Michael Caputo to Senate Intel Committee: ‘God Damn You to Hell’

Michael Caputo to Senate Intel Committee: ‘God Damn You to Hell’

“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”

Former Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo did not mince words during a hearing with Senate Intelligence Committee who is still pursuing an investigation into alleged Trump campaign/Russia collusion.

Caputo claims the investigation has forced his family out of their home and racked up a whopping $125,000 in legal fees to date.

The Washington Examiner obtained Caputo’s statement:

Republican consultant and former Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo told the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday, “God damn you to hell,” during an interview as part of the panel’s Russia investigation.

In Caputo’s closing statement obtained by the Washington Examiner, he said the panel’s investigation “forced” his family out of their home and “crushed” his children due to mounting legal costs associated with the inquiry.

“Today, I can’t possibly pay the attendant legal costs and live near my aging father, raising my kids where I grew up,” Caputo said. “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 accused members of the Senate Intelligence Committee of working together and contributing to the “swamp” — a term often used by President Trump to describe the bureaucracy in Washington, D.C.

Can you blame him?

Caputo called for an “investigation of the investigators” and said he wanted to know who was “coordinating this attack on President Donald Trump.”

“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,” Caputo said. “I want to know because God damn you to hell.”

According to the Buffalo News, Caputo sees the investigation as little more than a “witch hunt.”

Staff members from the Senate Intelligence Committee questioned East Aurora Republican consultant Michael R. Caputo for three hours Tuesday, probing his connections in Russia and with Donald Trump’s presidential campaign as they continued their investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Caputo, who worked for the Trump campaign in late 2015 and early 2016, said the staffers questioned him about 20 or so people associated with the campaign. He said the investigators asked him if he aware if any of those people had any contacts with Russia during the campaign.

“My answer for each of them was the same,” Caputo said. “There was none.”

The people the staffers asked about included former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort; informal adviser Roger Stone; Donald Trump Jr.; and the president’s son in law, Jared Kushner

Caputo’s appearance before the Senate panel came 10 months after he spoke to the House Intelligence Committee. He said the Senate staffers seemed much less political than those on the House side, asking him nonpartisan questions about his past and his contacts.

Congress has been investigating alleged collusion between Trump campaign operatives and Russian agents for a year. They’ve yet to find any proof anyone knowingly or willingly worked at the behest of Russia.

Americans should be suing the DNC, MSM and all their evil allies.

Mr. Caputo, are you now or have you ever been a member of Trump’s party?

The idea that the government can come after an innocent man and simply bankrupt him has bothered me for a long time. How can this be right? If you are guilty, ok, you maybe lose. But if you are not? Government should cover your costs.

    It’s funny that you would ask that question because that is EXACTLY what Mueller did TWICE during the anthrax FBI investigations. One was finally exonerated and the other committed suicide but believed to be innocent after his death. Congress and the left never consider the damage they cause by their casual threats and accusations to the little people.

      JusticeDelivered in reply to inspectorudy. | May 2, 2018 at 9:24 pm

      I was looking into that case when the man committed suicide, meaning that there was nothing which could be done to help him. The problem is that there are far more injustices which should be addressed than people who are capable to do so.

    And Caputo was only ever considered a witness, not suspected of any criminal activity. And yet here he is. An innocent person shouldn’t need to hire an attorney to advise him on his testimony before Congressional Committees you say? Only a fool speaks to Congress or law enforcement without a lawyer. And if possible doesn’t speak at all.

legacyrepublican | May 2, 2018 at 6:24 pm

I’m not joking when I say that this clip of dialogue should be part of some radio or TV ad that ever Republican in the country should run for this November.

It says all that needs to be said.

This – and the rest of the chaos going on – rests squarely in AG Session’s lap. His fecklessness (or corruption?) is letting the inmates go wild.

    I can honestly say that I have never been more disappointed in politician than I am in Sessions. He needs to either do his job or resign.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to | May 2, 2018 at 9:09 pm

    Sessions sure has been a disappointment. I had great hopes he would weed bad apples out of DOJ. It is pretty clear that the far left has operatives shifting the scale of justice to align with their political correctness and I am having a hard time seeing that Sessions is doing anything to fix this problem.

