It’s the fine details that matter, and my-oh-my how they did miss this one. First they get the wrong guy, claiming it was Trump’s lawyer (who has never been to Prague), then the real man isn’t even an American. This is awesome to see their lies exposed.
A glaring error has been found in a recently-released intelligence dossier that claims the Russian government has embarrassing information on President-elect Donald Trump.
The report stipulates that Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen met with Kremlin officials in Prague in August 2016.
Cohen was quick to publicly deny the accusations, tweeting a picture of his passport and writing that he has never even visited the Czech capital once in his life.
And now CNN is reporting that the Michael Cohen in the report isn’t even Trump’s lawyer -but a man with the same name from a different country.
Witnesses have also backed up Mr Cohen’s claim that he was in California at the time the report claims he was in Prague.
Two sources in the USC baseball program said Mr Cohen and his son were touring the campus that day.
At Mr Trump’s first press conference on Wednesday, he called the report ‘a disgrace’ and put most of the blame on Buzzfeed and CNN for reporting on it.
He then refused to answer a CNN reporter who tried to jump in and ask a question since the President-elect was ‘attacking’ his news organization.
‘Information that was false and fake and never happened got released to the public by Buzzfeed – which is a failing pile of garbage – writing it, I think they are going to suffer the consequences. They already age.
Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer also addressed the issue at the beginning of the conference, at times nearly yelling into his microphone as he berated the journalists in the room that reported on the document.
