cohen discussed contingency plans with Kremlin representatives for covering up their tracks if Hillary Clinton won the election.
Mueller concluded that the meetings never happened.