Two simple questions that expresses all of our anger:
How many innocent people have been RUINED in the last 2 years?

Are there not any reasonably wealthy conservatives who can offer a spare house for this guy? Leftists will find room for a terrorist on the run, can’t we find room for a normal guy?

    inspectorudy in reply to beagleEar. | May 2, 2018 at 7:08 pm

    He could use “Go fund me” like the professional liar McCabe did TWICE!

    It sounds like a good idea on the surface, BUT…

    Making that kind of move exposes your assets to the greedy fingers of government prosecutors who can then subpoena your financial records under the suspicion that you are engaged in a criminal conspiracy with the defendant to defraud…

    Then two years later after two IRS audits, a million bucks in attorney fees, criminal investigators poking their noses into every aspect of your life and interviewing your neighbors (“So, did Mr. X ever have any large drug-fueled parties with strippers?”) the Feds just wander away. Oh, they *found* criminal acts, because who among us has not committed three felonies a day (read the book), but they’re going to hold those back in case you sue. And you’re not going to sue and risk going to jail, are you, comrade?

      JusticeDelivered in reply to georgfelis. | May 2, 2018 at 9:54 pm

      A solution to that is to set up a nonprofit, and dispense aid from that entity. There are way to many people being done in by schemers.

inspectorudy | May 2, 2018 at 7:11 pm

This whole misadventure needs to be thrown into the SCOTUS and stopped now! This entire case is based on a lie and made up evidence. We all know that now and if all the intelligence agencies of our government have not found any collusion, which
BTW is not a crime, it is time to stop this crap! For Mueller to keep on trying for a process crime is below anything in our history concerning the POTUS.

Close The Fed | May 2, 2018 at 8:08 pm

Sorry; I think it’s time for Trump to man up, and looking at his twitter feed, he’s thinking about it.

He needs to assert his presidential powers and prerogatives and end this business. It’s bad for the country, and it’s bad for the innocent lives it’s ruining.

In the book by Jon Meacham, “Thomas Jefferson, the Art of Power,” the author writes about Thomas Jefferson’s* refusal to comply with a subpoena to testify in person at Aaron Burr’s** trial for treason.

President Jefferson declined to testify in person although he was subpoenaed by U.S. Attorney George Hay.

Pres. Jefferson declared that “As I do not believe that the district courts have a power of commanding the Executive government to abandon superior duties and attend on them, at whatever distance, I am unwilling by any notice of the subpoena to set a precedent which might sanction a proceeding so preposterous.”

He sent relevant documents instead.

*Mr. Jefferson being our 3rd president.

**Aaron Burr being Mr. Jefferson’s vice-president during his first term.

A 6 trimester post-birth (inauguration) baby hunt? But it started several trimesters after conception (registration). If they haven’t found the baby yet, then it is utterly transhuman to continue the baby trial, and the collateral damage is not only liberal (i.e. divergent) but progressive (i.e. monotonic).

Mr. Rosenstein also seems to be in need of a punch to the face for his flagrant arrogance and likely obstruction.

I’ll probably get boiled in hot oil for saying it… but why did his attorneys charge so much? Whatever they have done, on his behalf, has not served him well.

    Close The Fed in reply to NotKennedy. | May 2, 2018 at 8:51 pm

    I regret saying this, but doesn’t sound as if they charged him more than would be typical. I recently represented a party in a divorce case with kids, and we did very little discovery, had no hearings, and had basically a day of mediation. We did have an extended back and forth over details in the settlement contract. I billed the client $12,000+.

    Legal work is extremely labor intensive.

      franker in reply to Close The Fed. | May 2, 2018 at 9:06 pm

      12K, huh?

      Yeah, it must be extremely labor intensive.

      Think of all the butt sores from sitting at a desk and telling underlings to do things.

      No wonder most people hate lawyers.


        Close The Fed in reply to franker. | May 2, 2018 at 9:10 pm

        With due respect Franker, one advantage of the computer age is that some sole practitioners do the work themselves, so no underlings to order about.

