Washington Post National Security reporter recently claimed CIA and FBI sources told the newspaper they do not believe the Steele dossier’s allegations about Michael Cohen are accurate.
“We’ve talked to sources at the FBI and the CIA and elsewhere — they don’t believe that ever happened,” said Greg Miller, a national security reporter for WaPo.
The dossier alleges Cohen visited Prague in August 2016 to arrange payments to Russia-linked hackers who stole emails from Democrats.
WaPo has aggressively investigated the dossier’s assertions, said Miller. He said reporters for the paper “literally spent weeks and months trying to run down” leads from the report.
“We sent reporters through every hotel in Prague, through all over the place, just to try to figure out if he was ever there, and came away empty,” said Miller. close
