A former campaign communications adviser to President Trump blasted Senate committee Democrats for conducting a ‘witch hunt” that has cost him dearly.
New York-based political consultant Michael Caputo delivered his scorching reprimand following a closed door testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday which he ended by giving Democrats the scathing rebuke, “God Damn you to Hell.”
Caputo, who worked on Trump’s 2016 campaign, revealed that the ongoing Russia probe into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin in the 2016 U.S. election has cost him his home, jeopardized his children’s future and has made his family a target of death threats, CNN reported.
He demanded answers about who continues to fund the allegations against Trump which have still not delivered any evidence of collusion.
“Your investigation and others into the allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russia are costing my family a great deal of money – more than $125,000 – and making a visceral impact on my children,” he said in his closing statement to the committee.
“Now I must to move back to Washington, New York City, Miami or elsewhere, just so I can make enough money to pay off these legal bills. And I know I have you to thank for that,” Caputo said.
“What America needs is an investigation of the investigators. I want to know who is paying for the spies’ work and coordinating this attack on President Donald Trump?” he continued. “Forget about all the death threats against my family. I want to know who cost us so much money, who crushed our kids, who forced us out of our home, all because you lost an election.”
“I want to know because God Damn you to Hell.,” he concluded.
Caputo, who lived in Russia for two decades and said he knows of no connections or contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian agents, has been forced to retain attorneys for the duration of the investigation.
In his statement on Tuesday, Caputo accused a former Senate Intelligence Committee Democratic staffer for Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Daniel Jones, of working “to raise $50 million from ten rich Democrats to finance more work on the FusionGPS Russian dossier. The one the FBI used to get a FISA warrant and intimidate President Donald Trump, without anyone admitting — until months after it was deployed — that it was paid for by Hillary Clinton.”
“In fact, good old Dan has been raising and spending millions to confirm the unconfirmable,” Caputo said.
In an interview with WBEN Radio, Caputo likened his testimony to the film “Groundhog Day.”
“It was like I fell asleep after going to the House Intelligence Committee in July of 2017 and I woke up nine months later and they didn’t know any more,” Caputo told WBEN. “They asked me the same questions and I gave them the same answers.”
A website has been set up to help with the legal fees for Caputo, who could be called back to testify before the committee again.
“I blame every single one of these people for what’s happening to my family in this environment and the Russian investigation,” Caputo told WBEN.
“I blame them for all the legal costs which is going to be more than $125,000 for my family – more than I make a year. I blame them for the problems that are going on in my family and the death threats that are coming at us every single week. I blame them for the fact that my wife, last month, got a piece of a sniper rifle in the mail from an anonymous sender,” he added. “I’ve made it very clear.”
