“I was sent there (Russia) by the Clinton administration to meddle in their elections.”
These are the words of one-time Clinton administration lackey Michael Caputo, openly admitting that he was sent to Russia by Bill Clinton to ensure the election of Boris Yeltsin.
The very same mainstream media, which is nothing more than a mouthpiece for the Democrat Party, never mentioned it, didn’t care about it. What they care about is obstructing President Trump’s administration with false allegations of Russian involvement, when in fact Slick Willie is guilty of ACTUAL Russian election meddling.
I’m telling you right now the Democrat Party and the Alphabet Network Club are only hurting themselves more and more every day. Mom and Pop America have this figured out by now. They clearly see that the Democrat Party and mainstream media are lying. Yet they persist in embarrassing themselves on national TV all day, every day with the Russian fairy tale.

Michael Caputo, a former top Trump campaign adviser with strong ties to Russia, told CNN in an exclusive interview that he “never once” discussed nor heard anyone else mention Russian involvement in the race to defeat Hillary Clinton.
“No one ever breathed the word ‘Russia’ to me,” Caputo said in the interview, conducted days before he testified to the House intelligence committee Friday.
Caputo, who advised the campaign on communications, is one of several former Trump campaign aides who are being questioned as part of a multi-pronged investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. In fact, of all of President Donald Trump’s campaign workers, Caputo might be the one with the deepest links to Russia: He lived in Moscow for several years in the 1990s, claims to have worked for the Kremlin and continues to try to do business there.
A colorful public relations specialist and fill-in radio talk-show host in Buffalo, New York, Caputo agreed to testify behind closed doors, at the insistence of the Republican and Democratic committee leaders. But he said he wanted his story — his denial of wrongdoing — to be made public.
“I heard nothing of the kind,” Caputo said, when asked if he ever heard anyone inside the campaign discuss Russian assistance. US intelligence agencies have determined that Russia interfered with the election in order to help Trump win. “In fact, we were so busy just trying to keep up with the sun rising and setting on that campaign that I can’t imagine anyone had the time, nor the wherewithal to go out there and even do something like this.
“Anybody who covered the Trump effort knew this was a pell-mell operation from the moment he woke up in the morning until the moment he went to bed,” he said. “The idea that somebody at that campaign would have had the forethought and the treachery … or the resources to go out and do this is laughable.”
Caputo talked to CNN on Monday, the day before Donald Trump Jr. released emails that raised further questions about potential collusion between his father’s campaign and the Russian government. According to the emails, Trump’s eldest son agreed to meet with a woman described as a “Russian government lawyer” because he was told she had damaging information on Clinton. Jared Kushner, the President’s son-in-law and now a senior White House adviser, and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort also attended the meeting on June 9, 2016.
Less than two weeks later, on June 20, Caputo resigned from the campaign after celebrating the dismissal of campaign manager Corey Lewandowski with a tweet that said, “Ding Dong the witch is dead.” Manafort, who brought Caputo onto the campaign in November 2015, replaced Lewandowski as chairman.
Still loyal to the President, Caputo defended Trump Jr.
“You try to find ways to trip up your opponent. And if somebody comes to you and says, ‘I’ve got, you know, the smoking gun on the … Clinton campaign,’ you have that meeting. You definitely have that meeting. … If that lawyer had contacted me, I would have recommended she meet with somebody else, but I would have passed it up the chain of command.”
Caputo’s history in Russia dates to 1994, when he says the US government sent him there to help the country’s young government design election laws.
“I was sent there by the Clinton administration to meddle in their elections,” he said, flippantly using language that alludes to the current controversy.
