Michael Caputo, a communications adviser for many months during the Trump campaign, testified for three plus hours before the House Intelligence Committee Friday afternoon, and said in his opinion the Russia scandal comes down to two words: “collusion delusion.”
“I completely believe there was no collusion in the Trump campaign, but all I can do is speak for myself and the people I’m close with,” Caputo told the Washington Examiner after his testimony, characterizing the overall hearing as a “fishing expedition.”
“The problem we have is the Democrats have no interest in ending these investigations. They’re looking to extend this as long as possible because they’re successfully stopping Donald Trump from implementing his agenda. He may have won the election, but they have won the first year of his presidency — the most important year of a presidency,” he added later.
Caputo declined to detail any specific questions he faced in the testimony because he said it would harm the integrity of the investigation, adding that only four members were present.
