By Daily Mail. A former campaign communications adviser to Donald Trump blew up at Democratic U.S. Senate aides on Tuesday at the end of a behind-the-scenes grilling connected to their wide-ranging Russia investigation.
New York-based political consultant Michael Caputo said he has spent $125,000 on attorneys to help him navigate the committee’s demands for documents and testimony, ruining his children’s economic future and forcing him to sell his family home.
Calling the probe a ‘witch hunt,’ Caputo demanded to know who is funding a secretive effort to continue digging into unsubstantiated allegations that Trump has ties with the Kremlin.
‘What America needs is an investigation of the investigators,’ he said. ‘I want to know: Who is paying for the spies’ work and coordinating this attack on President Donald Trump?’
‘I want to know who cost us so much money, who crushed our kids, who forced us out of our home, all because you lost an election. I want to know because [G-d] Damn you to Hell.’

Michael Caputo Says ‘It’s Clear’ Mueller Investigators Focused on Russia Collusion
By CNN. After being interviewed by special counsel investigators on Wednesday, former aide to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign Michael Caputo told CNN that Robert Mueller’s team is “focused on Russia collusion.”
“It’s clear they are still really focused on Russia collusion,” Caputo said, adding, “They know more about the Trump campaign than anyone who ever worked there.”
Caputo, who advised the Trump campaign on communications in 2016, has long insisted he has no information about collusion between Trump’s team and Russia. He spoke with Senate intelligence investigators on Tuesday for their Russia probe and outlined the differences between Congress’ inquiries and the special counsel’s . . .
Caputo lived and worked in Russia in the 1990s and later did business with Russian companies, including Gazprom, the Kremlin-controlled energy giant. As a Republican consultant, Caputo worked with Trump adviser Roger Stone and Paul Manafort, the former campaign chairman. He denies any wrongdoing regarding Russia. Caputo is a longtime ally of Stone’s, a close associate of Trump who has come under scrutiny in the Russian investigation because of Stone’s contacts with WikiLeaks during the campaign.
