Trump attorney Cohen on intelligence dossier: 'I've never been to Prague and I've never been to Russia'

Written by  Fox News

President-elect Donald Trump's special counsel lashed out at CNN and BuzzFeed Wednesday night after his name emerged in connection with unverified claims that Russian spies had aided Trump's successful presidential campaign.

Soon after the report was published, Cohen denied that he was in Prague during the period alleged in the dossier. Cohen told Washingtonian magazine that the only trip he took during that time was with his son to Los Angeles, where they visited the baseball program at USC.

Cohen told Sean Hannity that Trump himself asked Cohen to produce his passport after details of the dossier were made public.
