The Definitive Debunking of the Cohen-In-Prague Canard. For some weird reason, the Deep State cannot let go of Prague, and thus we smell desperation at the dark heart of SpyGate. We recap the claim from the bogus Steele Dossier that Trump advisor Michael Cohen visited Prague in 2016 to conspire with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton. It just so happens that Fusion GPS, Christopher Steele, Nellie Ohr and Glenn Simpson got The Wrong Cohen in their illicit searches of the NSA database. Whoops! But they used the information anyways, to bamboozle FISA judges and surveil the Trump Campaign. Later on, the fraudulent claims were used to initiate the Mueller Investigation and cause harm to President Trump in the arena of public opinion. As a case study in the construction and dissemination of Propaganda, we dismantle the latest recrudescence of Cohen-In-Prague as served up this week by Greg Gordon and Peter Stone of the McClatchy DC Bureau. Their anonymous sources who heard it from anonymous sources. We review the ongoing string of outright denials from Cohen's attorney Lanny Davis, and also from Michael Cohen himself. We survey the reporting of Greg Miller of The Washington Post, who has found zero evidence of Cohen-In-Prague. Further, we sample the MSNBC interview of McClatchy's Greg Gordon with a surprisingly skeptical Joy Reid. A total embarrassment to the journalistic profession. The mistakes made in and around the Prague linchpin reveal the methods, motives and wholesale corruption of America's Deep State.
