Things have been reaching peak tension in Donald Trump’s Russia investigation for quite some time, and tonight, sh*t may have just hit the fan.
A new report has been released about Trump’s long-time personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and it shows one of his massive lies blowing right up in his face. If Cohen didn’t think things could possibly get worse after his offices were raided by the FBI, he has another think coming.
Last year, Cohen denied allegations that appeared in the infamous dossier that he had gone to Prague to meet with Russian officials. To prove his “innocence,” Cohen responded in the way only someone who has worked way too long with Trump could — by posting his denial on Twitter. Denying the allegations, Cohen hilariously tweeted a photo of his passport, which drew tons of criticism and mockery:

But here’s the thing – that lie has just been called out. A new report by McClatchy stated that Robert Mueller now has evidence that Trump’s lawyer “secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign”. McClatchy wrote:
“It’s unclear whether Mueller’s investigators also have evidence that Cohen actually met with a prominent Russian – purportedly Konstantin Kosachev, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin — in the Czech capital…
But investigators have traced evidence that Cohen entered the Czech Republic through Germany, apparently during August or early September of 2016 as the ex-spy reported, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is confidential. He wouldn’t have needed a passport for such a trip, because both countries are in the so-called Schengen Area in which 26 nations operate with open borders. The disclosure still left a puzzle: The sources did not say whether Cohen took a commercial flight or private jet to Europe, and gave no explanation as to why no record of such a trip has surfaced.”
Now that Cohen has been called out for this lie, Trump is in even deeper sh*t that he realizes.