        Desk work gets old, but what gets older is watching women tear families apart for light and transient reasons.

          franker in reply to Close The Fed. | May 2, 2018 at 9:27 pm

          I’m sorry I down voted you when first trying to reply.

          I know desk work gets old because that is what consumes much of my time but I don’t get to bill 15 minutes when a client calls to ask me what is going on (and the answer is nothing).

          Whether my criticism of the Legal Profession is based on Jealousy or Righteous Indignation matters not although I would argue that the latter applies.

          Since I am on a Legal Site I don’t want to dig too deep a hole for myself so I will leave it at that.

    DaveGinOly in reply to NotKennedy. | May 2, 2018 at 9:09 pm

    An attorney is necessary for three things:
    1. Tell the investigative body, “No testimony without immunity.”
    2. Negotiating an immunity deal.
    3. Instructing the client, “Now, in response to the investigators’ questions, tell the truth.”
    How much can that cost? Surely, in D.C. there are attorneys who can do this for a very modest flat fee!

    Or you can “plead the Fifth” all by yourself, no actual lawyer necessary.

Dilbert Deplorable | May 2, 2018 at 8:50 pm

well…Mr. Caputo is a class act because those are not the words I would have chosen. It would have been a 30-minute rant with every other phrase as ‘you fkkkkers’ and ‘we need to hang those responsible’.

with all due respect of course.

I still believe that these Dems/Progs cannot get over the idea that the smartest woman in the world lost a rigged election to someone who has never held elected office.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to Romey. | May 2, 2018 at 8:59 pm

    LOL “Smartest Women” in a greased pig contest maybe…… but doubtful……

There is a GoFundme account to help cover his legal expenses:

If the left doesn’t win, they bring you to the pauper house through litigation. Where even if they lose they win because you are made broke through legal fees. This is not how America was founded.

    franker in reply to oldgoat36. | May 2, 2018 at 9:53 pm

    If Republicans/Conservatives (I recognize the distinction) are so smart then why in the hell are rings always being run around them by Leftist Judges, Leftist Congresspeople, the MSM, Leftist Lawyers and most destructively themselves and their own stupidity.

    I don’t get it.


      MarkS in reply to franker. | May 2, 2018 at 10:47 pm

      Good question, and IMO the answer is they always respond to a brass knuckle attack by curling up in the fetal position and sucking their thumbs because of sheer whimpiness

        franker in reply to MarkS. | May 2, 2018 at 10:56 pm

        Is it the curse of Thomas Dewey?

        What the hell is going on with these people?

        After Reagan it became the Great Republican Sludge Pile and Trump – for all about him that we love – is an outlier and will have a hell of a time retaining his Presidency – let alone getting anything done – if the Dims win the House and, God Forbid, the Senate.

        Other than that things are going swimmingly.


Mr Caputo is wasting his time if he thinks he will induce any pangs of shame in any Leftist. They play hardball and the response should always be cutthroat

If someone or Mr Caputo opens a go fund me page I would be happy to give him a few bucks and I am sure so would thousands of other people. I would have paid to see him tell of those sanctimonious pieces of garbage.

C. Lashown | May 3, 2018 at 7:19 am

The progressive Left have only recruited one more warrior/planner for the 2nd American Revolution – nothing more. The elite politico’s feel that they are beyond being held accountable…but I think they may be taught a few things about accountability in the coming years. Kick the hornets nest enough times and they will be stung! Destroy a man’s family via lawfare will make a resolute enemy of him for decades to come.

Off topic, but I yesterday on the Five Dana Perino out of nowhere states how lucky Trump is to have Rod Rosenstein. She then went on to say how fair and good he is for the country. Obviously a setup from the never Trumpers. The rest of the panel didn’t respond.

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | May 3, 2018 at 9:02 am

The UK Daily Mail published what I believe is his entire closing statement. The headline is “TRUMP AIDE MICHAEL CAPUTO’S SHOCKING STATEMENT TO THE SENATE INTEL COMMITTEE”

This is the Tyranny the founders envisioned!
