WASHINGTON, D.C. (WIVB) – A Western New Yorker and former campaign adviser for President Donald Trump testified Friday before the House Committee into Russia’s ties to the 2016 election.
Caputo, who was on the Trump campaign from November 2015 to June 2016, had lived in Russia in the 1990s working for the U.S. government.
He returned to the U.S. in 2000 and worked as a public relations adviser to a subsidiary of the state-owned Russian conglomerate, Gazprom.
In May, Caputo told News 4 he has complied with that request by responding that he doesn’t have any documents relevant to the investigation. He would not give us any further details.
News 4 obtained a copy of Caputo’s response to the House Committee, dated May 19. In the letter, Caputo says “I knew nothing of this matter, I had no discussions of this matter when I served the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump, nor did I send or receive emails about the topic.”
