Ex-Trump Aide Refuses To Comply With Democrats’ “Fishing Expedition”

Guest pot by Mike LaChance at American Lookout:

Former Trump aide Michael Caputo is done with the Democrats and their endless investigations. They want to drag it out but he has consulted his lawyer and he is done playing.

He writes at FOX News:

Dems want my testimony in Trump investigation – but I have nothing to say or give them

I got a text from a reporter Monday telling me I am on the list of 81 associates of President Trump receiving document production requests from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y. That was news to me.

I didn’t receive the letter from the newly installed Democratic leader of the most powerful committee in the House of Representatives. I got it from a reporter. My attorney also didn’t get the letter from Nadler – I had to send him the letter the reporter gave me.

This inauspicious beginning signaled the start of yet another bogus Russia investigation, this time by the new Democratic majority in the House.

After directing broadcast media coverage for seven House committees, I know the signs of a sideshow – and delivering demand letters to reporters before they go to the person being asked to produce documents is one of the chief signs…

But this isn’t new to my family and me. After working for the Trump presidential campaign for eight months, I’ve been hauled in to testify before two other congressional committees and investigators working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Scott Adams is sticking up for him:

You can’t blame Caputo for fighting this. The legal battle has already cost him a fortune.

The Hill reported in May of last year:

Ex-Trump aide decries Senate Russia probe over high legal bills: report

Michael Caputo, a former communications adviser to President Trump’s campaign, blasted the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, saying that its Russia probe has him racking up high legal bills.

“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,” Caputo told the committee in a prepared statement read during a closed-door interview.

Good for him for standing up now.
