“I have never in my life been to Prague or to anywhere in the Czech Republic,” he said.
Cohen has vehemently denied for months that he ever has been in Prague or colluded with Russia during the campaign. Neither he nor his lawyer responded to requests for comment for this story.
It’s unclear whether Mueller’s investigators also have evidence that Cohen actually met with a prominent Russian – purportedly Konstantin Kosachev, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin — in the Czech capital. Kosachev, who chairs the Foreign Affairs Committee of a body of the Russian legislature, the Federation Council, also has denied visiting Prague during 2016. Earlier this month, Kosachev was among 24 high-profile Russians hit with stiff U.S. sanctions in retaliation for Russia’s meddling.
But investigators have traced evidence that Cohen entered the Czech Republic through Germany, apparently during August or early September of 2016 as the ex-spy reported, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is confidential. He wouldn’t have needed a passport for such a trip, because both countries are in the so-called Schengen Area in which 26 nations operate with open borders. The disclosure still left a puzzle: The sources did not say whether Cohen took a commercial flight or private jet to Europe, and gave no explanation as to why no record of such a trip has surfaced.
Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller’s office, declined comment.

I thought this was debunked months ago. It was investigated and found to have been a different man named Michael Cohen...

In January of last year, within a day or two of BuzzFeed publishing the dossier, the reporting from Trump supporters' favorite source, CNN, was that intelligence officials believed that it was a different Michael Cohen. (Michael Cohen is probably not the rarest name)
It could be that CNN's sources and therefore their reporting was wrong, it's also entirely possible that Mueller's team found things that the original investigators did not. It's also possible that McClatchy's sources are wrong here.
I guess we'll find out eventually.
