Michael Caputo made a major accusation against the Obama administration after it was revealed that an FBI informant might have attempted to join the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
Here’s what he said
Caputo, a former Trump campaign adviser, told Laura Ingraham Monday on her Fox News show that he believed he had been approached by a second informant during the campaign from a different Obama agency.
“Let me tell you something that I know for a fact,” Caputo said. “This informant, this person that they tried to plant into the campaign and even into the administration… he’s not the only person who came into the campaign.”
“And the FBI is not the only Obama agency who came into the campaign,” he charged.
“I know because they came at me,” Caputo explained. “And I’m looking for clearance from my attorney to reveal this to the public. This is just the beginning.”
“And I’ll tell you when we finally find out the truth about this, [former National Intelligence] Director [James] Clapper and the rest of them will be wearing some orange suits,” he asserted angrily.
Caputo was responding to accusations that an FBI informant had infiltrated the Trump campaign in order to spy for the sake of political purposes, which would be highly illegal. The former Trump aide has been questioned by special counsel Mueller, and he has objected strenuously to the legal costs he’s accumulated in the investigation he says has been purely for political purposes.
Here’s the video of Caputo’s accusation:
President Trump has demanded that the Department of Justice look into the claims, saying that if it were true, it would be “bigger than Watergate!”
Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI “SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT.” Andrew McCarthy says, “There’s probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign.” If so, this is bigger than Watergate!
