NEW YORK—President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen tried to discredit a report alleging he had taken a secret trip to Prague at the height of the 2016 presidential campaign.
He claimed he has never visited the country and had instead been in Los Angeles with his son during the supposed trip abroad.
“Bad reporting, bad information and bad story by same reporter,” he tweeted, addressing the story’s author by name.
“No matter how many times or ways they write it, I have never been to Prague. I was in LA with my son. Proven!” he tweeted Saturday.
A report alleges Cohen met secretly with Kremlin-linked Russian officials in an the Czech Republic in August 2016.
It provided more details about the “clandestine meeting” in a follow up report — which Cohen vehemently denied.
“I have never been to Prague in my life. #fakenews,” Cohen tweeted on Jan. 10, 2017, after the dossier was released.
