    Quite true. And not all of it is confirmed; we can only say that many parts of it are confirmed and so far, none of it has been shown to be false.

    That doesn't mean that there's no falsehood in it; it just means that no one yet has found any.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    Oh, and the "Cohen in Prague" report?

    A mobile phone traced to President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen briefly sent signals ricocheting off cell towers in the Prague area in late summer 2016, at the height of the presidential campaign, leaving an electronic record to support claims that Cohen met secretly there with Russian officials, four people with knowledge of the matter say.

    During the same period of late August or early September, electronic eavesdropping by an Eastern European intelligence agency picked up a conversation among Russians, one of whom remarked that Cohen was in Prague, two people familiar with the incident said.

    The phone and surveillance data, which have not previously been disclosed, lend new credence to a key part of a former British spy’s dossier of Kremlin intelligence describing purported coordination between Trump’s campaign and Russia’s election meddling operation.

    So there's one more confirmed. Unless Cohen lost his phone, someone took it and went to Prague, making a phone call on it, and then returning it to Cohen.

    And the Russians might have been talking about some other Cohen who was working for Trump, who happened to be in Prague at the same time the thief was using Cohen's phone.

    Might have happened that way...
