President Donald Trump's longtime attorney Michael Cohen vehemently denied claims he traveled to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, calling reports he made the trip "bad reporting" and stating he had "never been to Prague," The Hill reported Saturday.

"Bad reporting, bad information and bad story by same reporter Peter Stone @McClatchyDC. No matter how many times or ways they write it, I have never been to Prague. I was in LA with my son. Proven!" Cohen tweeted Saturday.

On Friday, McClatchy reported Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller had evidence Cohen visited Prague during the last presidential campaign and met with a prominent ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

If confirmed, the trip would "lend credence" to the controversial and unsubstantiated dossier prepared by former British spy Christopher Steele that "Cohen strategized there with a powerful Kremlin figure about Russian meddling," according to McClatchy.

It also could undercut President Trump's longstanding claim that "there is no evidence of collusion" with Moscow in the campaign.

Early last year Cohen denied traveling to Prague shortly after the Steele dossier was publicly released. "I have never been to Prague in my life," Cohen tweeted in January 2017.

FBI agents raided Cohen's office and hotel room on Monday, partly on a referral by Mueller.
