Just a few days after former Trump campaign worker and Western New York native Michael Caputo met with the House Intelligence Committee, the president tweeted his support for him.
Caputo is part of the congressional investigation into alleged Russian interference in last year's presidential election.
Thank you to former campaign adviser Michael Caputo for saying so powerfully that there was no Russian collusion in our winning campaign.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 16, 2017
In the past, Caputo worked for a Russian media company and was hired to improve Vladimir Putin's image in the U.S.
Caputo says he left that company shortly after, and has no love for Putin.
