The Steele dossier, which is unverified, contained claims that Cohen, Trump’s long-time fixer, met secretly with Russian intelligence agents in Prague in 2016 to strategize about the campaign. Congressional investigators have said they’ve looked into the issue.
Cohen has denied traveling to Prague. Neither he nor his lawyer responded to McClatchy’s requests for comment.
Mueller’s team has evidence that Cohen entered the Czech Republic through Germany, which he could have done without a passport, according to McClatchy’s sources.
The report comes days after the FBI raided Cohen’s offices and hotel room. Federal prosecutors revealed Friday that Cohen has been under grand jury investigation for months related to his personal business dealings.
