Ex-Trump Campaign Adviser Questioned by Mueller Team: They Don't Have 'Anything' on Collusion
A former adviser for President Trump's 2016 campaign who was interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigators expressed skepticism about the collusion case.
Michael Caputo was interviewed by Mueller's team last week, and he told Bill Hemmer Monday that none of the collusion questions he was asked had to do with the president.
"They don't have anything new," Caputo said. "What they thought might be new is not even factual."
"There is no Russian collusion on the Trump campaign, there never was, and I don't think the Mueller team has anything."
Caputo said his and his wife's names were brought up by Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) during a public hearing by the House Intelligence Committee last March.
He said Speier called him "[Vladimir] Putin's image-maker" and that since then, his family has received a multitude of threats.

A GoFundMe for Caputo also states that he "has incurred tens of thousands of dollars of legal bills while defending the GOP and the President of the United States."
Caputo said, though, that his family isn't in any legal peril, as he has only been named a "witness" rather than a "subject" or "target."
"I'm just the only person out there talking about this. There are another dozen or more people, middle-class families, who's dad or mom has been dragged into this," he said.
"If you're not going to be investigated, if you're not going to be indicted, if you're not going to jail, they're going to break you financially because it's about ruining every single one of us," he said.
